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


I've had a Volvo for 5 yrs so I thought a C30 was the way to go when replacing my other car. Oh was I wrong. In the 1st 200 miles, my passenger air bag was not working (pregnant wife refuses to ride in my new car now). The service depat. told me that they couldn't fit it in on a Saturday...too many more important oil changes I suppose.The dealer kept it for 3 days, and now the problem seems to have resolved itself. This morning (mile 500) I have an oil leak under my car. I'm seeing that quality and safety are no longer top priorities with Volvo. Time to take it back again...more time off from work. Wish they would give me back my working trade-in so I could go elsewhere.

Best Features

Keyless drive, (I might have others if I was able to drive it more)

Worst Features

Better focus of quality/safety of deliverable vehicles. Delivered initially with passenger airbag not working.
