Try Building Something Competitive

2001 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)

Review

If you don't want a close relationship with the dealer service team, think twice about buying a Volvo S60. I found myself at the service center on a regular basis for the following: slipping transmission, sun roof replacement, radio seek button wouldn't quit seeking, headlights/talelights burning out, gas cover fallin off, key stuck in ignition, and the list goes on. The Volvo service team acted like this was standard, no big deal. It seems that Ford has stripped Volvo and is selling the name plate, that's unfortanate.

Lots of squeaks, rattles, clunks, and electrical glitches. Otherwise it runs nicely, looks nice, and is EXTREMELY comfortable.

2001 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

first child was on the way went for the safety factor-solid feel on the road- this replaced a BMW 325-drove 12 years with 240,000 miles-Volvo has had more major issues in first 32K miles than the BMW ever did-first winter car would not start below 30 degrees (it gets cold in Sweden,right?)-new ignition system, transmission slipping-like driving a manual and pushed in the clutch while stepping on the gas-new transmission-door open warning light kept coming on-latch sensor bad-Low Coolant warning-bad radiator-this car will be with us until the warranty expires.

2001 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Performace is all I need, handling is not quite a BMW, but this I will trade for front wheel drive. Why? The same reason I love the climate control, heated leaterh seats and great defrosters. Intuition told me if you want a cold weaterh car, buy one designed in Sweeden. My intuition did not fail me. If you live in a clod climate, you cannot go wrong with a Volvo. The only thing I don't like about driving it in Minnesota is I can't stand to see it dirty!

Great car, be wary of the sch maint

Review

I have had this car for 3 years now and everything about it is great. Fun to drive, comfortable for long trips, etc. My only complaint is the gouging of Volvo for scheduled maintenance. You bring you car in for each of the scheduled maintenace and walk out about 200 bucks lighter each time. The whopper is the 30,000 mile maintenance which ran me $510. If I had to do it all over again, I think I would go with a Mercedes C-Class or a 3 series BMW which doesnt gouge as much for maintanence.

Review

Since my dad crashed the car I was going to drive he went out and boughtme the 2.4T for safety, and I love it. It is the most comfortable car ive ever been in and it has a spectacular 10 speaker sound system. It is kind of a soccer mom car but still the kind of car thats perfect to own and all my friends are envious.

Great Car

Review

With the impending arrival of my daughter, my wife persauded me to get her the S60, little did she know that it has now become "my" car. As to the car seat issue, we have never had a problem. While you can't have the front seats all the way back, there is still room. I am 6'1" and put the car seat behind the drivers seat and only have to slide the drivers up a inch or two; when ever my wife has the car, she puts the car seat behind the passenger seat with out any problems.
