2002 Volvo S60 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This is my 1st Volvo. Went into the decision wanting German, but the value of the S60 in my mind was far greater than the BMW 5 series. Hated the IS300, liked the TL Type S but couldn't see paying $30+ for Japanese, and couldn't afford an A6 2.7T. The A6 was far and away my favorite, but $45K is a downpayment on a house, not a car!

Favorite Features

4 things come to mind- 1. The seats are sooo comfortable, 2. The power from the T5 engine is fantastic, 3. The upgraded stereo with 325 amps powering 13 speakers will blow you away, 4. The car is absolutely solid in adverse conditions.

Suggested Improvements

Torque stear is horrible and the manual mode of the auto trans is very slow. It is annoying when you go to hit the gas, have to wait for the car to downshift, and then when the turbo spools up, there is torque stear!
