Find a good mechanic
By Mike on
2002 Volvo S60 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
A fun car to drive, but with 85,000 miles I've had my list of problems. With extreme heat (like in Las Vegas) expect the "wood" interior paneling to peel off. Fuel cap door, like many other posts have said, will break. Don't bother fixing it....it will break again. Headlights, buy them in bulk because you will replace them every couple months. Dropped a pretty penny on struts, tires and brakes, but that is my fault for buying a used car without getting it checked out by a mechanic first. New battery, fuel pump, and fuel filter, and it still won't start until you try it a couple times. 20 mpg isn't quite what I had expected from a sedan.
It doesn't look like every other car on the road.
$100 for a new battery, $800 for a new fuel pump and filter, $3,000 for new struts, brakes and tires....owning a luxury car for three years, priceless!
