Dream Car was a LEMON!
By pmm on


2001 Volvo C70 LT 2dr Convertible (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


This was my dream car (not). I had it 19 mo. that's all I could take. In the shop 15x's all minor but come on. I had all the issues prev. stated plus a cracked dash that I was told is common in a Volvo (should have been told before I bought) would cost $2300 to fix. The constant rattle noise was so unnerving that I could not relax & drive. Also my SRS light came on 4x in the shop for each till they replaced the air bag.It was a huge sacrifice to buy this so called dream car that leaked from the window seals so bad that my carpet had to be pulled out and the pad replaced. two weeks before I got rid of it I had an oil leak and thermostat go out. I babied this car there is no excuse for such a rip-off

Best Features

Powerful engine. beautiful appearance.back seat for kids. before dash cracked highway drive was awesome do not buy if you drive in a city like New Orleans. Great sound system.Love the fully auto conv. top no getting out to secure it.

Worst Features

needs to be drivable everywhere not just smooth highway. Dash should not crack.needs better cup holders and should be in back also. seals for windows should not chronically leak.fix poor visibility through rear and huge blind spots
