Fantastic used bargain!!
By happy 1st time owner on
2007 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
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.
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.
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.
