2005 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Never owned a high performance luxury sedan before..looked at many models. S60R fit the bill in terms of performance, style and price. Have owned it 4 months now, no complaints. Powerful, stealthy...and COMFORTABLE. This is a solid car. I have the 6spd manual w/17 in. wheels...you can get very good gas mileage with this car if you're not constantly leadfooting...which is hard to do considering the horsepower and the overall fun of driving the car. On my drive to work (25 miles one way) I can average 30+ mpg easily. Turbos are great for this, you can tweak the mileage in your favor if you drive it gently..but hey, who wants to always do that? You have to let it GO sometimes :-)

Favorite Features

Power, appearance (mine is titanium grey, GREAT COLOR, looks good w/silver wheels), and comfort of seats....the absolute best seats I've ever had in a car or truck.

Suggested Improvements

Rear leg room is tight for adults, OK for kids and young teens.....gearshift can be difficult to move into reverse on cold days on initial startup (once you're moving shifter is fluid).
