Great car with just a couple of concerns
By NYT-GB on
Vehicle2004 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThe S60AWD is a rewarding and enjoyable car. The Australian spec AWD is well equipped. However, the standard 45 series tyres make the ride rougher than a billy cart ! 50 series tyres are better but, the ride is still not as good as the X-Type Jaguar. Nonetheless, the more I drive the S60AWD the more fun I have. Performance and handling are exceptional providing safety and excitement. Build quality is first rate and fuel consumption better than expected - 26 mpg (imperial) around town and over 31 touring. Beware of flare in the 2nd-3rd gear change. Dealers can reduce the flare but Volvo really need to develop a permanent fix. Well worth a test drive.
Best Features- Safety. - Performance and handling. - Four door coupe looks. - Creature comforts. - Thoughtful interior and exterior lighting.
Worst Features- Fix the flare in 2nd-3rd gear change. - More compliant suspension to cope with rough roads. - Easier access to the ski hole and lay- down back seats. - Bring back station preset buttons on the radio.
