I compared the Volvo s60r to similar models from Audi, Saab, and BMW. The volvo provided more performance, luxry, and features for less! This car is extremely fun to drive and handles very well. There are not many of these cars on the road, heads turn when they see this Volvo coming... As far as annoyances, the glove box is of poor design and rattles, the dealerships offer no help. It is an admitted problem with the s60 series. As with most performance cars, it REQUIRES the 91 octane fuel, so be ware of that... The car now has about 4k miles on it, tire are already not gripping as well as they did the first day. Of course, I corner sharply at every opportunity!! Love the car...
AWD, style, power, auto trans with manual shifting capabilities, seats, interrior design/style, front-end looks awesome - semi agressive.
GLOVE BOX and other rattles, xenon fog lamps, LED brake lights, more interrior color options (sand color dash instead of black), don't let FORD touch anything volvo - will never buy again if influenced by FORD, keep seperate. :)
