The fast and the sometimes furious by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/27/2008. Trim: 2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 1.0, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Fun car to drive, very fast and jumps off the start. On front wheel drives it is rare one can squeel the tires, in this one you can. Very sleek and sporty look, I added the hood scoop and spoiler for a reasonable price. Adding these two items really upgraded the look of the vehicle.
Cons: Not many dislikes, it is a little loose during some turns. Trying to find the right tire pressure has proved to be challenging. I expected a little more out of the gas mileage.
Overall review: Excellent ride, very fun car. I have a family of 4 and this car works just fine. If you enjoy a car that looks like something out of the Fast and The Furious, you will like this car. If you are looking for grandmas car, this is not it!

Head turner Fast car! by Keith from Lakewood, OH on 07/25/2008. Trim: 2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 2.0, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great styling, people are constantly stopping me and telling me how much they love this car. I even had a guy take pictures with his digital camera! 6 speed manual is great, Great gas mileage on the highway.
Cons: Love the look of the trunk , but it is impossible to fit anything bigger than a bread box in through the opening, Air conditioner often smells like cow manure, Bad gas mileage when driving aggressively,
Overall review: Great car, almost bought the mini clubman until I drove this car. Very quick, sporty, great style.... but after owning several Lexus' I am not at all happy with the Dealer west side of Cleveland. Numerous minimal problems, like broken rear wiper, loose headlight washer (they said twice that it is normal???) Foam pads under bumper were falling off, dealer told me they are not Volvo installed, but I bought the car new there! ? Go figure.
