Review of the 2002 Volvo S60

  • Is it an elegant luxury sedan or a sleek sport sedan? Surprise, it's both.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Long list of standard safety features, luxurious interior, powerful turbocharged engine in top-line T5 model, deceptively quick 2.4T powerplant, available all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Handling lacks true sport-sedan precision, expensive optional equipment, torque steer in the T5 model.

  • What's New for 2002

    The big news is the arrival of the S60 2.4T AWD and its slick electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system. Additionally, all S60…

Our 2002 volvo s60 2.4t

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S60 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Good on open highways, terrible ride on rougher roads. Great engine, but terrible car quality overall. Purchased new with 8K on odometer: * Before 30K miles: - Engine mounts broke - Black smoke from air.cond vents (on inspection Calabasas Volvo reported nothing found.. yeah right) - some air.cond fans no longer work - Radio sporadically changes station - Suspension bushings broke - Defrost broke - only does 1/2 window * Before 60K: - Transmission problems - takes 5+ secs to get in gear - Roof gutter-tracks paint is pealing - Plastic ext. trim is popping off - Plastic ext. trim quickly faded to light gray - Eng. mnts broke a 2nd time * much much more..




Watch out for transmission problems

Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S60 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I bought a 2002 S60 before doing my research. I didn't know that the 01 and 02 years had transmission problems. I would up with a $4000 bill for a new transmission! The lesson I learned was.....do your research. There was plenty of information on the internet about this problem. I won't do this again.




First car

Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S60 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

This was my first car, and sadly had to be ruined by a rear ender :( Overall great car, great safety features, good performance. The only downside I can see is being somewhat pricey when I first bought it (2007), as well as a boring and somewhat small interior. Overall great car, you will be missed bud!

Full 2002 Volvo S60 Review

What's New for 2002

The big news is the arrival of the S60 2.4T AWD and its slick electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system. Additionally, all S60 models get Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA), enhanced traction control performance and improved throttle management, resulting in quicker response in everyday driving situations. Volvo's Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) system is now standard in T5 models and optional for the 2.4T AWD (starting in December 2001). Other model-specific changes include satellite controls on the steering wheel and rear cupholders for the base 2.4 model and a memory function for the power seats and mirrors in 2.4T and T5 models. The entire lineup gets revised rear headrests, ISO-FIX child restraint attachment points and an emergency trunk release handle.
