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


I haven't had this much fun with a car since I traded in my '72 Volvo 144 for a 1982 Rabbit. Acceleration in 3rd gear pushes me back in the seat and I'm practically giggling when I have the excuse to lean on the gas to merge onto the highway. Once there, it's incredibly quiet, 6th gear keeps the revs down, and handling is reliable and predictable. I got the non-sports (1.0) model and the ride is very comfy. This car is great. It's got the original tires which aren't great in snow, but they're not bad either. Mileage depends on how you drive (duh). I can push it some and still get the 20 mpg the EPA promises. I've only had it for 1000 miles; I'm infatuated.

Best Features

Love the aux stereo/iPod connector in the armrest, and the floating dash. Overseas delivery was a great experience.

Worst Features

There should be a power connector in the armrest along with the audio, for those of us with washed-up batteries in our ancient iPods.
