2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I am extremely dissappointed that
Edmunds didn't list the turning radius
as it's #1 con. There is nothing more
frustrating than not being able to
make a u-turn on a 2 lane highway
without having to back up. My wife's
2002 Honda Odessey Minivan has a
bettter turning radius than this. My
recent rental 2004 Chevy Malibu has a
better turning radius. If you drive
in California which requires many u-
turns and tight parking spots think
twice about buying this car. Volvo
has to fix this!! Other than that it
is fun to drive and a great value
considering what you are getting for
the Money. I wish I performed U-Turns
on the test drive.

2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Love my R. Fast and furious looks with the sport
package which makes it stand out from the crowd
of Audis and BMW's. Car changes behivior at the
touch of a button from comfort to race car. The
seats are excellent. The turbo is awsome. Sound
system is great. Absolute fun to drive. Does not
attract too much attention from police (yet).


Best Features

Seats, 803 radio, engine performance. External styling especially with sports package - Looks like an angry Volvo.


Worst Features

Aux. port for digital music accessories. Ride height adjustment for curbs, driveways and bad parking lots. 'Off' button for 4C system. Tire technology not caught up with 18" tire load, pick a different manufacture than Pirelli. More time in the day to drive!

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


Review

I sold my 2000 E430 when I had to
leave to goto China for work. When I
came back to the states, I needed a
car. I compared cars like Acura TL,
TSX, Jaguar X-Type, C320 and count
less others. I never considered
buying a volvo until a nice salesman
told me of the big rebates that they
were offering. I got almost $7000 off
the listed price of a brand new
volvo. I can not find anything under
$30k new that I can compare. The
Acura TSX was the closes thing to
compare with.


Best Features

This car is sooo quiet on the freeway. The 30mpg on the hwy is amazing and the seats are amazing.


Worst Features

For a car that has a retail price over $30k. It should come standard dimming mirrors and homelink. The parts and labor for this car cost more then my last Mercedes!!

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


Review

This is the first Volvo automobile
that I've purchased and so far I am
very pleased. I wanted a car with a
nice blend of performance and luxury
that also stood out over the others
aesthetically. The S60 was my choice
over other AWD sport sedans such as
BMW, Audi, Infinity, and Volkswagen.
The other choices are nice cars but
their body style was too bland for my
tastes except for the Infinity which
was my second choice. I really like
the overall look of my Volvo S60 with
my favorite features included.


Best Features

The AWD system. Great in Chicago rain and snow. Premium package. Best leather in its class. Sport package. Gotta have 17 inch wheels. Sport seats are very comfortable. Spoiler. Available as a Volvo accessory. 2.5T engine. My kids ask me to "put on the turbo" all the time.


Worst Features

Cup holders in an awkward spot. Better visibility when backing up. Spoiler should be an option and not an accessory.

2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The car performs great, has all-wheel-
drive (AWD), and luxury to boot, and
all for under $38,000! I test drove the
BMW 330XI and Audi S4; the S60R is the
best deal. The Audi S4 is faster (it
has a 40hp advantage), but for $10,000
more, I WILL PASS, THANK YOU. The S60Rs
AWD system is superior to both the
Audi's and BMW's. And, the S60R comes
with the Active Chassis System (called
4C) which ontrols both the suspension
and the throttle response. Neither Audi
nor BMW has this option. So, the bottom
line is this: The S60R has it all;
luxury, sportiness, performance, and
SAFETY.


Best Features

Active Chassis System (4C), all-wheel- drive, 300hp engine, 6-speed manual, and high performance Brembo brake system.


Worst Features

1) Improve upon the turning radius; the achilles tendon of all Volvos, and 2) provide a turbo boost guage for all turbo powered vehicles. This allows for better diagnostics, allowing the driver to notice possible problems with the turbo system.
