Well-engineered, and most attractive car
By srassam1 on
2003 Volvo S60 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
I have driven my S60 2.4 w/5-spd auto
for about 26k miles. This car is the
most attractive in its class, and the
price is not inflated compared with
European rivals. Overall I am very
impressed with the car, except for very
minor problems (Lock buttons), which
aren't mechanical. The car has
excellent braking, and superb winter
traction w/ STC and Winter mode). What
I truly miss on the car is Stability
- Sleek, Coupe-like exterior design.
- Extremely spacious trunk.
- I have added fog lights, which made
the front end look even more aggressive.
Base 2.4L could use more power.
Intuitive vehicle dynamics tuning is
badly needed, improved handling. 16"
wheels should be standard on base
model.15" wheels not suitable for
a sport sedan.Electronic climate
control should be standard in the S60
base, as well as the T5 aluminum accents
