Benefits of Driving a 2008 Volvo C70 Convertible

The 2008 Volvo C70 is one of only a few convertible models with a full-size back seat and space for four adults. It stands out from other convertibles for its solid construction and all-weather retractable hard top, and for its interior amenities, such as the class-leading Dynaudio sound system. As with other Volvo models, the C70 boasts some of the most advanced safety measures of any peer, including an advanced air bag and roll bar system designed to protect occupants when the top is down.

What's new for 2008?

Volvo's C70, completely redesigned in 2006, is relatively unchanged for 2008. Safety is further enhanced by the addition of a standard tire pressure monitor, and horsepower ratings rise from 218 to 227. An upscale Sovereign Hide leather seat trim is now available, as are aluminum interior inlays. Meanwhile, a Convenience Package groups such desirable options as rear park assist, keyless drive, a blind spot information system, and power retractable exterior mirrors.

Model Strengths

  • Flexible retractable hard top
  • distinctive interior
  • safety features.

Model Review

Volvo's convertible, the C70, is offered only with the top-performing T5 engine for 2008, a 2.5L five-cylinder engine making 227 horsepower. It's matched to a standard six-speed manual gearbox with triple synchros for optimum shift feel, and a five-speed Geartronic automatic transmission with manual shift control is optional. With the manual transmission, Volvo says that the C70 can reach 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of 150 mph.

2008 Volvo C70: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

(2007 model pictured)

Volvo's hardtop convertible, the C70, gains horsepower, technology and some fine detailing for the 2008 model year.

The news under the C70's hood comes in the form of a nine-horsepower bump; overall, the C70's turbocharged 2.5-liter in-line five now has 227 horsepower, up from 218 hp. A six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic gearbox are offered on the front-driver.

The C70's folding hardtop mechanism soldiers on into the new year, while, inside the cockpit, Laminated Oak wood trim has been added to the center control panel, console and door handle surrounds, in place of the aluminum trim of the first model year. Leather trim has been applied to the steering wheel and the gearshift knob, too. The handbrake has been redesigned for a more compact arrangement, and the clock has been moved to the information screen.

Volvo's also added a standard tire-pressure monitoring system, along with improved air vents. A brighter finish is applied to the hardtop convertible button, and the Volvo "ironmark" has been added to the remote keyfob.

Ice White paint is now offered, alongside Pearl White, and a premium Sovereign Hide leather trim is available.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Drivetrain 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Corrosion 12 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 4 Years/Unlimited Miles

Volvo Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

7-year/100,000-mile exclusionary warranty. The Volvo factory-backed CPO warranty fully covers every part not specifically excluded: including replacement/repair of thousands of components, systems and operations.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Model years less than 5 years with under 80k miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 130+ Point Inspection
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible No
