"I purchased the car used with 36,000 miles and had no troubles until last summer when the car overheated and had to get a head gasket repair and recently the tranny has started to slip, Love the car and will be keeping it but will be getting a second car. Cheap interior but overall fun and very fast."
Pros: "great handling, fun to drive, responsive, reliability"
Cons: "poor cup holder design"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"The engine runs very smoothly and gives a sense of powerful revs. Frankly, I think the first generation C70 convertible is a much better buy, particularly when comparing to the Volvo's second-generation C70 which is heavier and slower. The car turns heads when I drove down the street to see my pals. Although the Volvo dealer charge an ram and leg for the routine maintenance, nonethelss, I found a good mechanic at the Shoreline's Cornerstone auto services and it only costed me half of the costs comparing to the dealer's. It really brings down the car maintenance expenses significantly if you know a good service guy."
