I love my car. It is beautiful inside & out! It was so peppy & had great traction control! I love the turbo. I noticed it started using oil. I was told that this was normal with turbo. This became worse as time went on. Finally, I called the dealer & they agreed to see it even though by now I was out of warranty. The dealership acted oblivious to what could be going on. I told them that I had found in my research that this is an issue that others are having & Volvo is aware of it. They acted like it was with the t6 models & that this issue wasn't with the t5 model. They agreed to do an oil consumption test. I was told to come back in 3000 miles so they could check the oil level. I told them I wouldn't have any oil! They told me not to add oil, they needed to see it. I kept an eye on my oil level. Took it back at 2000 miles & it was barely on the dipstick. I also had the TSB in hand that I had gotten from a local shop. They said it did indeed include my car! I tried to show the dealership but they said they had it. They told me they were giving me a loaner for free. Although they charged me $150, supposedly for tax!? It has been 7 days! My car is still sitting untouched. I was told that they were waiting to hear from their territory rep or whomever. I got them all my oil change receipts, except 2 which I can't find but are written down in my planner. Volvo had the car a total of 14 times. Be careful buying this car. I don't want anyone else to be having the issues that I am having. I have a good looking car that has a bad engine! This should not be happening! I sure expected more out of Volvo.
We bought our Volvo primarily as an around town car, now we use it ft or road trips too and are very satisfied. Safety was my #1 criteria and this is the safest. We've had no problems and get better mpg than expected.
I really enjoy my Volvo S 60. The acceleration and safety features mostly sold me on the car. I live in a colder weather. The car cost almost as much as a BMW or Audi. The difference is the overall image and values of the company… I like Volvos focus on safety and being "understated."
Much more fun for the driver than for passengers. I have the 18''wheel package with stiff suspension. Great fun to drive; quick and responsive. Highway mileage is in the low to mid 30's and city driving is generally in the high teens to low twenties. The city safe feature saved me from one stupid (it would have clearly been my fault for not paying attention) probable rear end collision.
We love our S60. It is fun to drive, comfortable and safe. Excluding the below repair, we have not had any issues with our S60.
After owning our S60 for 3.5 years and putting 62,000 miles on the vehicle, we noticed that the vehicle was burning oil between oil changes (1.5-2.0 quarts). The cars warranty expired at 50,000 miles. I contacted Volvo North America and explained the issue to them. They had the local dealership contact me and setup an appointment to look at the car. After looking at the vehicle the dealer said that the piston rings were bad, and replaced them under warranty. The cost of this repair is $3,500-$4,000. How many other car companies would cover this after the warranty expired?
