Model Highlights

Volvo's convertible, the C70, is offered only with the top-performing T5 engine for 2007, a 2.5L five-cylinder engine making 218 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 reach a top speed of 150 mph.

The C70 was redesigned in 2006, getting a more contemporary appearance that blends in with the rest of the Volvo lineup. Most notably, the interior adopted some of the design features from Volvo's smaller S40 and V50 models, including the super-thin "floating" center stack, which allows a flow-through storage area behind the audio and climate controls. A special synthetic seating material called Vulcaflex is standard on the C70 while leather upholstery is optional.

The retractable hard top system folds away neatly inside the trunk in about 30 seconds, and while the trunk contents are still accessible with the top down, usable cargo space decreases from 12.8 cubic feet to 6.8 cubic feet. The top boasts several other important benefits, though. It offers better outward visibility and a quieter interior than a soft-top convertible, while the top also assures a stiffer body for better handling.

The C70 uses a unique door-mounted inflatable curtain airbag design which offers head protection in side impacts and rollovers even when the windows are down, and offers supplemental protection in the event of a rollover. Automatically deploying pop-up roll bars also protect occupants in the event of a rollover.

A six-disc CD changer (now with MP3 compatibility) comes with the standard sound system, which has eight speakers and 160 watts over four channels. The optional Dynaudio sound system cranks out 910 watts of power and has Dolby Pro Logic II Surround Sound, 14 speakers, and dual eight-inch woofers.

Several major packages group significant options together. The Premium Package brings leather seating, a remote garage door opener, and a compass, while the Climate Package groups heated front seats, headlamp washers, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Standalone options include a DVD-based navigation system, bi-xenon headlamps, rear park assist, and 18-inch alloy wheels.


Model News

Volvo's C70 was completely redesigned for 2006, and there are few changes for 2007. An auxiliary radio input jack is now standard, the six-disc in-dash CD changer offers MP3 playback capability, and Sirius Satellite Radio is a new option.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Volvo C70 is one of 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.

Summary
VOLVO IS RECALLING 1,114 MY 2007 C30, C70, S40, AND V50 PASSENGER VEHICLES. A SOFT ANODIZED LAYER IN THE MASTER CYLINDER MAY TRIGGER EARLY WEAR ON A RUBBER SEAL THAT CAN RESULT IN INTERNAL LEAKAGE OF BRAKE FLUID. IF AFFECTED, THE DRIVER MAY EXPERIENCE REDUCED BRAKE PERFORMANCE WHEN APPLYING AND MAINTAINING FORCE OF THE BRAKE PEDAL.

Consequence
THE CAPACITY TO BRAKE WILL GRADUALLY DETERIORATE FORCING THE DRIVER TO USE A HIGHER THAN EXPECTED FORCE ON THE BRAKE PEDAL WHEN COMPARED TO AN INTACT BRAKE SYSTEM. THE DETERIORATION CAN EVENTUALLY RESULT IN COMPLETE LOSS OF THE BRAKE SYSTEM FUNCTIONALITY INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE MASTER CYLINDER. THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER AND BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR WILL BE REPLACED AND CERTAIN BRAKE LINES CLEANED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MARCH 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLVO AT 1-800-458-1552.

VOLVO RECALL NO. 194. CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
