FYI, I bought the trailer hitch to put my bike rack on (couldn't imagine putting my trunk rack on this car). They said apparently the price is wrong on the website?, $230.68 Dealer said I was the first one to order one and they had to honor the web price, and it's still there? Cost me approx. $500 installed !!! Hope that helps someone...

Re: Trailer Hitch (Stuvo)

You may have gotten lucky if you only paid the price shown on the website ($230.68). The prices shown are for the parts only, and do NOT include labor. Actually, check out what it says in bold at the top of the accessories list <A HREF="http://www.volvocars.us/models/c70/Accessories.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvocars.us/models/c70/Accessories.htm</A> .<br>Labor could be another $150-200.

Re: Trailer Hitch (Stuvo)

I am also interested in installing a trailer hitch. Did they cut a small piece of the rear bumper to install it? How does it look when the bicycle holder is not in place?

Re: Trailer Hitch (yellow)

Yes, they cut out about a 7x8 in. section of the black section below the bumper. It's almost a horizontal surface, so all that can be seen from the rear is the square hitch. I had to look under the car to see the cutout. It has a black rubber plug that says Volvo in the hitch hole when not being used. It's at the same level as the exhuast tips. Does not look bad and now I'll be able to put my new bike rack on the car.
