The S60 is reliable, comfortable and fun to drive. Both interior and exterior styling are sexy beautiful with nice fit and finish. Accelerates and brakes nicely. You really have to DRIVE this car on clover leaf type on/off ramps-the steering jerks and fights you all the way! Rear passengers (that can tolerate the limited leg room) complain of car sickness because the rear seating position is low and back end of car tends to roll when cornering. I've owned the car for 13 months-no repairs except for a broken gas cap (broke when removed to fill-up in very cold weather). Mileage could be improved as I'm averaging only 20.4 mpg (at least it runs on regular)!
I feel safe in the S60. AWD (though not as smooth as my old Passat) can easily handle rain, snow, & ice. Simple radio & climate controls enhance safety as there is no need to take your eyes off the road while driving. Zoned heat/AC. Supportive, comfortable, heated leather seats. Individual look!
Improve rear visibility-difficult to see when changing lanes. Improve steering/handling when making tight turns. Better mileage. Rear leg room-even young children are cramped. Heat is difficult to adjust-either hot/cold (no in-between). Need a back wiper. Add rear view mirror to the memory system.
