2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
We had a C70 crap! S60R is a much nicer
more modern vehicle. Ride and
performance is great. Brakes are Brembo
fabulous but they always squeal, always!
Turning Radu=ius is very poor. Car
sticks like glue and scoots when you
squeeze it. 5 speed auto is nice,manual
function in up shifting has to much
hesitation. audio system sounds really
nice but very hard to operate and
display is barely readable in sunlight.
lights are great as well.
Styling and Sapphire Black paint,
Braking and handling.
Push button performance
Interior feel and comfort
Engine smoothness and performance
Turning radius needs improving.
Audio system needs simplification of
functions and tuning to station.
Radio display super hard to read in day
One of the smartest buys in my life.
I bought it for my mother that I
respect and love so much. I searched
& researched hard for the best car
available in terms of style,
performance, safety, luxury and build
reputation. Volvo IS it, my friend,
and there is no doubt about it. Look
forward many years to see what Volvo
is really made of.
Great sleek yet classy looks. Good
performance. Hefty safety features.
Many neat luxury features like one-
button folding rear head rests.
Convenient DVD manual. Unexpectedly
pleasant dealership experience.
More leg room in the rear seat.
Fullsize spare tire. Compass. Rear
wheel drive and Short-throw manual
transmission option for true sport
Picked the car up in Gothenberg 19 Jone
03 and begain driving around Sweeden.
The car replaced a '94 Buick Regal SS
and took a bit of getting use to. The
cars breaks were shockingly good when a
deer darted in front of an on comming
car and then mine. And the handeling was
surperb when a Semi wandered into my
lane while rounding a blind curv. The
Regal would have been in a shop. The
S60 T2.5 AWD was on its way to be loaded
onto a ship for its trip home.
Styling is great. Fit and finish --
flawless. Handling, acceleration and
mileage during highway crusing -- 30+.
Seats are comfortable providing secure
Add cargo net as standard feature. It
maks a world of difference in locating
groceries after enjoying the ride.
