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

Review

After break in I realized just what a total joke the S60R GT/Automatic was. DO yourself a favor and really drive this car prior to buying it. You will find early upshits kill all the performance and just as lousy downshifts limit how much fun, acceleration and control you can experieince with this joke of an 'R' car. The S60 T5 is faster by far as well as other cars in the Volvo line up. I won't even get into VOLVOS total reluctance to acknowledge a problem with the automatic...all they say is 'operating within specs'....yea maybe if it were builf to compete witha Honda accord...heck the honda will beat it in a drag race..I kid you not

Favorite Features

The outside of the car and interior function very well. The sadness occurs when you step on the gas and realize your going to get smoked by the guy in the Dodge pickup

Suggested Improvements

!: ALLOW THE ENGINE TO SPIN TO 6000 RPM SO THAT IT ACTUALLY MAKES THE CLAIMED 300HP @ 6000 RPM. 2: Admit theres a problem and either buy back owners cars or fix them so they perfrom as advertised....

I believe the R stands for Refinement. Not Race.
