S60 rattles and repairs
By Jon on


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


I bought the Volvo based on price (5 speed was deeply discounted) and the supposed reliability. Other than an 88 Tarus I had as a company car, the Volvo has been in the shop more than any car I have owned. At 500 miles the cam sensor went out. So the first 10 days I owned the car it was in the shop for 6. Its has been in for rattles three times. Bad oxygen sensor needed replacing. Fog light "plug" fell out of the bumper. Lug nuts are rusting. And the rattles are still present. I like driving the car the car, the comfort and fuel economy,32 mpg highway at 70, but you have to live with a lot of minor issues that are annoying. Oh, and the check engine light is coming on sporadically.

Best Features

The car is comfortable, and great in snow. I still really like the interior and exterior styling.

Worst Features

The headliner rattles have to be fixed. The car has manual seat adjustment with does not always engage properly, could be a lot better.
