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.
Extremely roomy - even with four adults.
Seats are very comfortable.
Great pickup with turbo engine.
Ice cold A/C. Love that there is no manual effort to put the top up or down.
Better glue on the rear windshield.
Should be able to access middle console when a drink is in the cup holder.
If the car needs to be this complicated, then Volvo dealers should be able to diagnose the problem.
Mine is just a big mystery.
Turning radius limits my ability to do a u-turn, even when turning into double lane traffic.
All buttons have become sticky over time (probably because I live in the tropics).
Very poor visibility when backing up or switching lanes (probably a general convertible issue).
