2010 Volvo C70 T5 2dr Convertible (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


From its Pinifarina inspired design to its Volvo safety and solidity; this is a great car.
After 5 months it is still free of squeaks and rattles.
Road and wind noise are minimal at top-up speeds up to 85 mph and top-down up to 65 mph.
I average 21 mpg at 25 mph and 26 mpg at 65 mph.
The Edmunds review software forced me to select a Manual transmission; it only comes in automatic but the transmission works great.

Best Features

I particularly like the blind-spot warning system, the curve-following headlights and the folding rear-view mirrors. The Bridge of Weir leather seats are very comfortable. Operation of the top is a mechanical ballet which friends have asked to see more than once. Friends have also commented on its eye-grabbing appearance.

Worst Features

Living in Florida I would like the option of cooled seats along with the current heated option. I also wish that the windows would follow the top; l.e., top up, windows up; top down, windows down. Currently the default position is windows up. I would also like a retractable radio antenna.
