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