New C30 is having many issues
By davido on


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


Decided to trade my 2006 S40 for a new C30. Since I've had the car, the passenger airbag light shows that the airbag is not on sometimes when passengers sit there. The first time I was told nothing was wrong with it, but it surfaced again. At the same time I noticed an oil leak in my garage. The car has 500 miles on it, and I wish I had the one with 85,000 that I traded in. This time, they told me that the airbag issue was a software upgrade problem (not sure why they didn't do this before delivering to me or last time it was in). Oil is from the oil cooler.

Best Features

Hard to say. Seems like I'll forget what my car looks like before I get it back. It's comfortable and I like the keyless drive, but other than that I haven't been able to drive it much.

Worst Features

Not sure...reliability? I've only had the car in my possession 8 out of 21 days so far, and it's still in the shop. Today they decided it was the turbo drain plug after replacing the oil cooler.
