VOLVO is the best

by Gel from Montreal. Qc on Tue Apr 19 2016

VOLVO are great cars. I have S40 2001, S70 GLT 1998, S60 2003 AWD, S60 T5. The whole family is driving Volvo. A tank made for harsh Canadian winter. Reliable and comfortable machine.

C70 Ragtop

by KSagal from Boston Suburbs on Sat May 15 2010

Bought the car used, and have not had so much fun and been so happy with a car since I was a kid... It runs well, handles itself well, and has great seats. Creature comforts, and features (like all window at once buttons) are great. My only complaint, and it is very easy to deal with, is that the turning radius is huge, more like a truck than car. That is actually the only complaint I have at all! I love the car, and would recommend to friends, and will buy another.

99 Volvo C70...Poor value...poor bulld!

by Jackw13820 from Seattle on Sun Feb 05 2017

My Volvo c70 always had quirks. At 90k the front end made thunks and bangs...At 95k the axles and bearings were shot. Interior pieces were like you'd expect from a Yugo and the fit and finish were not up to Volvo standards. I owned 240's and 740 Volvo's. The c70 was not in the same league...And to think they were $40k new.....I think Volvo sold the company a year later for a good reason..... Advice....If you can get a low mile example for $1500....take a chance. Not a real Volvo...

Our Take on the 1999 Volvo C70

It took Volvo more than four decades to produce a softtop. Judging from a recent test drive of the C70 convertible, the Swedish automaker, now a subsidiary of Ford Motor Co., should have spent a few more years perfecting the design.

In its $40,000-plus price bracket, the C70 has few rivals. Among them are the Saab 9-3, the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-Benz CLK320. But all three, for one reason or another, are more desirable than the Volvo.

Our test car had a window sticker of $47,365, yet didn't look or feel like a car that should cost that much. Our biggest compliment: The C70's safety features are among the best in class.

He: We've seen very few C70 convertibles on the road since the car was... Read More
