Volvo C30 2012 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volvo C30 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Stylish car for $15k?

    With your budget you would be looking at a 2010/2011 VW Beetle, which had a regular automatic transmission and not the troublesome DSG that was fitted in later models. That’s a big tick for the Beetle. The Citroen C3 is a decent car, but an orphan in the sense that there weren’t many sold and you won’t find a dealer on every corner. As for the BMW, they’re too expensive to service and repair if you use a dealer, and they have too many niggling issues that spoil the great driving experience. The Subaru Impreza is well worth looking at, but my pick of that bunch would be the Volvo C30.

  • Volvo can not receive the AM band

    I'd take the deal and get on with my life. The company has shown good faith in offering to replace the radio at a much reduced price and the car is three years old and out of warranty.
