Review of the 2004 Volvo C70

  • The first "out of the box" Volvo is showing its age, but with its abundance of safety features, comfortable digs and a smooth ride, it's still an appealing luxury convertible.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Luxurious interior, plenty of safety and comfort features, smooth ride, turbocharged engines.

  • Cons

    Adding options quickly boosts the price, suspension isn't tuned for sporty handling, prone to torque steer during hard acceleration.

Tranny issues plague c70

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Volvo C70 LPT 2dr Convertible (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I bought my 2004 in 2005 and love the look with the top down. The main thing to watch out for is the transmission!!! At 90,000 miles it began to slip and by 120,000 I had to have it rebuilt to the tune of $3500. Since having this work done I've not had any additional issues but was sorely disappointed in this Volvo as I've owned 6 and this one just pooped out. Another thing to watch is to never drive up too close to a parking curb!!! The bumper is so flexible and low to the ground as to let the car easily run up. Due to the shape it will literally rip off when you back up. This has happened to me 2x and I swear I'm not being as stupid as this sounds.

What can I possibly say about my "C70~Gal"; we met at the Volvo Factory Gothenburg... I was in Europe on business. But, prior to going their i was at the La Car Show were I saw this model on display. Their I said I have to have one; the sales gal who was from Sweden invited me to the factory. Once at the factory I got the grand tour and told them I was going to be in Europe on business from a few months. So, I purchased the car drove it all over Europe, and into Africa. A week before leaving back to Calif., the factory took care of the smog and between us we added a whole bunch of options that you would have not gotten here in the USA. To this day I am still in a State of total Aw! TY Volvo

This car had been in an accident and had a salvage title, price right, but some concern because of that. However, once I put new tires and new engine mounts on the car (they had deteriorated in hot Florida weather) this car runs like new and is a pleasure to drive. Good pickup, great fun on an open winding road with the top down.

My C70 2004 soft top does not close properly. Something is out of sync. When the top raises from trunk (to close), I hear a loud snap, then, metal steel locking devices come forward before top closes...

Thank you kind folks for your replies. Some apparently regular contributor, a Klaus fellow, has also suggested that 2004 C70 lenses are clear, and will fit my dear Beast. I will look into both. The...
