S60 T5 is great on highways

Vehicle

2004 Volvo S60 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

We also considered competitors with manual tranny: BMW 330, Acura TSX, Saab 9-3 vector, Lexus IS300. Quite happy with s60t5's looks, acceleration, handling and stability at high speeds, and comfort. Main grouses: wide turning radius; a little ponderous at low speeds that affects driving in stop-and- go traffic. If we had valued driving dynamics above all else we would have gone for the 330. Otherwise, T5 is a good package of performance, handling, safety and ride quality.

Best Features

Powerful turbo engine producing great acceleration for passing, exterior design, seat comfort, ride quality, stability at high speeds

Worst Features

Reduce turning radius; improve on somewhat heavy handling at low speed; manual gear shifting should be crisper (compare bmw 3-series)
