I never thought I'd own a Volvo. Ever. My Acura and Mercedes were sweet rides. But here I have a sporty four door that is billed as the safest sedan out there, plenty of pep and road feel, and after 8,000 miles I'm won over. Small squeaky belt issue, and mileage could be better (25 combined, 29 on highway) but the seats are SO comfy, and I like the sparse / not busy interior with smoother leather than you'll find on similarly priced cars. I wish I had a 2013 AWD, but for this price it's a lot of bang for your buck. I don't know why anyone would get an overpriced and dull Merc C instead of this (in regard to a previous S60 reviewer).
Comfortable seats on long drives, front design, nice acceleration.
