2007 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Bought it used at 53,000mi radiator crapped after 3 weeks. Power locks and power seats are dying. Failed inspection due to axel rod. Check engine light came on at 58,000. Than the coolant level dropped to zero and had to shut car off to prevent engine damage. Now trying to trade it on anything Japanese.


Best Features

Acceleration, exterior look, front seats


Worst Features

Radiator, power items, awful creeky center console.

2007 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Just purchased this auto after turning in a leased Mercedes C300. I loved that car so stepping down is going to be a bummer. However, I am pleased thus far about the Volvo. Good ride, though not sporty at all, and quality seats help it. I like the safety record and the reliability prospects for the car.


Best Features

Front seat comfort, displays, trunk size, turbo boost, stereo power and multi-disk CD player


Worst Features

One rattle that is annoying and I can't seem to find, rear seat leg room, tighter suspension

Review

The gas filler cap leaked on the car since the first full tank of gas.Service simply stated that they could not duplicate the problem so that is where we stand. Seat belt locks, so it is sometimes impossible to lean forward to see oncoming traffic. The overall quality and value leave a lot to be desired. I wish I would have kept my Infiniti, it would have been seven years old now but it was a much better car.

Review

I recently purchased this vehicle as preowned and after reviewing other consumer reports and reviews, and I am very pleased with it so far. I agree with what other people have noted and it seems pretty accurate far as performance and drivability goes for most drivers like me ( everyday commute for BASIC entry level luxury sedan). It has very nice standard features as noted in specs and does seem utilitarian overall and not as sophisticated as a BMW or Lexus but it seems more functional and solid. I would highly recommend it for someone with kids or someone looking for value in a sedan with good standard features and known for safety.


Best Features

clear utilitarian design with good quality interior. comfortable front seats (not so good in the back). good basic stereo speakers. handles okay. the turbo does lag slightly but it's adequate for passing or quick acceleration.


Worst Features

no rear leg room. could use a smoother ride (better suspension?) mpg around 22-23 in normal driving.

Review

Came across the S60 in Consumer Reports' "best used cars"; they rate the 07 S60 reliability higher than Infiniti G35(!). Found well-equipped one w/low miles for great price. Very pleased so far: it has sport package & ride can get a bit choppy over lateral ridges at times, but for the most part is pretty good, similar to 3-Series etc., very nice on hwy. Expecting ride improvement when OEM junk Pirellis replaced. Great solid build quality, nice amenities, front seats *very* comfortable; rear are as well but a bit cramped for tall folks, look @ S80 if you need more room. Excellent radio & climate control. Engine could be smoother, but has good torque. Averaging 27 mpg on commute.


Best Features

Great front seats, very comfortable; lateral support low, but didn't buy for fast cornering. No engine noise at hwy speeds, big trunk, tons of leg/shoulder/headroom up front. Nice leather. Highway ride smooth, not floaty. Very stable at high speed w/good passing power. Handles well for fwd car.


Worst Features

Ride is mostly good, but some road imperfections upset it a bit more than they should; Pirellis' poor ride quality is a big factor. Large side mirrors increase wind noise a bit. Could use 2" more rear legroom. Brakes feel a bit mushy, pedals a bit too close together, dead pedal too high.
