Review of the 2000 Volvo C70

  • Based on a platform that is nearly a decade old, the C70 is a comfortable, sleek coupe with no real sporting ambition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy inside, sexy outside, Volvo safe under the skin. Turbo provides enough power to satisfy.

  • Cons

    Poorly conceived easy-entry power feature for front seats. Tacked-on look of Dolby center-dash speaker.

  • What's New for 2000

    Volvo introduces a high-pressure turbo (HPT) convertible and makes minor equipment changes to all C70s for 2000.

Dont ever buy a volvo!!!!

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 LT Turbo 2dr Convertible

The worst car I have ever bought! the door panels came off a week after I bought it, the door locks stopped working and I had to buy new ones and those still didnt fix the problem, the rear window caved in for a second time, every single light on the dash has indicated something wrong with the car, the transmission is giving out and now the check engine light is on and there is a rocking motion that wont go away. VERY hard to turn, almost like I am driving a bus, and the rocking motion is just like that of a yellow bus starting to move. When I go for a short distance on city streets it starts smoking. This car is so scary to drive and very frustrating. Never again will I ever buy a volvo.




Buyer beware!

Nice looking car. That is where it ends. A full array of electrical problems, transmission issues. The dashboard looks like a x-mas tree from day 1. Absolutely a horrible vehicle,. Looks nice, but I went with a BMW this time. A 40,000 hunk of electrical nightmares.




I love it!!!

I bought this car after my jeep died. It is a 2000 with 65000 miles on it. I couldn't be happier. Of course repairs on the car can be a bit pricy but I've had few problems. The only issue I have had is with the top chime sensor. It kept going off while driving. Apparently one of the wires was pinching causing the malfunction. I am taking the car in this week to have this issue addressed. Hopefully it won't cost too terribly much.

Awesome car

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 HT Turbo 2dr Convertible

Never had a material issue with the car and I drive it hard. Awesome performance. Full feature set at $10,000 less than the expensive add-on approach of BMW or Mercedes.




Great car for 2

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 HT Turbo 2dr Convertible

Great car, big enough to put the kids in the back seat, but as any two door car a hassle to let them in and out of. VERY QUIET, no more noise than a sedan or coupe. With the top up, it feels like a coupe.

It was b/w Volvo and BMW. Many more BMW's than Volvo's on the road and I now know why. More defects and recalls than any car ever owned. Dealer unable to fix problems - particularly the roof. Depreciates like a rock. At least mine was a lease. Don't be foolish - a worst buy choice.
