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


I purchased this car the minute it came out in October. I have put 17,000 miles on the car and have driven it across country 3 times. I was disappointed that cruise control was not standard but I added it for 250 dollars after my first cross country trip. It has been extremely reliable and handles beautifully. It handles mountain roads smoothly and never loses acceleration no matter what the grade is. It is extremely comfortable and spacious and I have sat in it for 12 hours at a time. It also has amazing cargo capacity once seats are folded down. My only problem is that ulphostery beneath the glove compartment did come undone but it was easily repaired.

Best Features

Console, stereo system, heated seats

Worst Features

Cruise control should be a standard feature.
