1000 Miles of Smiling
By MM on
2006 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
A wonderful vehicle. The car has a smooth transmission with lots of power out of the gates. Very comfortable interior with a seat that even provides upper back support. A better bargain than a BMW or Audi; the interior displays/controls are more visible and reachable, and are as intuitive in an Acura - in my opinion. Good visibility all around. Really like the safety features - esp the whip lash protection system. (Though I would not recommend the wood steering wheel option - no grip on the wheel during a test drive.)
Power and acceleration are very smooth - haven't found a speed where the trannie jerks between gears yet. Handles very well with a pretty good suspension. Lights up the world at night - great night vision.
The tip of my foot occassionally rubs under the dash when switching from the brake to the accelerator. A few more locations for storing items would be handy. The key is slightly bulky to carry around. There is virtually no leg room for rear passengers with a tall person in a front seat.
