2002 Volvo C70 HT 2dr Coupe (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Engine was sound and performed exceptional, however she was put down in June of 2008. I my wife & two kids traveled the 405 south bound in the carpool lane. A diesel trucks tire traveling north bound became dislodged (rim included). Now airborne crossed several lanes headed for opposing traffic with exact aim at my windshield. Not being able to move left or right I pushed the accelerator praying the tire would miss the car. No luck! Striking the roof of the car and crashing into the cabin before bouncing off. Insurance company declared the car a total loss. My wife, two kids, and I walked away without a scratch. With superb safety/build qualities 4 souls were saved by Volvo

Best Features

Interior styling, Dolby Digital Prologic, exterior styling. Handling & the 236hp turbo engine is an understatement, once turbo kicked felt like 300hp

Worst Features

2002 model could have used as a factory option a sport suspension & and navigation, along with steering wheel controls for the radio. An better cupholders.
