2006 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I realized early that this car was not perfect. The driver's seat was uncomfortable, the turning radius must be almost 1/2 mile, the back seat is almost useless. But it handles well, has good power and is fairly good on gas so I kept it. 4 months later the odometer turned over 7500 miles and a written notice lights up on the instrument panel to announce that it is time for scheduled maintenance. I exceed the maintenance and frequency called for by Volvo ... but not at the dealer. I told the dealer when I got the car that I'd go elsewhere for service based on convenience. Now they tell me that they'll turn this notice off every 7500 miles for $40. Enoughs enough. Traded it 3 hours later
Power and fuel economy
Make back seat usable, improve turning radius, give better lumbar support in front seat, don't force buyers to service car at dealer.
