2003 Volvo C70 HT 2dr Convertible (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


I have always owned mid priced - full sized convertibles (Cutlass / Toyota Solara / etc) and this has been the nicest, fun to drive, stylish car I driven. Good power (with the HT version) and comfortable. The power top and automatic boot is wonderful (ever been caught right before a downpour ?) One touch and your back on the road. Add the six disc CD player and power antenna switch (both simple to install by yourself) and this car is ready to have fun.

Favorite Features

Style - lots of compliments on the new dark grey with silver interior. People don't believe it's a Volvo!

Suggested Improvements

Add the power antenna switch as a standard item. Unless you know it's available - your antenna is up even if listening to the CD player. It takes five minutes to install with only one screw to remove. Poor decision not to install at factory. Otherwise - this car is great!!

Well - it's 2014 and I still have the 2003 Volvo C70 Convertible. Believe it or not - it has been in storage for the past 10 years - only to be brought out for eCheck, oil changes and regular maintenance and to put on a few summer miles. It needed new wipers and tires as the old ones had flat spots - but this thing still runs perfectly! I took it to Volvo dealer for a check-up and they couldn't believe how perfect it was. Only 15,700 miles and the paint and interior are pristine! Over time, I kept adding options (car cover, wind screen, reversible trunk mat, remote control for the radio and matching neck pillow - all factory original items). I was going to sell it - but they only want to give me book value and it's worth more than that to me - especially now that they quit making them.
