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.
design in & out HT has guts off the line (for a volvo) stereo fantastic & loud safty of roll bar was BIG selling point
