Told first set of tires were just bad tires and replaced at 20 k miles due to excessive cupping. Within 10 k miles back tires cupping again dealer monitored and replaced back tires only after stating they fixed the issue. Volvo would not replace front tires. Told tires on front had at least 20k miles at least on them with plenty of wear left. 3 months after replacing the back, cupping noise back. Dealer stated they did in fact hear and see cupping starting again. Did alignment and asked me to bring back for check in 5k miles. Waited 3k miles 2 months and was just told back tires are fine, no cupping which is discrepancy from 3 months ago and told front tires need replaced. Incredible
I have had this car for 5 years and it has 104k miles.
First off, tires.
This thing eats them.
The best we've done is 20k miles, the worst was 10k.
I've put 6 sets on it, and we have them rotated and realigned every 4k miles.
These have been replaced 4 times so far.
Other replacements include the nav (twice), alternator, motor mounts, suspension (entire thing) and several "fixes" to the top.
The car is driven on regular public roads and we go slow over speed bumps.
The seats have twice now decided to move backwards on their own while I was getting stuff out of the back seat.
On both occasions I was stuck and had to have help to get out.
I bought this car in late July and have had nothing but problems. It has been in the shop for 30 days for to get the roof to stop leaking, and to fix look at the electronic roof system since on it stops for no reason during closing. It only closes half way and then stops. After thirty days, the issues are still not fixed. In addition, we have had issues with the stereo system and the passenger airbag... AGAIN, DON'T BUY THIS CAR. We are looking to pursue the lemon law options to return this car!
We love the C70 but it has been in the shop a number of times due to the top's sensor going off while driving in the rain and when someone is walking behind the car as I back out of a parking space. Basically I have to reset the top by opening and closing it. Not a fun experience in the rain. Another ongoing issue is both right rims seemed to have gone oval for no reason. One rim was even cracked on the interior. The dealership and Volvo USA say they are not responsible. The top rattles, water gets in at the car wash. The battery died which unlocks the car and rolls down the windows. It's a safety feature.
Love the C70-design,ride comfort, power. Agree that displays could be better. Mine however seems to be a noisy car. Maybe because I have not had a convertible in a long time. Heavy sounding rattles have been hard to isolate. Dealer replaced bearings on the struts. Recently seems to be noisy at the roof connections. Would not give it up but am a little disappointed at the noise.
