Did much pre-lease research. Bad mech
reviews here made me cautious. Also
consid A4,BMW3,Saab9-3,CLK. Volvo won
out on uniqueness, size(big rear
seat),and price. Great luxury cruiser
Well worth it to get the Touring pkg
(wood upgrades) and added cost wood
wheel. Skip extra cost audio and
Propus wheels(2x$1000)and the LPT
comes in under $40K if you negotiate.
Very smooth driving car. Did 300 mi
round trip and looked forward to it.
28mpg at 70-80mph and smoooooth. Seats
It's all about the top, and the top
down look of this C70 is great. 3pos
memory seats with heat are very
comfortable. Huge rear seat leads
Seat operation to move fronts forward
to get into back is slow(as expected
from these reviews). No CD storage
except in glove comp. Casual starts
from a standstill leaves
tranny 'hunting' between gears 1 and 2
Aggressive accel erases this prob.
