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


After owning a Ford Focus and a Pontiac Vibe, this is by the best hatchback I have owned. I fell instantly in love with the unique design the moment I saw at an auto show. Anyone who loves attention will love this car, I couldn't count how many times people stop me to ask me about my car plus the looks, stares, and pointing. I've only had one issue so far. The shifter would bind up, but it was covered by warranty and its been smooth ever since. Acceleration is great, handling is superb, interior is simple and comfortable, MPG is nothing too spectacular but still good. Also, it handles decently in the snow, but in SE PA we never really get that much snow anyway.

Best Features

The turbo, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (Volvo's is actually worth it), heated seats (once you have them you never go back), stability control, aux jack for iPod

Worst Features

Wish it had available AWD, easier entry to the back seats, suicide doors or for 4 doors, wish the gauges were more sporty.
