1999 Volvo C70 LT Turbo 2dr Convertible


This car is surprisingly nimble for a
convertable, but the cowl has a
noticable shimmy when going over
uneven surfaces. Had to replace the
upper engine mount (some $60 in parts
and my own labor) which really helped
isloate the engine noise. The 60k
service was a real killer (love those
Volvo parts prices), but the biggest
expense I had while owning this car was
the electronic throttle body. It
developed a dead spot right in the
cruise position and would cause the
computer to make the car surge ahead or
slow down - as though it can't see the
throttle and moves it wide open then
completly closed. That cost me a cool
1k but the car drives much better now.

Best Features

Love the theater lighting and the Dolby Pro-logic stereo. The looks are first- rate and I constantly get comments on what a great looking car I have!

Worst Features

Fix the integrity of the interior hardware. Normal wear items in the interior (steering wheel) wear abnormally quickly and you have to replace the whole thing. The power top motor cover on the roof likes to come off when closing the roof (I end up with the cover on my lap).
