2006 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Volvo's secret is the buy of the year. Fast, safe, stylish and 10 to 15K less expensive than an Audi S4 or BMW 540i.Great interior(except for the roof liner). The Brembo brakes inspire confidence to drive faster than you should. The shifter is quick and precise but the clutch is a little quirky. Steering could be a little more precise, but this is subjective as my last car was an Audi TT. The suspension in either sport or advanced provides a nice tight ride and in comfort(which I use when my wife is with me) is still fun and very smooth. Its a ggod thing that few people know about the R or I may have had a much longer wait to get this car (2 weeks, it was on the boat).
