ReviewI have had my S60R for 4 months and cannot recommend it more enthusiastically! Aesthetically the body and interior project the perfect balance of elegance, sex appeal, and virility without the pretentious vibe of the BMW & Mercedes crowd. In my opinion the R gives you the most versatility and value on the market. First of all it's a limited edition vehicle(only about 4000 or so in US) which can only bolster resale value. Second, the combination of safety, performance, and price(got mine for 35,600) is second to none. Third, the versatility is addictive. This is the only vehicle on the market with the ability to choose from three different suspensions, thats like owning 3 different cars!
Best Features- The 300hp engine is thrilling - Active chassis suspension creates ability to taylor handeling to any mood - Brembo brakes stop on a dime & give you 9 cents change. - Elec Controlled AWD sense wheel slip and redirect power to wheels that grip is as good as claimed - Leather soft as baby's bottom
Worst Features- Slight turbo lag from standing start - Short urning radius w/17" wheels - Low profile soft rubber tires wear quick and expose gorgeous rims to damage. - Brake squeak annoying but can be minimized with dealer service grease - Low front grill shroud easily damaged by curbs & uneven pavement.
