A Good Safety CarI like the features that Volvo is known for. Where on most cars they are considered as an add-on, it is standard on Volvo. I feel very secure driving this car. The safety features are the best! You would enjoy the ride!
Ok for a wife, not a husband
Pros: Pick-up speed.
Cons: Poor visibility, extremely poor gas mileageFrom a retail perspective not as good as other options. Only would consider a Volvo in the future if deeply discounted.
Pros: The solid ride.
Cons: It is difficult to point out something about the car that I don't like. Oh! wait, there is one thing I wish was different - the nice rims get dirty very quickly from brake pad dust.A solid sturdy, elegant, but yet aggressive car. Love everything about it. I may have considered a T5 for the extra power but I try not to exceed the speed limit and stay with the traffic stream. The 2.5T is adequately powered for all possible maneuvers.
Pros: Sound of audio system, heated seats.
Cons: Small door pockets.The car is joy to drive, very comfortable and quiet. Turbocharged engine is very fuel efficient and powerful Luggage space is a big and with folded rear seats is possible transport surprisingly large objects.
Cons: there's nothing i don't like about the Volvo
Advice: Like they say, a Volvo for life, as I find this to be trueI've test drove the Volvo S60 AWD and find it to be a car that I would want, as to the point that I would not like to be in any other car
Pros: Rain sensing wipers
Cons: Back seat leg room
Advice: Do the maintenance per the schedule if your goal is to own a Volvo long termRush hour traffic in a major metropolitan area can make a driver feel very insecure. The S60 Turbo takes away the fear with its excellent acceleration and handling. Bought it used in '08 and looking forward to passing it on to one of my children when college comes.
Pros: brembo brakes
Cons: no rear passenger leg room - for a large car it has small back seats - this car should have been made a coupe.
Advice: if you need a high performance AWD turbo sports sedan - this is the one for you - if you need passenger space take a look at the V8 S80 modelexcellent road handling - after owning many high end Audi's, BMW's and Jaguar's - I never considered the S60 r volvo - but after one short test drive - I was completly amazed - great brakes, the brembo's are excellent - the optional 18 inch wheels with low profile tires grip the road and it just brings a smile to my face. This is Volvo's best kept secret!!!
