I own a C70 convertible and love it. One caution, getting used to the rattles and noise of driving a convertible is an adjustment. Make sure you're ok with that before you make the comittment. Also, don't buy one with the 17 inch rims, stay with the 16 inch for a smoother ride. These cars are meant to ride smooth and you really feel the bumps in the rode with the lower profile tires.

Also, repairs on Volvo's aren't cheap. I had an ABS computer module go out on my car and it was over $800 for this unit. Everything is pretty expensive on the car.

But it's a great car to drive. It handles well. The brakes aren't like any other car I've driven. The other thing is you may have heard people joke abour making U-turns in a Volvo. The C70 is front wheel drive and the turning radius simply sucks. You'll know what I mean when you dirve one. Go test one out at your local Volvo dealer.

I love my Volvo, I want to get another one (not convertible) and put this one up for the winter. Good luck.
