Thank you so much for the spelling correction. I am an uneducated, high school drop out so any help I can obtain from those more fortunate I do appreciate. If you check URL, https://www.media.volvocars.com/global/enhanced/en-gb/Models/2010/C70/Model/Rele- ases.aspx , which is a press release on September 1, 2009 about the 2010 Volvo C70 (note bottom of article C70, Model Year 2010). The information about this model being the 2011 was released just before the Frankfurt Auto show. August 31, I purchased a 2010 C70, pick up in Gothenburg on Nov 5. No problem, just believed from all of the hype the model shown on the Volvo news site was the 2010.

So you ordered a day before that press release came out?
Through which dealer? What did they say to you when you found out the '10 was not the model you thought it was? Did they indicate to you at the time you ordered that the '10 was the all-new C70?

I am not going to identify the dealer here because all they did was take the deposit and submit my order to Volvo USA overseas sales. When I contacted the overseas sales people they could not tell me anything. I sent a message to Volvo in Sweden and received a very "canned" reply that simply stated if I purchased a MY2010 it would be the same body and the MY2009. Appears that somewhere around the time I sent in my order, Volvo changed the VIN from 2009 to 2010 and continued with production. My understanding is that the 2011 will begin production in November (the month I pick up my C70 at the factory) with the automobile being in the USA showrooms around the first quarter of 2010. As you can see, the 2010 year model is a very short production period. Anyway, I am happy with what I will receive and have put the rest behind me.

I think you just had some bad luck with your timing. Best guess is that there will be some pretty good deals out there on MY 2010's after the 1st of the year.
My lease on my current C70 is up mid March and I'm getting in the queue for a new MY2011. The problem of course is I won't have any leverage on price, but I like the new design and have made peace with the realization I'll be paying top dollar.

Good luck, however, from what I read the price will remain around $40,000 MSRP for the basic automobile. I wonder if the 2010 model is the shortest production cycle on record? Would be interesting to find out and I will probably ask that question when I pick up our car at the factory in November.

It has every option except nav. The list price is 32,900 and I plan to offer 30,900. What things should I keep in mind in terms of purchasing a used C70?

Considering the state of the econmy and auto sales in particular, I would offer $32,900 "out-the-door" - meaning including all fees (taxes, license etc.) Assuming that sales tax and license fees come to about 10%, this reflects a discount of $3,290. Hold firm, get up to walk out and they will eventually go for it. Good luck!

Have you read your Owner's Manual? Instructions should be there.

Good advice, but this is the first thing I have done, No answer there. I resolved it with the local Volvo service, they uploaded the all program in English for 100 Euro.The car is beautiful and I enjoy it now in English
