1999 Volvo C70 LT Turbo 2dr Convertible


For four years, this was the car I sought; it was my dream car. Owning it can only be summed up in one word: FORD..Fix Or Repair Daily. And of course, every repair, no matter how small was excessively expensive; example, the cost to replace the light bulb which illuminates the automatic transmission selector panel is $85. In addition to having never needed this done in even an Americam car, to replace this bulb required that the back seat, console, and gear selector be removed to access the bulb.

Best Features

The car has a very comfortable ride.

Worst Features

Either make a quality electronic throttle or return to the old fashioned dependable linkage. The doors and windows have been sub-contracted to another manufactor, are cheaply made, and consistently go out of alignment or stop working correctly. The convertible top wears holes in itself.
