A Blast To Drive
By jeffm5 on
2013 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6A)
My S60 T5 is the FWD model.
I've had it for about 6 wks. and have 2,000 mis. on it.
It's loaded with NAV and safety options.
Front seat comfort is outstanding.
All of the controls are on the steering wheel or within easy reach.
Handling is outstanding,, power and acceleration are very good.
The car has a solid feel.
The ride is a little choppy on rough roads, very good otherwise.
I'm getting 30+ on the highway at about 65 MPH and around 24 in mixed driving with regular gas.
Voice activated NAV and Bluetooth.
Adaptive cruise control and active bending Xenon headlights.
Rear headrests flip down at the touch of a button on the dash for greater rear visibility.
Electric parking brake.
Keyless entry and start.
Volvo offers the Safe and Secure plan which covers maintenance and repairs, even brakes, for 5 yrs. or 50,000 mis.
Tires are not covered under this plan
Back seat is tight.
No spare tire provided.
You get an inflation kit.
A donut spare can be purchased for $225.
It comes in a fabric zip bag and is strapped down in the trunk making a smallish trunk even smaller.
Volvo should do better than this.
