2004 Volvo C70 HPT 2dr Convertible (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


purchased Nov, 03. 500 miles, power
steering failed. 1800 miles, new Rack
installed in Car. transmission began
clunking between 10 and 20 mph .

Volvo N. America looked at the car.
Agreed to everything during the proof
drive then denied it after they got off
the phone with Volvo
legal, per a Friend at
the dealer. C70 platform is CRAP.
Tranny by Mitsubishi per Volvo,
tolerance issues at transaxles and
hubs, known to Volvo. END: Volvo
Corporate told me "too Bad" and "we'll
see you in court" if I didn't like it.
its sounds weird? it Was! don't buy
any C70 or Volvo , car flagged 2 weeks
prior with a steering problem Volvo
sold it anyway

Best Features

The body design

Worst Features

Rack and pinion in C70 is very suspect as is transmission. Volvo Corporate needs to put customers first as they have lost me as a customer for life and probably anyone I talk to about the Volvo product line.
