Review

I'm driving my third S60, the first one
was total by a rear end collision, car
hit me was doing over 100mph according
to police...my car was totaled, but I
was unhurt....My newest S seems to
better on gas than before I average
25mpg overall driving. Comfortable
front seats are my favorite
feature...MY last S60 went 65000 miles
without any repairs....great car

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


Review

I bought this car for my wife after she
looked at BMW 3 series and MB 230.
We've put about 5K miles on it so far
with no problems at all to date. The
only negative things I can say is the
turning radius sucks and the suspension
is a bit noisy on bumpy roads. Other
than that no complaints. Didn't like
the noisy 4 banger on the MB and it
seemed smaller. The BMW was the most
fun but with similar options would have
been 5-8K more and everybody has one.


Best Features

Most comfortable seats Unique styling. Price (titanium gray metallic,2.5T, prem. and sports pkg. $29K even


Worst Features

better turning radius quiter suspension

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


Review

This car is absolutely solid, very quick
and responsive, with its 200 horsepower
engine. I really like the AWD in the
snow. I got every package/option
possible and glad I did. The brakes are
really firm and stops the vehicle
quickly and evenly. I have owned
Cadillacs, Lincolns, Land Rovers and
Mercedes. None of them compare in
quality, fit and finish. The first time
I had the car washed, the attendant
said, "this car looks hot, just standing
still." This is a great car, but it is
really for two people, or maybe two
people and a grandson.


Best Features

Style, leather interior, braking, AWD, and engine power.


Worst Features

Move the front cupholders forward a little.

2004 Volvo S60 Sedan T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

We also considered competitors with
manual tranny: BMW 330, Acura TSX, Saab
9-3 vector, Lexus IS300. Quite happy
with s60t5's looks, acceleration,
handling and stability at high speeds,
and comfort. Main grouses: wide turning
radius; a little ponderous at low
speeds that affects driving in stop-and-
go traffic. If we had valued driving
dynamics above all else we would have
gone for the 330. Otherwise, T5 is a
good package of performance, handling,
safety and ride quality.


Best Features

Powerful turbo engine producing great acceleration for passing, exterior design, seat comfort, ride quality, stability at high speeds


Worst Features

Reduce turning radius; improve on somewhat heavy handling at low speed; manual gear shifting should be crisper (compare bmw 3-series)

2004 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

This car is very safe, enjoyable but i
just don't fell the ability to peel out-
-go rip the tires or go fast. I love
the car but, i would rather prefer a
subaru impreza or maybe a different
volvo or a bmw but, I enjoy this car a
lot also.


Best Features

I like the design turning and interior seats. Also, the ride quality and able to relax since it is not loud


Worst Features

Amke a louder version and a high performance version or package also.
