As usual, Volvo has it's 1st year problems with the C70.<br>I originally thought the top would be a problem, apparently that's not the case, but multiple electronic (what else is new) glitches with the ignition key, the locking consoles and panels and other items that were mentioned to me but forgot what those <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> actually were.

Re: Multiple problems with the C70 (JRL)

I am sure that the service areas don't know what they are either.

Re: Multiple problems with the C70 (JRL)

Considering that only a handful of cars have been delivered, it is premature to say that "problems" exist. Our 2 cars have been flawless so far.<br>The ignition key setup is the same as in the S40 and that hasn't been a problem.<br>The only car that I know of that has had issues w/ the locking consoles is a pre-production car.

Re: Multiple problems with the C70 (VolvoMax)

I will correct this post and apologize to some extent.<br>Apparently the info I received was erroneous to a certain degree,<br>The problem with the locks is that THERE IS NO CENTRAL LOCKING SYSTEM:eek: on very early cars and the fault lies with the sales dept, not telling customers of these early cars that their cars are not equipped with them.<br>As for the keys, it was a problem with S40's but was informed that this does not exist with the C70 so I was given false info and should be taken as such<br>Also be aware when I mentioned the two dealerships in the above ppost I did NOT say the info I received was brom both, it was just a note to say how many cars were sold.<br>This info came from ONE individual which I either misunderstood or he was having a very bad day <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I also was told that these cars have had the <U>BEST launch of ANY Volvo to date </U>with<U> VERY FEW problems</U>, most having NO PROBLEMS.<br>So go ahead, buy one <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>JRL

Re: Multiple problems with the C70 (mJrO)

Since taking delivery a week ago, it has rained heavily here on the east coast of the US. Have not detected any leaks in the roof. Love this car !!!<br>The stick is so sweet. Will get pics on site as soon as the monsoons end. My dealer has been wonderful and kept my up to date with all delays(which did not surprise me) and then the car came 3 weeks early. Was out tonight for a drive, top down, temp on 70's, low humidity, no cops seen on the hiway, this thing flies, it was heaven. I am so glad I pre ordered this car for delivery now. It's worth the wait !!!
