2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

The objective reviews of this car are right on. On balance, the severe flaws in this car are outweighed by the advantages. I came from an Audi A4. The A4 just "felt" much better but the S60R blows the A4 away in pure speed and power. The S60R is not terribly reliable but more so than the A4. Both cars are expensive to maintain. The A4 was more comfortable inside and the A4 interior is more attractive.The safety features and the standard "extra's" on the S60 far exceed the A4. There is a major problem with the turning radius of the S60R - MAJOR. The rear seat room in the S60R is nothing short of disgraceful. The stock tires on the S60R are dangerous; trammeling.This car is a compromise.

Favorite Features

Power, Safety, gizmos (self-dimming mirror, audio system, Nav system, etc..), stealth appearance, wheels, surprisingly good customer service compared to Audi

Suggested Improvements

improve rear seat room, improve turning radius, safer stock tires, more comfortable seats, improve reliability, annoying delay in activating power locks and actual locking/unlocking; severe turbo lag, front bumper WAY too low-gets caught on cement parking lot dividers, very expensive to replace.
