Volvo C30 - Very Reliable Car — This car has been trouble free from the time we got the car. Not issues with the car. it handles really well and has plenty of power for a small car with the turbo 5 cylinder engine. With the rear seats folded down you have plenty of storage space. Easy on gas.

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

Pros: Great handling car.  Lots of room for a small car.  Lots of power for the price.  Always gets peoples attention.  Fit and finish very good.

Cons: Back seats are small for adults.

No Regrets! — Nothing to dislike. Wish I got the fog light set. Acceleration , braking, and handling are amazing. Never needed any repairs since I got it. You hear an engine hum because of the turbo. Gas Mileage is the downfall, since I only get about 200 Miles per tank (12 gallons

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sey, fast, the only good looking volvo.

Cons: Gas Mileage

Great For Two — Great handling, but not enough power in the flexifuel. Nice ride, and troublefree in every way. Get a T5 or D5 and you will put a smile on your face that will last all the way to your local ICA Maxi or nearest fjäll... ;-)

Pros: Handling, comfort and build-quality

Cons: The flexifuel engine

C30 = A+ — 2.0D 136 BHPgoes really well, brakes could be better, electronics intervene way too early under hard braking. Build quality is excellent. Interior is lovely scandinavian design, exterior is a love it or hate it kind of thing => i love it! Does an average of 7l/100 km with a sporty driving style This car is fun to drive and with a couople of aftermarket suspension goodies, it gets even better

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Same level of luxury as an audi a3, for half the price (second hand)

Cons: lack of aftermarket options

My C30... — I've had this car for the last 25 months - it's the longest I've ever owned a car, that should say something - still look back at it when I walk away to have a second look. If you want something different from the rest of the crowd , get a C30...

Pros: Looks...

Cons: Nothing...

Volvo C30 — Great acceleration, sticks to the road like no other, has a style that turns heads, modern interior, really fun to drive in the highway and on small streets, easy to park because of the size, sits four, no trunk us the only down side but it is good on gas and it's fun to drive

Pros: fun to drive, great style and amazing acceleration

Cons: No trunk

Volvo For Life — I love this car. It is so attractive and distinct you cant mistake it for anything else on the road. Despite it being a small car, it has huge amount of space in the back seat and is loaded with features including leather, 8 speaker sound system (designed only for this car), 6 airbags (it's a Volvo, what do you expect?), 18 inch rims, and a sunroof. I love the ride and feel of this car, it is very responsive and quick. The interior is comfortable and attractive. I especially love the "floating" center console that is easy to use and includes storage behind it in addition to the all glass back liftgate which provides excellent vision in the rear. The seats are so comfy and the back seat has enough leg and head room for my 6 foot brother to sit comfortably. I love my car and i am very happy with my decision. :) GO FOR THIS CAR!!!

Pros: Awesome looking, attractive but easy to use interior, excellent visibility, smooth/quiet ride, awesome sound system, handling and key fob

Cons: A car like this should have standard power seats, and when they arent power they are confusing to use and are awkwardly placed, heavy doors, slight turbo lag, no rear armrest

I've Arrived... — I had to have one. It took me a long time to decide what to replace the Fiesta with. Funny how it was a Volvo (owned by Ford) which grabbed my attention. I simply love this car and have found it to be a real head turner! Can you blame them?

Pros: Beautifully designed, reliable, simple, sensible.

Cons: Nothing
