after a year some issues
By jasper on


2009 Volvo C30 T5 R-Design 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Just over a year with low mileage, ~12000. R-Design has great styling. The dash is a bit bland and more color could be added in the dash console lighting. Gas mileage is not quite what I expected, (6 speed manual) ranges from 31 to 21 (depends on time of year and how I drive). The front end on the RDesign is also poorly engineered. There is nothing you can do to prevent scraping when going up small upgrades (my driveway for example). This causes the rubber on the underside to hang down, quite an eyesore.

Best Features

Exterior design, blue tooth

Worst Features

Recently experienced some quality issues making for a week long visit to the dealer. The lower lumbar support broke on the driver side. The main air handler had to be replaced (requiring the removal of the dashboard) and rear window replaced due to defroster issues. hope the problems don't persist
