Review

I bought my 2002 C70 used in 2009. It ran great for about 6 months & then had a host of problems that caused multiple trips to the shop, including one that lasted 3 months. The car doesn't always start. Turning the key over and trying again sometimes works, but Volvo told me that trick as they can't fix it. The transmission slips & it has gotten progressively worse to the point that the car is only reliable for trips under 15 min. Volvo can't diagnose that problem either & suggested changing the trans, but will not guarantee that it's the fix. The rear windshield has dropped & is suspended by the headliner. I need an auto upholstery shop to stitch it back in as the glue won't hold.

Review

Like everyone says, it's fun to drive. That's true. My wife's car and it's been the biggest pain to own. We tell our friends that when you look at the car you do not see a single original part, its all been replaced under warranty. No kidding our stack of maintenance receipts looks like a magazine, a thick one. One day while driving I was passenger, the dash just snapped in half. Problem after problem. As I write, it is in the shop for a new fan and fan assembly which is on back order because they ran out. Symptom was smoke coming out of it, never a good symptom. Engine block is the only original under the hood. It's only safe because it rarely runs. But she loves it.

Review

Spacious, comfortable convertible. Best convertible to accommodate tall driver and has the most room in back seat for passengers vs others. Power top fabulous. Well placed controls. This car is in addition to my Corvette when we needed room for three. Sporty, yet functional. Reasonable gas economy. Good mechanically. Very reliable. Dealers supply loaner. Very fair pricing for a fun car! Only recommend HT convertible with the higher HP and would even like more power, of course!

2002 Volvo C70

Review

The car has numerous rattles and squeaks. It needed a complete replacement of the radiator and transmission cooler at 42,000 miles. The turning radius is way to wide and one would hardly know it has power steering. Gear indicator on dash is totally inadequate and stupid. The driver's seat has worn unacceptably given the milage. It has poor visibility when backing up. On the bright side: it handles wonderfully on the open road, and it is fun to drive with the top down in town. Overall it is a poor value, and I likely will never buy another Volvo as a result of owning this car.

2002 C70 Review

Review

The C70 is very enjoyable to drive with the top down. Otherwise it is one of the least enjoyable cars we have owned. The suspension is too stiff for a convertible as that has led to numerous squeaks and rattles for which the dealer has no solution. One would never know it has power steering and the turning radius is far too wide. Trunk is negligible as is true with many convertibles. There is no indicator on the dash showing what gear you or in - just a small silly orange arrow pointing up if you are not in top gear. The parking light assembly simply fell out. Leather seats are showing significant wear after only about 30,000 miles. The mechanism for lowering the top works well.

Love the car. HP model is very quick, especially over 40 mph. Surprising little body roll, Best looking in its class, especially top down. The rear seats are well-sized and surprisingly good trunk space. Love the car overall.

Review

The car was good the first two years, but then things started going wrong and wrong and wrong. Dealer could not fix recurring problem with starting. Needed to always carry all three keys because you never knew which one would start it. Funny smell that dealer could never locate. It is my fourth and last Volvo.

Review

I was swayed by the looks when I bought this car. It has been in the show more than a dozen times in one year. The windows rattle, the top flaps in the wind, the turning radius is almost unsafe, and twice my brakes have malfunctioned and needed major repair - with only 25K mileage. Good looking is the only good thing I can say about his car.

Worst Car Ever Owned

Review

I never knew that a car could be in the shop more than you drive it - but I found one !! 21 times in the 1st 2 years - the sad part is that Volvo refused to take it back - it would have been in their best interest - they wouldn't be getting reviews like this one. If anything could go wrong - it did !! But we have low milage and the lease is almost over. They agreed that they were having a lot of electrical problems with that model - tops not working, lights not working, windows not working - that's why they have discontinued this model - so they say. Just bought a BMW - hopes it better !!
