Well built speed machine!
By Good Job Volvo on


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


I have owned this car for 8000 miles now. I wanted to get in some seat time and see how the car would responed to my new born daughter and her car seat before I write a review. Volvo has indeed out done itself. From the ordering process to the driving experience(minus the build time). I was hooked the second I jumped in and cranked the key. My wife and I were worried about our daughters car seat. We have a Graco rear facing seat with the quick release base. I have only two complaints about this. One, is that you have to move the seat forward in order for it to fit. Luckily for my wife she is small. The second is locking of the seat after I put the car seat in or out of the car

Best Features

T5 engine, interior/exterior, build quility, dynaudio (best stock system to date), looks, can install trip computer after car is built, aux jack

Worst Features

Wipers leave water on the windshield going above 60MPH, Tires although really sticky they give off alot of road noise, Non-powered seats do not lock forward, so when you are on a hill they slide back. Bluetooth not standard! IPOD control expensive
