"General Comments...& OSD Program"4.5 starson by Miata13
Pros: Volvo safety & quality in a sporty, stylish package that is fun to drive
Cons: $300 Custom Build Fee
Summary: Caveat my comments in that I am not a C30 owner(yet) but have test driven the car and do own a similar featured 2005 V50 T5 AWD we purchased using Volvo's Overseas Delivery Program
- Minor correction to previously submitted post - C30's BiXenon headlight optioon requires headlight washers (not wipers). We have those bixenons on our car; test drove regular halogen equipped and bixenon cars back to back one evening..and they sold themselves to me.
- The $300 Custom Build charge...like another poster said..this is just an irritant to the process and in my opinion should have just been built into the vehicle price...but wait, you CAN avoid that fee....
- Overses Delivery Program - we purchased our V50 that way and would ONLY buy a Volvo that way...save 8% over base MSRP, do not pay either the $745 delivery fee OR the $300 custom build charge, get two free round trip tickets to Sweden; airport pickup and transport to hotel (one night free) and transport to factory delivery center, factory delivery complete with lunch and factory tour, two weeks vehicle insurance and free auto transport back to U.S. dealer of your choice...check out program on Volvo's web site.
