2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
The first thing that caught my
attention was the fit, feel, and
comfort of the seats. The side
bolsters just beg you drive the car.
Its got to be the sleeper car of the
decade. Was at 80 mph in second gear
before the end of the entrance ramp.
Its the first time I ever had to slow
down to merge onto the I-state. Turbo
provides a solid kick in the pants with
very little lag. Makes driving FUN.
Blue gauges, aluminum accents, and blue
stitching are sharp. Salesman said it
would seem there was always someone's
bumper in your face and he was right.
This is not your fathers Volvo its
300 hp; telling people who ask that
the R means really goes; the
opportunity to provide evidence to
unsuspecting BMWs that its no fluke;
some road noise is necessary and thats
all you hear just whats necessary.
LEDs susceptible to glare;
personalization presets should activate
at unlock to preclude seat
repositioning after I open the door,
especially when its raining.
