If you can only have ONE CAR...

ReviewThis is the car to get if you can only have ONE car. It is luxurious and fast, without the S4/M3/C32AMG price tag, but arguably without the status either. It doesn't perform (speed and handling) like the cheaper EVO or STI , but it's a car you can drive to a business event and take long road trips without punishing you and your passengers with the ride quality. The S60R is tastefully understated and doesn't attract unwanted attention, but yet an automobile connoisseur will know exactly what it is and what it can do. It is the best all-around car in the $40k range. If you can have 2 cars, then I would get a roadster and an SUV.
Best FeaturesAdjustable electronic suspension. Blue metallic guages. Comfortable and supportive seats. Thick steering wheel. 6-spd manual tranny. Plenty low end torque. Perfect "sleeper" car. Deep trunk. Huge Brembo brakes. Built like a tank. Best luxury performance sedan for the money.
Worst FeaturesHigh beams not sufficient. Poor gas mileage. Poor turning radius. No satellite radio option (04). Awkward front cupholders. Everything controlled by software. Pirellis not durable for city streets. Little aftermarket performance parts available. High curb weight.
