My car is safe and fun to drive at the same time.

I like the fact that my car is fun to drive and has a lot of space to use even though it is small. My only problem with my car is how fuel inefficient it is. I get about 24 mpg, which is not horrible, but it makes it hard on me as a student. Still, I understand that with the mass of the car, it is difficult to make the car more efficient.

- Hannah B

The c30 is a very safe car, and that's important when you are driving your family around.

Volvo has always been the most reliable vehicle I have owned. The c30 is very fun to drive, and extremely safe. When rear ended, I had a scratch, and the other car was totaled, which says a lot

- Megan S

Nice sized hatchback car for the price

Have not had any problems yet and it is very reliable. The engine is very quiet. Love the size of the trunk for a hatchback. The back windshield wipers are a nice touch.
