2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 2.0 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I spent many hours on the internet and many weeks preparing to buy this car. Our family has a minivan and needs an Accord but this car won me over big time. There are many practical reasons to get a Honda, but the C30 adds so much to my driving experience while maintaining a sense of class that it became a perfect fit. I am 40, but not ready to drive a 40 year old no matter how much "sense" it makes. The C30 has a simple but well built and easy to use interior. The exterior styling is very unique. The T5 mated to the MT is the way to go. Almost got the AT at wife's request but the MT was too fun to drive and brought the car to life even more. Chose the 2.0 for styling and audio reasons.

Best Features

dynaudio stereo rocks. stock stereo is great too. driver seat comfort. aggressive but sophisticated styling. safety technology. power. combo of sporty but comfortable drive. control of custom build feature. Just a great balance of everything: price, comfort, personality, safety, and fun

Worst Features

long reach to grab seatbelt. small hatch entrance for loading. not much else...
