2008 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I liked this car a lot when I first bought it. Now I regret my purchase. It's too small for a normal sized person and forget about fitting anyone in the back seat. It's too small for even a child. The trunk space is not practical. It's not a true sport sedan and the gas mileage is poor considering its size and that it has only 5 cylinders. Furthermore, the relability is suspect. It has been to the dealership 4 times in 4 months for two intermitent problems (antilock brakes and the radio). No resolution for the second problem yet. The dealer has not been able to fix the problem without keeping the car for a week at a time. Bottom line: Don't make my mistake, buy Japanese.

Best Features

The seats are very comfortable. However, the placement of the emergency brake handle causes it to rub against the driver's right leg. After a while it actually hurts.

Worst Features

Enlarge the cabin space. Its too small. It is also underpowered so lose the turbocharged 5 cylinder and use a normal 6 cylinder. Move the emergency brake handle.
