2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
I 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
- 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
- Slight turbo lag from standing start
- Short urning radius w/17" wheels
- Low profile soft rubber tires wear
quick and expose gorgeous rims to
- Brake squeak annoying but can be
minimized with dealer service grease
- Low front grill shroud easily
damaged by curbs & uneven pavement.
