2003 Volvo S60 Sedan T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I now own a 2003 S60 T5. My first try
was a new 2002 S60T5 which was
returned to Volvo because when cold
starting the vehicle and placing it in
gear the car would "choke" and jump.
Now our 2003, brand new volvo S60 T5
is doing the same thing and the
dealership cannot find what the
problem is. This is very frustrating
since i'm paying a fortune for the
car, and my confidence in the
reliability of the vehicle has been
blemished. I'm truly dissapointed in
the ability of checking the vehicles
system for faults, since Volvo appears
unable to detect the fault.


Best Features

The stereo system is plush and so is the rest of the vehicles interior, very comfortable and elegant.


Worst Features

Car needs more space in back seating. And most of all someone to figure out what is making my T5 act up after cold start.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

The ride comfort and handling are
excellent. Suspension is rather softer
than other maker's sports sedans. But
if you like comfortable ride, that's
not a big problem at all.

Tire grip is also good, especially
with sports package (P215/55/R16).

People recommend to choose non-turbo
model if you drive this car more than
60,000 miles.


Best Features

Soft ride feel. Rigid build quality.


Worst Features

Large turning circle, especially at parking. You might be embarassed at the turning circle like me.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is my first "luxury car" and I'm
very pleased so far. AWD was a must
where we live and the lease deal on a
similarly equiped car couldn't be found
among competitors. I had a manual
Maxima so the turbo lag took some
getting use to, but pick-up is nice and
interior is beautiful. Love the
exterior look. Very classy! Can't
wait to test out winter handling.


Best Features

Looks great!!!Nice stereo.Comfortable front seats.Fuel economy is much better than Maxima.Safety features are impressive.Nice truck size.


Worst Features

Backseat definitely needs more leg room.Should be able to leave driving light switch on so they always go on with headlights.Automatic wipers need a little work.Sometimes they're to fast or slow regardless of adjustment.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

A great deal, a beautiful car, very
comfortable front seats (back is a
little small) and smooth ride.

Previously owned a Camry and looked at
Avalon, Acura TL and Volvo. Volvo's
quality, styling, and comfort won
hand's down.


Best Features

Sound system and front driver seat comfort. Good gas mileage as well.


Worst Features

Make cup holder in middle a little more accessible.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I admit that I never thought I would
buy a Volvo. The end of year
incentives made me give it a look.
Those incentives allowed me to get a
2.4T with sport, luxury, and touring
package for under $30K. I kind of
like the distinctive styling. Around
San Fran Bay Area, 90% of the cars are
Honda, Toyota or BMWs. I am
glad I at least got something semi-
unique. It is a nice car that has
decent power. I am a little wary of
how it will hold up, given some of the
comments in here, but I tend to treat
cars gently so I think it will last a
long time. The gas mileage is OK.
The fronts seats are very nice.


Best Features

Fronts seats. Styling. Geartronic transmission is a good toy, but I only got it because it was on the car I wanted.


Worst Features

Back seat space. More storage nooks in cabin. Make radio display more visible during daytime. Standard radio is only so-so. When you use the cup holder in the center you can't use the center as an armrest.
