2013 Volvo S60 Sedan T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Bought used with high milage. All services were documented on Carfax so I felt that it was previously cared for. Honestly it is like it was a new car and I was lucky to have found a Platinum with all the bells and whistles. The drive is great, smooth handling. The audio is phenomenal. I didn't have warranty left on the car so I missed getting the dealer issues. I've driven it for almost two months and look forward to driving it everyday.

2013 Volvo S60 Sedan T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

No Volvo is better than the S80 until my engine blew after 32000 miles.
For one month I drove loaner S60 T5 2012.
I decided to buy one even though it was not comfortable and has no style. Factory incentives made it more advantageous to buy a new 2013.
After the first day, the car when given light gas as in heavy traffic or starting from stop has a rattle sound like a paint can.
The car went back 10 times from the dealer.
A file was opened by Volvo NA and they said they all do that because of the CVTrans.
The 2012 has different drive train.
This car is junk and everytime I hear that rattle which is everytime I drive it reminds me of a $40K mistake.
After 5 V's the next car is Lexus


Best Features

Well my least favorite is the size of my payoff. It only performs with the highest grade Sunoco. My favorite feature is when I take it in for service and they give me a S80 as a loaner. The BLIS lights should be in the mirror and not on a piece of plastic inside the car. The other is how Volvo NA and dealers have turned a deaf ear to their customers and how they deny and make you feel stupid.


Worst Features

Volvo, own-up to the fact that you are selling a flawed-engineered car

Review

Found myself shifting the trans to "Sport" mode because in drive mode it shifts like a granny and is unresponsive; it short shifts into 2nd gear when under moderate to heavy throttle.
In regular mode off the line, this car feels like a prius.
It is slow to accelerate and short-shifts every gear.
When trying to pass, the transmission takes too long to respond.
I would not buy this car.

2013 Volvo S60 Sedan T6 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

In the last three years I have had an Audi A4 quatrro and a Buick Regal GS, and this car is superior to both of them. The seats are the best that I have ever had, and the 6 cylinder turbo is powerful, and runs on regular fuel. Unlike the same feature in many other cars, the Sport mode enhances performance considerably. It is quiet, smooth, and much faster than I had expected. Mileage tends to average about 32 mpg on the highway, which is not outstanding but adequate. Interior and exterior styling is restrained and elegant, and the layout for all controls is excellent. I don't understand why I feel so few of these cars on the street.


Best Features

Outstanding seats, powerful engine that runs on regular, best cruise control ergonomics I have ever seen, excellent front and rear proximity sensing system


Worst Features

Oddly, this car has no temperature gauge, oil pressure gauge, or digital speedometer. Those features should be added.

Review

Everything about this car is junk. Build quality, mechanical quality, transmission programming.

I have never had a car I hated this much. Just wish it wasn't leased so I could trade it in.

Don't believe what you read. I have driven other examples and they are similarly afflicted.


Best Features

Nothing.


Worst Features

Transmission. Engine. Brakes. Build quality. Volvo Customer Service (there is none).
