2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
I love this car. Awesome value. Great
blend of a high performance sedan and
family truckster. Get the manual
tranny. The car is awesome in the snow
but do get some snow tires. This car
will run with Audi/BMW/MB for less $.
I love the variable suspension. Unlike
an M3, it won't shake your teeth loose
in daily commuting. I love the subtle
exterior styling. I have had problems
with brake squeal and have already had
new brake pads (free). I have scuffed
3/4 of the rims at drive throughs. The
radio is a bit too complex to operate.
The clutch is a bit springy and engages
a bit too high. It took a few weeks
before I got used to the clutch.
Seats are awesome and extremely
comfortable on long drives. Car is
unique compared with the ubiquetous
BMW/Audi/MB. Variable suspension.
Please get the manual transmission.
Snow tires a must in Midwest.
Turning radius is horrible. 6 CD player
rather than 4 like my old Acura.
Steering is vague at low speeds-less
power assist at low speeds. Can't get
cell phone service for the on-call
phone. (No AT&T service in Champaign)
Engine sound is not as lovely as an M3
or MB AMG.
