"I have a 1998 Volvo C70. I have had its since 2000. To this day, I get many compliments on my car and people hardly belïeve its a 98! Its a true diamond in the ruff because you dont see these vehicles often in the streets. My "Vivvy" has never let me down..."My Volvo, how Swede it is!"
"My Saab 93 convertible was totaled in an accident so I went back to Volvo. I bought my C70 with 146k on it. It still rides like dream, fast, smooth and awesome brakes! With the top down the noise level is much quieter than my Saab. Top up the noise is very loud from the roof. Also, I hate the turning radius... its enormous. You need also 2.5 lanes to do a U turn.
The coolest part is refueling, I get at least compliment at every gas station at how good it looks."
"Bought March 09 with 85K miles. Very reasonably priced for a luxury car. Only repairs so far have been new brakes and rotors and new tires. With the top up it's just another Volvo, but top down on a sunny day is pure heaven. Very powerful for a 5 cyl. engine. 5 spd auto is very smooth shifting. Awesome sounding stereo. Great boulevard and highway cruiser. I have rediscovered the joy of pleasure driving. Highly recommended."
"I love this car, comfortable, fast, and a real looker. I have owned it for 3 yrs just replacing tires and brakes and regular oil changes. It is very comfortable on long trips and gets 27 mpg on highway the computer says the overall mileage is 24 mpg.
Dislikes: turning radius, sunroof water drain noise when raining."
