2007 Volvo C70 T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

My 6 month old C70 has been in the shop twice because of roof rattles, roof still rattles. Volvo just sent out a "Campaign Notice", recall? Another trip to the dealer! After a minor fender bender, repairs took 2 months, primarily due to parts being on "national backorder". One came in a mislabeled carton, it took an additional week until the right part came from Sweden. A week later, the roof and trunk stuck half way open necessitating an emergency tow and more shop time! Apparently few techs are trained to work on the C70. Volvo is not supporting this car with parts inventory/tech training. Some customer service reps were surprisingly rude. Not what you'd expect from Volvo, a disappointment.


Best Features

This is a fun driving car when you can drive it, better have a spare! On a beach trip, there was room for luggage with the top down. It's an attention grabber, you can't be inconspicuous in it! This could be a great car, if Volvo works out the kinks.


Worst Features

Get the roof electronics and mechanics ironed out! Brake and gas pedals are dangerously close together. Brake and accelerator do not engage as quickly as on other most other cars. Access to back seats requires gymnastics ability due to front seat adjustments and seat belts.

Review

I have had nothing but trouble with this car. It began at about 3,000 miles with a new fuel injector, gas tank & line, then moved on to strange noises upon starting, broken button on seat, first the passenger window quit working, now the driver window won't stay closed. I have had it in the shop 5 times for 8 problems. I am in the process of trying to sell them back this car.

Review

This is my second Volvo C70. I really enjoy the hardtop and the Dynaudio system. I have had to bring the car back to the dealer numerous times for the same two issues. The front windows were not going all the way up when the doors closed. It took five tries before they fixed this issue. The other issue is the full spare tire. Every time I hit a bump of any type in the road the tires rattles around in the trunk. Volvo has looked at this issue at least 5 times and still can't figure out a way to stop it. They are looking into a foam base for it to sit on. They believe it might be a recall issue down the road.


Best Features

Hardtop and Dynaudio system.


Worst Features

Allow the passengers in the rear seats the ability to open their own windows.

Review

Simply a wonderful automobile... sedan by rainy day, dream car by sunny day! We love our '07 Volvo C70! Nice lines, better looking with the top down. It's an awesome car to drive. Compared it to the VW EOS and thought we would save money by getting the EOS. One drive in the C70, DynaSound, Premium Package and we were both sold! She loves it. I can't drive it enough! Moved from an S80 to the C70 and love the car. Get one!


Best Features

DynaSound, MP3 auxiliary input for the iPod & Bi Xenons!


Worst Features

Auto lumbar support, a bit larger storage areas in the doors (can't fit much in the space).

Review

The car is very comfortable and well constructed. The stereo system is amazing. The convertible top is ingenious. The fit and finish of the vehicle is outstanding. Styling is sleek and mature. The engine power could be classified as peppy. Interior and exterior design is distinctive and elegant.


Best Features

Convertible top, stereo and interior design.


Worst Features

Slight problem with wind noise. One rattle.
