2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Stumbled upon this car while shopping
for a car for my dad. Never seriously
considered a Volvo although a did
admire its styling and long list of
amenities. Had narrowed my choices to
an Acura TL and Infiniti G35 Coupe,
both with manual transmissions. After
wrapping up the deal for dad, the
salesman suggested I take the S60R in
the showroom for a test spin. I took
the bait, hook, line and sinker. The
car was meant to be driven, the harder
you drive it the better it responds.
The active suspension works like a
charm, allowing the driver to cruise in
comfort or tighten the chassis to
handle like a true sports car. Did I
mention the lack of turbo-lag?
