Volvo provides comprehensive warranty coverage for four years or 50,000 miles. The Exhaust Emission Warranty covers corrosion-related parts for two years, or 24,000 miles, plus eight years, or 80,000 miles on the catalytic converter and any on-board diagnostic device. Volvo's Rust Warranty covers 12 years (unlimited miles), and their Passenger Restraint Warranty covers seat belts and airbags for five years (unlimited miles). Finally, the C70 also offers four years (unlimited miles) roadside assistance.

Volvo is known as a relatively reliable car. New Car Test Drive reports the "engine, transmission and suspension are proven to be smooth and reliable." With regard to the retractable roof's reliability, Motor Trend says where as it was "once too expensive and too unreliable to be a mainstream element of the automotive marketplace, costs have gone down and reliability way up."
