2001 Volvo C70 Convertible LT 2dr Convertible (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is a beautiful automobile that will turn heads and is fun to ride around with the top down. However if it was not a convt. I would still not own it. I bought it used and got a great deal but if I bought off the lot at $43,000 list I would be very upset. I have had lots of small problems, cd player broken, leaks at window seals, bad wind noise with windows up, cowl shake, small engine issues, and the lights blow constantly. I am shocked to have these issues with a high priced Volvo. I would have gotten rid of this car by now if it was no for the fact that it is fun with the top down and you can actually get adults comfortably in the back.


Favorite Features

Style, comfortable in the back, high quality materials on the inside, premium stereo, top down driving


Suggested Improvements

better cup holders, better reliablity, light under hood (ridiculous for a car this expensive), sun visors that move to side window, bigger storage bin in console,

Horrible suspension causes breaks and leaks. No turn radius. Its a beautiful car that is fun to ride, but too many trips to the dealership for a high priced luxury vehicle.

Review

We bought the volvo for fun. The honeymoon wore off real quick. This has to be the noiseiest car i have ever ridden in. I have the same issues as other reviewers, bad cup holders, can't see out the back window, non moving sun shade, gas cap light (check engine). Enough bad it is a great looking car and the lifting and lowering of the top turns heads.


Favorite Features

Great looks, performance.


Suggested Improvements

Train your dealers about customer service. Quiet the interior.

Review

Fun to drive when the top is down. Otherwise back seat is useless and annoying to put anything in due to annoyingly slow motorized seats. Visibility out rear view mirror with top up is annoyingly non-existent. Mechanical problems have been annoying but fixed at no charge --recurring front end turning issue that goes away briefly only to annoyingly return. OPening window or door in rain gets car wet.


Favorite Features

Putting the top up or down.


Suggested Improvements

Re-engineer it completely
