2002 Volvo C70 Coupe HT 2dr Coupe (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Engine was sound and performed exceptional, however she was put down in June of 2008. I my wife & two kids traveled the 405 south bound in the carpool lane. A diesel trucks tire traveling north bound became dislodged (rim included). Now airborne crossed several lanes headed for opposing traffic with exact aim at my windshield. Not being able to move left or right I pushed the accelerator praying the tire would miss the car. No luck! Striking the roof of the car and crashing into the cabin before bouncing off. Insurance company declared the car a total loss. My wife, two kids, and I walked away without a scratch. With superb safety/build qualities 4 souls were saved by Volvo


Best Features

Interior styling, Dolby Digital Prologic, exterior styling. Handling & the 236hp turbo engine is an understatement, once turbo kicked felt like 300hp


Worst Features

2002 model could have used as a factory option a sport suspension & and navigation, along with steering wheel controls for the radio. An better cupholders.

Review

After lusting for this car since it came out in 1998, I finally bought one. After owning (2) BMW 3-series cars including an M-3 I have to say that the Volvo is far more car for the money (especially when buying used). The exterior design is as sexy as it gets, the interior is roomy, and the dash is elegant and easy to use from the get go. The seats get no better, and the Turbo is like Jet propulsion. For driving in the "Real world" this rare vehicle is a great pick without question.


Best Features

The styling, the seats and the turbo!


Worst Features

Usable cupholders.

Review

This is my second Volvo (the S40 2000 was my first) and I love this black beauty! I enjoy the tight handling and the superior excelation (a little turbo- lag would have prefered a super- charger). The looks and comments I get on her are amazing. Everytime I go into Manhattan and park her the attendants always ask how she drives and that it is the best looking coupe on the planet. Needless to say it's a "chick-magnet" and that's a good thing! My sound system is the high end version and I've added XM Satelite Radion to the mix!


Best Features

Boomin' Sound System; the shape and design...


Worst Features

More power; rear seat accessability; AWD & geartronics

Review

Overall the best car for the money. I thought Volvo's were boring until I drove this car. The seats and driving comfort are so nice especially compared to the BMW 3-Series...firm yet soft. I find the controls on the BMW small but the C70 is very straight forward. The only down side to this car is the lack of shifting ability for the automatic compared to others but do yourself a favor leave it 3- gear on some back roads and let the turbo rev like it should! I must mention that the torque-pull is strong if you have a heavy foot...that's ok I'll take the power.


Best Features

Fast and safe with unique look compared to others in it's class.


Worst Features

It takes forever to get into the back seat...manual entry would have been better. A few drink holders in the back would be appreciated.
