2012 Volvo C30 T5 PlatinumReview
Fun Car — I love this car and there is a part of me that is sad to move on, but with a family and a new job that requires taking clients to lunch and dinner meetings there is a need for a vehicle with 4 doors and more leg room. It is sporty and fast with the turbo charged 5 cylinder volvo motor, but it still gets over 30 mpg on the highway which is where I did most of my driving.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: The car is extremely fun to drive. Fast with great handling and the auto shift option gives you the ability to take it through turns like a manuel transmission
Cons: Not a great family car, very little leg room in the back seats, but can handle a decent load with the rear seats folded flat.
