Summary:

The most beautiful affordable GT Coupe ever made

Faults:

Nothing wrong with the car at all. The car is sensitive to road conditions if you have under-inflated tires, because of the low-profile rubber and wide wheels. But if the tire pressure is correct, the car drives like a breeze.

General Comments:

This car drips sex. It's a beautiful car from any angle, and still turns heads after being around for almost 10 years!

Very comfortable to drive, very powerful, and the interior is pure luxury. Compared to a brand new 2006 Audi A4 or BMW 3-Series, this car still feels like a direct competitor even now. Volvo make the best cabins in the world, no two ways about it.

I will never sell this car simply because of its exclusivity and style. Of course, it's The Saint's choice as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Worth every penny

Faults:

My power Steering had trouble because the Line was not properly attached in the factory. This caused "dry" turning. This problem was quickly rectified.

General Comments:

I was a little nervous spending 75K Canadian on this car as I was not sure it would be worth that much to me. I wanted to avoid the more flashy BMW and Mercedes. I am very happy I went with this choice, I swear by this car. It drives so smoothly and it's got power to burn. Second gear is like Mach 3.

The C70 is the most comfortable car I have ever been in. The seats are unbelievable.

There is very little turbo lag. Very tight turns.

Nicest looking car on the road.

The car is beautiful to look at. The coke bottle shape is so tasteful.
