I've been looking for a good condition 2004 (or 2005) C70. Is there anything I should watch out for?

Do you want the coupe or folding hardtop convertible?

Ragtop. Also hoping to learn members comments. What to look for and what to avoid.
Thanks,
Jerry

Really the top only has a couple of issues. Obviously if the car has been wrecked avoid it like your in-laws. All the other "problems" are minor and relatively easy to fix, IF the fixer knows what they are doing. Typical issues are potentiometers, microswitches, calibrations, cables. All easily diagnosed and repaired by someone that knows ragtops.

You need to operate the top several times. This is to make sure it is working properly. Also, stop moving the top about halfway through the 2nd operation and check the fabric for any tearing or harsh fraying.

Other than that just the typical Volvo issues. i.e. PCV, Spring seats, etc.
