Love It — The car is great. Being a convertible though the interior and certain parts crack and break. The pep is there and the options were good for a 1998. Sound system is amazing. Have had issues with the top and the emmisions.

Comfortable, spacious, fast.

Cons

Old man image.

Volvo — A little bit of an old man's car. But comfortable, cream leather, 2.4 T5, coupe. Steep on insurance again as another group 16. Economical as this was a dual fuel conversion. Would definitely consider another due to the comfort and reliability.

Good Volvo — This car is really nice, although it wasn't what i had always dreamed of owning. Since I've had it though, it's been great, and the cost was not bad at all. Overall it's good if you ask me. I am glad I decided to get it.

Poor Mans Xk — Build quality? Its a Volvo for god sake and at 38k when new, has all the lovley creature comforts. Heavy is a downside but in the sport mode crouches down and goes off like a scolded dog. I like the coupe looks and if you wince enough looks a little like the Jag XK. Repairs have totalled 2 light bulbs and plastic suspension dooberry.

Wonderful — I love it! The most wonderful car in world, WHY? IT'S A VOLVO! I don't know what more to write. 60/40mm lowersprings and 18" Atlantis rims from Volvo XC90. Custom painted interior by myself. Headlights from a newer C70 (2003). Why do I need 50 words, why? Automatic 4 speed with winter/economy and sport. 2.5T with turbo, low pressure turbo.

It's a good fast car with more than adequate handling. It's however, quite heavy, and has a big turn radius and since it's equipped with a turbo that has some lag, you have to be careful around corner... Read More
