Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The style of the car is awesome
Cons: Where do I start - lack of reliablility
Advice: Look at something else until Volvo can work out the problemsI have been very surprised with the lack of quality of this car. I love the way it looks, however, its performance is very weak. It has been in the shop several times, and it continues to develop new problems frequently. It is certainly not a reliable vehicle.
Pros: All wheel drive handling and acceleration
Advice: Buy itThe car is a well-kept secret. It has fantastic acceleration, and tremendous handling especially into the curves. The seats are supple and give excellent supoort. I have the premium sound system, and there is no distortion even when cranked up high. I recommend this vehicle unequivocally as the all wheel drive traction lets you blow by the Germans and Asian cars with impunity.
Advice: have a god jobsporty
Pros: The Stereo, Seats, Looks, Too many to list
Cons: Turning radius
Advice: Drive both with and with out sport package. The sport package is a blast!Beautiful car! Graceful yet sporty! Solid, firm. I have had an Audi, Jaguar, Acura, Subaru. This car fits all the your wants and needs and more. Hope the Volvo for life means it not only lasts a long time but that all your future auto purchases will be Volvos!
Cons: Back seats
Advice: If this vehicle is going to be transporting kids consider the S80.We have had these vehicles since Dec 2004 and are becoming very familiar with the service department. With the s60 the problems that we are running into are with the windows. My household also owns the XC90 which is another issue by it self. As far as the services being rendered for a luxury vehicle I thought the service would have been better than what is being recieved at the moment.
Pros: Blue display.
Cons: Too many to list.
Advice: Choose a vehicle that has higher reliability.I am shocked more people have not complained about this vehicle. I have had nothing but problems. The vehicle is always in the service center. Bad brakes, bad six speed transmission, faulty electronics, burning of oil, and much more. The appearance is nice, but the quality is very poor.
Pros: Just about everything this car has to offer.
Cons: Turning radius is not as tight as I'am used to.
Advice: Test drive this car. This car is a sleeper.I've driven Mercedes for years as well as Jaguars,and find this car to be a gas to drive. Three levels of performance at your finger tips,and 300 horsepower to boot.
