2001 Volvo C70 HT 2dr Convertible (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


I looked long and hard for this car.
It took over 3 months of searching to
find a 5 speed in the HPT. It was well
worth the wait. Handling is
phenomenal. A joy to drive on a
winding country road. The pick up is
great. First gear to about 15 mph.
Shift into second, hit the gas and the
turbo kicks in to push you back in your
seat. Even at highway speeds there is
plenty of power left for a quick
acceleration to pass or avoid another
car or just for the fun of it. The
C70 is traditional Volvo quality and
sturdiness. Even with hard driving I
am able to mainatian gas mileage of
20.7 MPG. My recommendation is go out
and get one now.

Best Features

Wind/road noise is quite reasonable when the top is up. The fully automatic convertibile top works flawlessly with no levers to hook or unhook, just push one button. The body styling is classic volvo with curves that definitely make for a sexy look to the car.
