doesn't jerk like other turbos i have driven. quiet. even with lumbar support, seats are too curved for my straight back. would be perfect if head support was adjustable. would prefer larger doors. i have the semi-luxury model. would rather have a few more buttons instead of manual cranks, like the lumbar support and steering adjust. these are not enough to keep me from loving this car even tho i am still adjusting from having a mark viii for 15 years. hard top convertible is fabulous. exterior is pretty much like most cars of it's size/style.

I chose my 2009 C70 over 4 passenger convertibles from Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Lexus, and Mercedes. Very happy with my choice. The BMW 135i is faster, but I have nowhere to legally use its speed. MB has prestige, but I did not want to pay for that. The Volvo is my daily driver and perfect for my actual lifestyle. Very comfortable interior, strong engine, corners flat, room for humans in the back, big usable trunk with the top up, quiet with top down. Lots of praise for looks and smooth ride.

Best Hardtop on the market for the money

Just purchased brand new 2009 loaded with the safe and sound package. Shopped against the Inifiti G37 convertible and while the Infiniti is certainly the sexier car, the Volvo is hands down a better value and blows the Infiniti way on trunk space. The backseat(s) on the Volvo is also useable whereas the Infiniti seats could not possibly accommodate an adult of any size. Have put 500 trouble free miles on the car and have throroughly enjoyed every minute. Getting 23 MPG mixed driving on regular octane fuel. I'm guessing mileage will get even better once the engine breaks in a bit. The Dynaudio upgraded stereo system is incredible and worth every penny. Even with the top down at 70 MPH, the system sounds awesome. I never expected a Volvo to have such a nice sound system. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a four season convertible.

Be sure to get Premium Stereo

by from Clarion,Pa on January 13, 2009

Great car if you get the Premium Sound. Factory Stereo dissapointing. Drives like the Low Turbo. I miss the High Turbo. No Ashtrays? If I had the stereo I would be 100% Happy.

Purchased when 8 months old, I wanted a drop top for the Ca experience, but the security and quietness of the hard top for longer journeys. Not disapointed at all. Great for around town and the CPH when you have to GO and get your hair blown. Adequate turn of speed, good (front wheel drive) road holding and 40 to 70 great for overtaking. Very reliable, No breakages/leaks or other nasties after 2 years. 25 MPH in town, 28- 30 on a good run with regular gas. Lots of nice comments about looks and the kids think its a"transformer" when the roof comes down. great enjoyable fun car with serioous side benefits.

I have only had the car for about 24 hours but am very pleased with the full package. Stereo system is amazing and brings a whole new level of sound to the music. The nav is intuitive. I was able to get it working and functional within a short period of time. The driving is lots of fun and I am having a great time. The kids have called the car Jazz after the convertible transformer because of the way it changes from the hard top coupe to the convertible. It REALLY becomes two different cars.

This car is exactly what I wanted. I've had Saabs for over 10 years and this is a definite step up. Love the roomy trunk and the ability to use it even with the hardtop down. I miss my heated seats but it didn't come with my car, though it is an option. My partner has an older C-30 and is eager to get his own C-70 when it's time to upgrade.
