Re: C70 2.0D SE Powershift (mrkp)

How was the power in the car?<br>Also, did the car you test drove have a hesitation in going from Reverse to Drive?

power is very smooth and works really well with the new dual clutch [powershift]<br>also very composed over potholes and speedbumps<br>the Volvo salespeople told me that no inbuilt nav system has the speedcamera's, so will stick to my tomtom<br>does anyone know why the fueltank in the 2.0D is only 52 litres as supposed to 60/62 litres in the other versions, despite having the same bootspace?

Re: (T5_awd)

Yep definately wrong, I get a nice *bing* whenever I go near a speed camera <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> (Just wish they would put in an option for calculating a different route! Road closed yesterday turned on the sat nav, for 5 miles it said make a u-turn until it finally got the point! ) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Car sounds nice though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Will that be coming as the new shape or the existing shape? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (VolvoMax)

My query was really aimed at whether it might see use with the T5 engine, in US C70's.<p>The 5-speed Geartronic is a bit of a weak link (performance and functionality-wise, anyway) in the C70 package - I was always a little bit envious of the DSG transmission that is used in the VW Eos.<p>Anyway, sounds like it's only for diesel models, for now.

Re: (BlackC70)

I dunno. Wasn't a big fan of the VW DSG box when I drove one.<br>Maybe its better now.
