2004 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I HAVE RESEACHED THIS MODEL FOR TWO
YEARS PLUS, AND WHEN THE 2004 VOLVO S60
2.5T AWD BECAME AVAILABLE I JUST HAD TO
UPGRADE FROM MY THEN NEWLY PURCHASED
1997 VOLVO 850 SEDAN MODEL OF SEVEN
YEARS. BOTH CARS WERE FULLY LOADED.
STRONGLY SUPPORT THE VOLVO CARS. THINK
SAFE AND BUY VOLVO CARS.

Review

The S60AWD is a rewarding and enjoyable
car. The Australian spec AWD is well
equipped. However, the standard 45
series tyres make the ride rougher than
a billy cart ! 50 series tyres are
better but, the ride is still not as
good as the X-Type Jaguar.

Nonetheless, the more I drive the
S60AWD the more fun I have. Performance
and handling are exceptional providing
safety and excitement.

Build quality is first rate and fuel
consumption better than expected - 26
mpg (imperial) around town and over 31
touring.

Beware of flare in the 2nd-3rd gear
change. Dealers can reduce the flare
but Volvo really need to develop a
permanent fix.

Well worth a test drive.


Best Features

- Safety. - Performance and handling. - Four door coupe looks. - Creature comforts. - Thoughtful interior and exterior lighting.


Worst Features

- Fix the flare in 2nd-3rd gear change. - More compliant suspension to cope with rough roads. - Easier access to the ski hole and lay- down back seats. - Bring back station preset buttons on the radio.

Review

I recently bought a brand-new 2004 Saab
9-3 Arc and it was a very nice car, the
only problem was that it had too many
problems. No, this wasn't a display
model. Under the lemon law, Saab bought
my car back and I switched to a
brand-new 2004 Volvo S60 2.5T and I am
proud to say that I am very well
pleased. The seats are slightly more
comfortable than the 9-3 and the
interior feels richer. The speaker
system is (out of a possible 10) 0.1
points away from beating the 9-3's
speaker system. Well, I'm must happier
that I switched to a Volvo!


Best Features

Dolby stereo system, seats, high-quality interior, sleek lines, almost everything!


Worst Features

5-spoke alloys

Review

1) The leather seats that come with the
sport package are incredible. 2) The
power of the car is right sized for the
specific front wheel drive version. 3)
The S60 receives a one rating in the
five star ratin system with five being
the worst, meaning that the Volvo S60
has the highest rating for maintaining
the value of the car 4) Sleek and
sporty looking but still a four dour
sedan that makes the car very versatile
5) An incredible 8 speaker sound system
and radio, even at the stock level.
Volvo works very closely with Dolby
Labs, Bose, Harman Industries, Nokia,
Dynaudio, Alpine Electronics, and
Mitsubishi Electronics.


Best Features

The seats, power, looks and the audio system. Moreover, the car is five star rated and holds it's value well compared to competing models.


Worst Features

The steering is somewhat lose and it needs to tighten up at higher speeds. This is the only negative I can find, everything else is stellar.
