2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 1.0 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


This is the best car I have ever owned (13 over 42 years of driving). Purchased by C30 in May 2007 - still love getting into it every morning to drive to work. Excellent gas mileage on the highway with the T5 and 6-speed manual - less so in the city. Very comfortable for me (5'10") but my wife (5'4") doesn't find it all that comfortable. As she says, Volvo makes their cars for tall Vikings. Handles very well on ice and snow. Many compliments on its design from other drivers.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Good visibility. Great handling. My Volvo dealer is superb - had an ice-build-up in a wheel well one time, and dealer not only got the ice out, had the car washed and didn't charge me a dime.

Worst Features

More resistant seat material - marks easily. Back window gets dirty quickly due to air flow.
