2001 Volvo S60 2.4T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I am a car guy, and I tested a lot of
cars. Narrowed down to Lexus 300
(balnd suspension) Infinity I35 (tons
of power, boring looks) Mercedes C320
(inferior car) and The BMW 330i (road
manners are excellent, but lots of $
with similar options).
I chose the S60 2.4T because the 2.4
is a slug and I did not notice the
extra horses or torque in the T5. Lag
is about what it should be, and torque
curve is good.
I bought every option imaginable
except for the navi system, because
it's just not worth the $$$.
Outside looks are awesome, much better
than the others I considered.
Definitely recommend 17 inch wheels.
Enhances ride and looks nice.
Fit and finish is very good. Power,
road manners, looks and firm seats all
Have noticed a couple of odd
electrical things that happen once in
a blue moon and don't repeat.
