2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
The S60 R is an owner's delight.
Performance is the most important
aspect, 295 lb/ft of torque throw you
back in your seat. The three chassis
settings add versatility that few other
cars in this price class can match
(Advanced is great for right-lane
interstate passing). 120 mph is smooth
& quiet. The brakes are perfectly
smooth & effective, not to mention good
looking. The metalic blue interior
gauges look great, especially at night.
And with all of the sportiness, you
still get a luxurious, safe, practical,
understated (adult) car.
300 bhp 295 lb/ft engine. Brakes can
stop time. Interior design is
excellent. Roll-stiff & flat under
heavy launching & braking. Excellent
steering response. Improved, incredibly
smooth turbo. Understated exterior.
Interior roof appearance is sub-par.
Visors should be rectangular at edges
and wrapped in leather. Cup holders are
useless due to the gearbox. Needs an
MP3 option. A sequential gearbox is in
order. The 5 cylinder engine isn't
always perfectly smooth.
