I love my S60
By tfoster123 on
2001 Volvo S60 2.4 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
I actually recieved this car at 192,000 miles, but I had been driving it as a family car from 168,000. We LOVE this car. My father and I do all the maintainence ourselves because let's just face it, Volvo's prices are nuts. At 198,884 (as of today) there are a few problems. My A/C cuts out after about 15 minutes, and I cannot turn it on if I want to get on the freeway. I also have a very rocky shifting, but have never had any real transmission issues as of now (knock on wood) and the suspension is less than desirable. However for a 18 year old? This was a great car to inherit. Other than the problems listed above, I love this car.
Driveability, Speaker system, Smoothness
The turning radius is awful. It's like parking a mack truck.
If you have a 2001 s60 and haven't replaced the throttle sensor, do it. Mine went out while I was on the road.
The o2 sensors on the car go bad all the time. Makes it difficult to pass emissions.
