Pros: Just about everything!
Cons: Short turning radius.
Advice: Give this car serious consideration!After having 'practical' cars while the children were home, it was time to get something I would enjoy with some power and great looks. I absolutely 'love' my new S60 2.5T. I did have to adjust to the slight turbo lag. Now I don't worry about being run over on the freeways or getting into the traffic. We bought the car in June 2004 and have slightly over 5000 miles. We have had a great time in it! This car is highly recommended.
Cons: Turning ratio of AWD
Advice: Check the turning ratioI recently went back to Volvo after owning an S-type Jaguar and do enjoy the ability of the engine to deliver on demand. There is still a slight turbo lag, but this is not a problem on the highway. Other than the wide turning ratio in city traffic, I'm happy to be back in a Volvo.
Advice: buy itoh yeah!!!
Pros: Front seat comfort and support
Cons: head light coverage
Advice: Don't let your friends drive itOnce you step in this S60R, the seats grab you and prepare you for the ride of your life. Put the car in gear, dump the clutch, stand on it, and let the awd grip the road and rocket your forward pass all other luxury cars in this price range. Once you heart slows down and you realize you are traveling well over the speed limit you let off the gas, change the suspension setting from advanced to comfort and cruise down the highway knowing you can easily rocket pass 98% of the cars on the road.
