Nice car, horrible reliability

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

Review

The S60 has a solid, safe feel, which is ironic as it rattles constantly due to the harsh ride. The design inside and out is fantastic and timeless. Interior quality and ease of controls are excellent, but lacks storage space. Comfort is great, but legroom is tight in back. Visibility is horrendous, as is low speed maneuvering. The car is fun to drive when its pushed hard. Reliability is unacceptable. I've replaced the starter motor, sensors, seat memory, and a bunch of other computer related things I don't know how to explain. The transmission is dying. The auto wipers have a mind of its own, as do the interior lights and the fuel gauge. The car makes lots of weird noises.

Best Features

Solid feel, great safety features, slick awd, amazing seats and seat heaters, great heat and a/c, great looks inside and out, lots of useful convenience features, easy to use controls

Worst Features

Horrendous reliability, visibility, enormous turning circle, heavy steering at low speeds, lousy gas mileage, short on rear legroom, not enough small object storage, rattles, rough ride, often unresponsive key fob, slow to react at low speeds, horrendous reliability, horrendous reliability
