Worth the wait and effort

Vehicle2001 Volvo C70 HT 2dr Convertible (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI looked long and hard for this car. It took over 3 months of searching to find a 5 speed in the HPT. It was well worth the wait. Handling is phenomenal. A joy to drive on a winding country road. The pick up is great. First gear to about 15 mph. Shift into second, hit the gas and the turbo kicks in to push you back in your seat. Even at highway speeds there is plenty of power left for a quick acceleration to pass or avoid another car or just for the fun of it. The C70 is traditional Volvo quality and sturdiness. Even with hard driving I am able to mainatian gas mileage of 20.7 MPG. My recommendation is go out and get one now.
Best FeaturesWind/road noise is quite reasonable when the top is up. The fully automatic convertibile top works flawlessly with no levers to hook or unhook, just push one button. The body styling is classic volvo with curves that definitely make for a sexy look to the car.
