2007 Volvo C70 User Reviews
- All around a great car smooth ride very quiet,even with the top down
- only thing i dislike is the console and door panels do not have enough storage space
this car is wonderful.my wife loves the ease of being able to put the top down at the touch of a button.It gets awesome fuel mileage.i have always had vehicles with a v-8 for power and performance but this little 5 cylinder will scoot.it is very quiet with the top down and has very little wind noise.the the rear wind deflector does its job.the car looks as awesome with the top up as it does down.the fit and finish are flawless....read morehide

- Styling, comfortable front seats, audio system, handling
- major engineering problems, fuel economy
I bought the 2006 in April of '06 and it had engineering flaws from the beginning. It was in and out of the shop so much that Volvo decided to replace it for me with a 2007 model. So far, so good. I love the look of the car and it handles beautifully. The back seat is a bit hard to get in and out of but, if you have the top down it's much easier. The audio system is amazing! I love the navigation and the 18 inch wheels also. If your going to be driving in the snow however, I would recommend all season tires. The tread on the 18 inch wheels tend to wear out faster than most and kind of expensive to replace. Make sure you rotate the tires! That will help them last longer....read morehide

- Smooth ride, Great Sound System, Quiet with top up or down,Comfortable seats,Inside lockable storage
- Back seat is difficult to get in. Steering wheel a bit thick to grip for ladies.
The retractable hard top is the best of both worlds. It's like having a real life size transformer! When I am cruising on the freeway with the top down, there's very little noise and the ride is smooth and comfortable. The Dynoaudio sound system is fantastic! When you drop the top, this car gets a lot of looks. People are truly impressed with the design and technology of the retractable hardtop. The trunk is spacious with the top up. This is a great car for a couple with grown children or a single person. When I am driving it, I have the feeling of both luxury and a sports car. My car has been described as a very "sexy car" and that is a perfect visual description!...read morehide

- Great car for poor weather. great looks and performance
A GREAT CAR FOR POOR WEATHER. ESPECIALLY SNOW. GREAT PERFORMANCE, BUT ACCELARATION NEEDS A BIT OF WORK. IT IS A GREAT LOOKING CAR. SUSPENSION IS PRETTY GOOD AND HANDLING IS GOOD AS WELL.

- Excellent legroom, killer sound system, retractable top is very James Bond
- Back seat is virtually useless, no spare tire, mediocre MPG in city
I've had my C70 for about four months and overall I'm very pleased. But like in a marriage, sometimes the little things tend to become more annoying over time. So here are my little complaints: forget about putting adults in the back seat, especially if the driver/front passenger is over 6ft tall. The car does not come with a spare tire due to truck constraints - instead you get a sealant kit and small air pump, which is no help if you experience a blowout. When I parallel park in the city and tuck in the mirrors, they lose their settings and I have to readjust them. I have been averaging about 17MPG in mostly city driving, and I don't normally punch the accelerator when I drive. OK, so now that's out of the way, here are all the good things: the retractable top works great and is a real head-turner. With the top up, the car looks like a Volvo but with the top down it looks like an exotic sports coupe (at least in my opinion.) The headroom and legroom is excellent - I'm 6'2" and don't even have the driver seat all the way back. The seats are some of the most comfortable I've ever sat in. If you decide to buy, definitely invest in the Dynaudio stereo upgrate. It's absolutely spectacular and worth every penny. By the way, a business associate in Denver has the same car with the optional 18" performance wheels and rims and he has a lot of trouble in the snow. So if you live somewhere where it snows I would recommend the standard all-season tires. Overall this is a very nice car for a single person or couple with no kids, or as a second car. I've had no mechanical problems so far and the car is very comfortable. I only gave it three stars on value since you're not going to get a deal - I had to wait about 5 months for my C70....read morehide

- Great looking car, incredible sound system
- Terrible Mileage in City, roof leaking, too heavy, not easy to get in or out of the backseat
I have to wait months for this car so do not expect a deal from the dealer. It is a great looking car both as a coupe and a convertible. Watching the top going down and up is quite a show and a marvel of engineering. The best of both worlds. The sound system is the best I have heard in a car. Compared to My Miata, wind noise is tolerable when the top is down and not as windy. Mileage in City is disappointing to say the least. Experienced some water leaks under heavy rain - from side windows. It helps to be an acrobat to be able to get in and out of the backseat. Plenty of trunk space with the top up. With the top down...the golf clubs go on the backseat The local dealership (Richmond BC) is top notch. Great service....read morehide

- I am very happy with my C70. Handling, comfort, and audio are tremendous. Everyone likes styling
- Hard for adults to get in back seat because of front seat belt. Reason for 4 stars
People continue to look at this car because of the styling especially with top down. Very little road noise with the top down. Handling with top down is better than any convertible that I have ever driven. I have had C 70(2006) for 6 months with no mechanical problems. Getting better mpg than advertised. Fuel tank is smaller than I am use too, but will get use to that....read morehide

- love the look of the car - rides great
- electrical problems
After waiting to get the car, i have had problems with the windows and electrical system. I have the car since May 06 and the car has been in service over 35 days so far and they still have it at this time. They are supposed to replace the entire wire harness, however they are on national backorder. When i have the car, I really love it....read morehide

- Instant power, good fuel efficiency, great ride and handling and not too many on the road
- Volvo reputation is endurance but poor ride - makes this car a sleeper
very comfortable - responsive ride and the car looks great. Resale value is a plus. I owned a 2002 and it hardly ever needed any maintance beyond standard service.
