Great In The Summer — Bought if from a friend - overall happy with it. Back seat is hard to access - front power seats are more of a pain than a help. Handling and speed are great. Would look to move up to new body style.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Good mileage, great looks, easy and fun to drive.  Inexpensive for what it is (and they don't make soft-tops anymore), best safety for a convertible (Roll over protection and Volvo reliability).  

Cons

Poor turning radius, have to have the patience of a saint when moving the seats forward/ backward, often have to take down the hood and use back seat for groceries because the trunk space is limited.

My Favourite Convertible, Hands Down — I really loved this car and would not be selling except that I need 4x4 and more space to cart things around. It was SO smooth it practically drove itself, was understated and elegant, everyone remarked on it (even compared to newer, more 'upmarket' cars), and so much fun with the top up or down. The little luxuries - power-memory-heated seats, assisted parking (makes up for blind spots with hood up), Bose stereo, smooth acceleration - always made me feel pampered. I will miss it a lot.

turning circle rubbish

All Good Bar Turning Circle — only bad point on this car is the crap turning circle. The build quality is excellent the hide compliments the unusual pearlescant colour and the wood trim finishes it nicely. All things considered it is fairly economical and the roof mechanism is far superior to that on my merc sl. all in all recommended

Pros

Fantastic performance for a 5 cylinder (HPT). Great looks, great handling on the road, smooth. Comfortable front seats, never sat in back.

Cons

very poor turning for 'U' turns or parking spaces. FWD has it too tight to turn well in cramped spaces. No storage space compared to US cars. Cannot upgrade radio, only upgrade CD capacity with FM changer.

Beautiful, Fast, Hugs The Road — I bought this car as the third owner. It had 8900 miles on it and was 4 years old. Still under warranty. Not my daily driver until recently. Outstanding performance. Has 30k @ 9yrs old (made in APR 2005). Fantastic quality, love the comfortable front seats. Just an all around great car.

I Love It. — It is gorgeous and it is a very safe car. Definitely a good car to give to a first time driver. The interior is also gorgeous. It is a fun car to drive. It is a very good car overall. The rims are nice as well.

The Poor Little Rich Car — Nice looking car. Poorly designed trunk and interior. Back seats are a pain to get in/out. Top closes easily but I'm holding my breath. Interior leather is not high quality for the price. Volvo bombed out when designing this car and since it's one of the last rag-tops for volvo, they missed an opportunity to shine. My 99 S70 has more going for it than the C70.
