This Car Relaxes Me
By miabchdave on


2009 Volvo C70 T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


This car will make you want to cruise, listen to good music, and enjoy the scenery. I find it very comfy. The trunk room and rear seats have no other competition in the hard top convertible space. The interior storage is definitely adequate. Those three main reasons are why I went with the C70 over the BMW 328i hardtop even though the lease on the BMW worked out to be $10 cheaper a month. It's simply a more 'usable' car... it's even rated to tow! The car does have some oddities that need to be addressed, though. See below.

Best Features

Radio, comfy seat, room for 4... really... if you have friends... this is the only choice so far, Turbo provides good acceleration once the auto finds its gear. If you're into it, looks are VERY good... no bad angles (lots of thumbs up and I just got it). Buttery smooth.

Worst Features

Break pedal is too close to the accelerator. Do they have narrow feet in Scandinavia? This is almost a safety hazard as the edge of your shoe can get stuck under the break pedal when lifting off the accelerator... BAD for quick stops. Power in center console needed. Flapping rear belts in wind.
