I live in Northern New Jersey and priced out a lease of a fairly loaded C70 last week. I was quoted a lease price of well under $600 a month based on a 36/12k term. Looking at the numbers, the residual value is low, but I was given a good interest rate (through US Bank, not Volvo finance, although through the dealer), and the incentives must be so high that the price of the car is below invoice.

For sure lessors offer different programs in different states. But I suspect that the primary reason that good deals, be they purchase or lease, are available on the C70 at the moment is that there is a lot more dealer inventory of these cars now than a year ago, when dealers were selling them at or close to sticker. In my area, several smaller dealers have four or five units in stock, and some of them have been on their lots for months. The largest volume dealer in my area has 13 C70s in stock! There are even some new 2007 cars still around. Unlike the S40 and V50, which were substantially improved for 2008, the C70 remained largely unchanged, save for the addition of a few options like BLIS and keyless drive. If a buyer can do without those new options, he might want to consider getting a 2007 C70 at a firesale price.

I'm interested in leasing a C70 -- it looks like there are some dealer incentives now (the Vovlo website advertises $459/month, 36 months, $3,000 at signing, 10500 miles/yr) and a local dealer has a $479/month ad (for 11,000 miles, other terms similar). Has anyone had any recent lease/purchase experience with the C70 to share? I'm also trying to a gauge if there is a lot of stock on the lots and waiting another month might be worth it.
#316 of 337 Recommendation for service in NJ?
May 03, 2008 (7:03 am)
I am crazy enough to have purchased a fully loaded '08 C70 3000 miles from home which is Staten Island, NY I bought out in California as they had exactly what I wanted and no one in NJ wanted to deal any further than searching the northeast region of the US, so I took matters into my own hands. Locally, they kept trying to talk me out of packages that I really wanted.
I'm awaiting delivery and I"m very nervous about this. I need to find a reliable service department in NJ only. I won't go to Brooklyn. Anyone use Volvo Edison, Volvo Bridgewater, Smythe Volvo in Short HIlls??? Any opinions are greatly valued. My stomach is in knots at the moment. Thanks.

I'm curious why you would want service in NJ when you live on Staten Island. Do you work in NJ? Anyway, Paul's Motors in Hawthorne (Passic County) has an excellent reputation. I arranged my overseas delivery C70 through them and I have had them do my routine maintenance and factory recalls and updates. They have treated me very well, although it took three tries to get a mirror memory problem fixed. Apparently only one other C70 in the world had the same issue.

Thanks for the info. The reason I cannot service on Staten Island is there are no Volvo dealers here. I will not go into Bay Ridge, Brooklyn either. I live very close to the Outerbridge Crossing and the Goethal's Bridge, so getting into NJ is quick, plus I have always purchased my cars and serviced them at the dealers out there.

Bought a fully loaded 2007 C70 with NAV. Like having a built-in system but the GPS is not as good as some handhelds that I have seen. Does anyone know if Volvo is planning on an update to the software/system?

Just received the latest NAV DVD from NAVTEQ. Ordered it thru Volvo at:http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/Navteq-VolvoNorthAmer- ica-Site/en_US/-/USD/ViewStandardCatalog-Browse?CatalogCategoryID=SH4KCghBZ4AAAA- Ea3D9SppgT&ShowAllProducts=YES
It's a 140 minute update. Supposed to be a 3-DVD disk set yet I received 1 disk. I emailed NAVTEQ to make sure that's correct.
