Superb with few exceptions
By New Englander on
2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
This car is extraordinarily comfortable
(in the front seat) and very handsomely
styled. The back seat legroom is tight,
but not uncomfortable.
Open road performance is quite good in
acceleration and braking. Holds curves
well at higher speeds. Advanced
suspension setting is unusable for
roads in my area - other settings are
The premium sound system is very
average. Why anyone would want Dolby
Prologic for their non-Prologic encoded
music is beyond me. H.K. should have
offered a better surround mode.
Chosen over the BMW 330 XI because of
the seating. The interior/exterior fit
and finish is excellent.
All season tires should have been used.
Manual shifter is overly detented and
not as silky as the rest of the
drivetrain. Sound system is average.
Turning radius is too wide.
