Pros: the seating is the most comfortable i have ever owned
Cons: body shake/low front spoiler
Advice: if you want to cruise in style look at the c70i wanted a convertible with style and the most room available. the c70 fills the bill completly. the other europeans; bmw, saab and vw are all smaller. the others of the same size, toyota and chrysler, do not have the style of the volvo. also i expect the new c70 to be much smaller, considering it is based on the 40/50 platform. the only problem with the volvo is the body shake on anything other than glass smooth roads. the toyota and the chrysler were no better though. the front seat comfort is the best of any auto i have owned. the standard stereo is also very good with swe dish dynaudio speakers. this is the first 'premium' auto i have owned.
Pros: The entire car
Cons: A heavy body lean in high speed turns.
Advice: Get the upgraded sound system, It is amazing!With the new C70, Volvo has abandonned the whole boxy look and accepted the sports car look; And they dont stop there. The C70's performance matches its looks. Sporting a 236 Hp, 2.3-L high pressure turbo-charged engine, or a 2.4-L 190 hp low-pressure, turbo-charged engine, this volvo is not your grandmothers car anymore. It performs well driving to school or going a thousand miles an hour down the free-way. The C70 I purchased came with an upgraded sound system, and I must say, it blows all others away. Many of the aftermarket sound systems don't even stand a chance. Well I believe I have said enough, but one last thing: I would recomend that you purchase this car.
