2001 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Bought for safety, performance, style and strong $$ value for features standard. Ride quality good, not very sporty handling (leans too much) and turbo lag with excessive torque steer. 5spd "adaptive" automoatic isn't your average automatic. I was told that the tranny shifts into neutral at a stop. When your foot releases off the brake, it shifts back into gear, creating a buck or feel of drivetrain slop. It is a strange feeling, but appaently normal according to Volvo.

Favorite Features

Safety, features, style, MPG (31 on extended 500 mile trip!) T-5 quick, but power conmes in at high RPM. 2.4T more practical power for aroudn town. Very strong brakes. Fantastic Volvo service at Crown Volvo, Chapel Hill, NC.

Suggested Improvements

Fix transmission quirks,two burned out headlights in 6 months, intermittently "chirping/squeaking" blower vent under dash,sun roof rattles. Good car, needs refinement. WATCH your maintenance costs. The 30K $500 service is no joke!
