Grand wedding over, marriage begins

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


I thought I was getting a sporty, luxurious convertible; after 2500 miles, it's just a reliable Swedish 4- seater hardtop convertible; Sporty- car is too heavy & the suspension is like my old man's ‘92 Buick Park Avenue; acceleration- good; cornering not tight; steering- too loose; also, it looks sporty for a Volvo, but come on, consider your baseline; Luxury- nice overall amenities, but there’s room for improvement (see comments below; also, no sunglass case, for $48K?!); Convertible- definitely an attractive European hardtop convertible with a unique 4 seater feature (it won’t be for long– BMW’s version launches in 07); no buyer’s remorse (yet), but I’m not sure I would repeat my choice

Best Features

Convertible hard top; DYNAUDIO option is just AWESOME, like front row seats at a Van Halen concert; simple, elegant, and navigable mid-console panel; minimal blind spots; responsive acceleration; passenger memory seats and mirrors; but no sunglass case in a $48K convertible!!?? COME ON!!

Worst Features

Sub par dash for the price- mint green font?!; too much wind in rear seats with top down; seat leather doesn't breathe/ventilate well, leading to discomfort during extended rides; overly sensitive CD player- shuts down speaker system at high frequencies that are manageable for other car CD players
