2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test


2012 Volvo S60: Takes Its Time

April 26, 2012

There are certain things our Volvo S60 does a little too slowly and I'm not talking about its ride.

I've been driving it for the past two days and I noticed that the turn signals don't switch off right away after you make a turn. They continue for another couple of blinks.

Also, when I turn the car off, the radio continues to play as it does in some modern cars. In most cars, it switches off as soon as you open the driver door. But the Volvo continues for another couple of seconds. Not long but just long enough where I can imagine my neighbors wondering where the two-second blast of music came from.

It's like when you click on an internet link and the page takes a few seconds too long to load. It seems like an eternity in this quick-moving world.
