Volvo C70 Convertible — 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 corners. Parts of this car tend to be a bit expensive and the check engine light comes on way too often than you'd like. If you don't have deep pockets, you might not want to own this car. It's however, very comfortable and definitely a luxury car. With the top down, very few car can beat it for it's impressive looks. It has a turbo that has a bit of lag. This, combined with the huge turn radius, means you've got to be careful while driving this car. Once you get to know the car and drive it within it's limits, it's about PERFECT.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The looks, especially with the top down.
Powerful car, after you fix the recalls on it. It was real slow before the recalls and then it behaved like a sports car after the recall on the EMS was fixed

Cons: Can't think of any. If you are driving a volvo, it's because you can afford the car and can afford the maintenance costs that come from owning a luxury convertible coupe.
