This weekend I threw my two kids in our long-term 2012 Volvo S60 T5 and headed east to north Phoenix to look at and test drive a 1969 Camaro that my father and I have been thinking about purchasing with money we don't have. We don't have any free time or garage space for it either, but we want it and right now that's all that matters.

We drove out to Phoenix on Friday and back to Los Angeles on Saturday.

And the Volvo made it a very enjoyable run. It was comfortable, powerful and it can cover 500 miles on a tank if you milk it. This is an excellent sedan. Everytime I drive it I think the S60 should be getting more respect in the marketplace than it is.

For the record the drive was 457 miles each way. I averaged 26.5 mpg heading east and 26.7 mpg westbound. The EPA estimates its highway mileage at 30 mpg.
