2004 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
We test drove and researched many 2004 AWD sedans. BMW 325xi, great car/service but too pricey w/options. VW Passat GLX 4motion, no fold down rear seats (picky, I know, util you need them). Audi A4 3.0 quattro, too pricey w/options. Subaru Legacy 2.5GT/Outback, good value, proven AWD, but underpowered motor and nearly as much $$$ w/options as our Volvo. S60 was greatest value for the money especially w/family on the way. Equal to other German offerings but not as harsh on city streets. Uses same AWD system as Subaru. 28mpg! Very solid car, but quick on its feet...gotta love the Turbo! tip: Do your research & test drive on a rainy/snowy day.
Favorite Features
Seats!Absolute best out there!Smooth engine/tranny.Sport tuned suspension/no torque steer, tiny turbo lag.Quiet interior.Roomy: trunk,rr seats+frnt pass seat folds down,rear head rests fold down at touch of button,one touch windows/sunroof,dual climate controls.Did I mention the seats?
Suggested Improvements
EVERY car needs more rear leg room.Just one more inch!I'm 6'1" so short trips (<2hours) are comfortable in back. Milage is 21/28 but 38 would be better!S60 needs better turning radius.Won't mention cup holder design=Volvo already changed it for O5'Overall awsome car!No regrets!
