Convertible Negatives  - 2012 Volvo C70 Review - Reviews - Volvo C70

With the top down, the C70 isn't as proficient as others in its class at cutting down turbulence in the cabin; you'll feel more wind rushing through your hair and "massaging" the side of your face. Volvo sells optional wind deflectors that should help, but our test car didn't have them. In addition to being burdensome to install, remove and store, these screens close off the backseat when deployed.

Also, while driving, the rear seat belts slap the backseat loudly enough that a couple of times I thought something had actually shaken loose. Is this the end of the world? No, but the best convertibles don't give you the sense that something's gone wrong in the cabin or that you're riding a motorcycle.
