COMFORTABLE 4 SEAT CONVERTIBLE
Pros: seats and overall appearance
Cons: sticky window op buttons, slow roof opening/closingExcellent value elegant and most comfortable which in spite of its age still turns heads. The reliability and feeling of safety is 'VOLVO' The only problem are sticky window winder switches and steering, which needs frequent lubrication. The power roof is very slow, compared with peer group.
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.
