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

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.

Favorite Features

Wheels are very nice. Convertible is great experience. Turbo has some punch!

Suggested Improvements

Turning radius is horrible. Gas cap release is using string, string Cup holders should be called Cup dumpers. CD player is bad European design, not intuitive at all and often fails. Front seats should more easily tilt forward for rear seat passengers to enter.
