Thankfully I was able to return this vehicle under CA lemon law. In 12 months I had taken it in for brake squeak/squeal on 7 separate occasions. Tried euro spec pads, update US pads, deglazing rotors, etc. No fix worked. What good is a stealthy car if everyone around you is staring because of the HORRIBLE squeal from the brakes. Trust me, on many occasions I had to roll up my window because I couldn't stand the noise! And on top of all that, the Service Manager had the guts to tell me, "well all brakes squeak; its part of normal day-to-day sounds of a working car" To their credit, Volvo paid me back in full less $433 of accrued costs through ~1,000mi when I first reported the problem)
Seats -- the most comfortable I've been in Dash/Gauges -- Love that they look like watches
Brakes -- horrible squeaks Turning radius -- many SUVs have better turning radii than the S60R Fuel economy -- b/c its a turbo engine, it suffers from poor city mileage Fix those brakes!!!
