I purchased this car used, with only 2070 miles on it! The car is a pleasure to drive, very sporty looking, and gets great gas mileage (32.3 MPG highway. The quality of the build is typical Volvo, everything fits as it should, and solid as a rock.

I have owned both the 02/LT and the current 2004/HT C70. The 2002 had a "bad" rattle in the back right 1/4 panel and after Volvo could not fix it I traded it in for the 2004. both cars ran well and I love the HT and the mileage is equal to the LT. We get compliments daily and I drive the car 12 months in New England. don't like the CD changer or the difficult method to move the seats up to let a person in the back. Great "empty nester car" and long trips are like sitting in a lounge chair at home.

I traded in a Chevy Trailblazer and this Volvo is absolutely a dream to drive. The only problem I have with it is the inability of the CD player to go from 1 disc to another without having to eject and press the next track. I also miss the controls on the steering wheel. I've had dozens of compliments and the car is only 3 months old! Love this car!!

C-70HPT offers a fun drive in a comfortable 4-passenger vehicle. I agree with a review I read, that it has a tendency to torque steer when you REALLY rip on it, but you quickly learn to accomodate. The UP side is that when you shower down, it responds admirably. I traded to it from a BMW Roadster and even though my C-70 isn't quite as much fun, it's a superior road car. My husband says, it offers a very civilized convertible experience especially with the optional wind screen. Internal noise is minimal with the top up or down allowing you to enjoy the awesome optional stereo system. 17" allow wheels and low profile tires are sleek, but the soft wheels damage easily and the trunk is small.
