My 6 month old C70 has been in the shop twice because of roof rattles, roof still rattles. Volvo just sent out a "Campaign Notice", recall? Another trip to the dealer! After a minor fender bender, repairs took 2 months, primarily due to parts being on "national backorder". One came in a mislabeled carton, it took an additional week until the right part came from Sweden. A week later, the roof and trunk stuck half way open necessitating an emergency tow and more shop time! Apparently few techs are trained to work on the C70. Volvo is not supporting this car with parts inventory/tech training. Some customer service reps were surprisingly rude. Not what you'd expect from Volvo, a disappointment.
This is a fun driving car when you can drive it, better have a spare! On a beach trip, there was room for luggage with the top down. It's an attention grabber, you can't be inconspicuous in it! This could be a great car, if Volvo works out the kinks.
Get the roof electronics and mechanics ironed out! Brake and gas pedals are dangerously close together. Brake and accelerator do not engage as quickly as on other most other cars. Access to back seats requires gymnastics ability due to front seat adjustments and seat belts.
