Overall good, WATCH maintenance $$$
By CB1 on
Vehicle2001 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewBought for safety, performance, style
and strong $$ value for features
standard. Ride quality good, not very
sporty handling (leans too much) and
turbo lag with excessive torque steer.
5spd "adaptive" automoatic isn't your
average automatic. I was told that the
tranny shifts into neutral at a stop.
When your foot releases off the brake,
it shifts back into gear, creating a
buck or feel of drivetrain slop. It is
a strange feeling, but appaently normal
according to Volvo.
Best FeaturesSafety, features, style, MPG (31 on extended 500 mile trip!) T-5 quick, but power conmes in at high RPM. 2.4T more practical power for aroudn town. Very strong brakes. Fantastic Volvo service at Crown Volvo, Chapel Hill, NC.
Worst FeaturesFix transmission quirks,two burned out headlights in 6 months, intermittently "chirping/squeaking" blower vent under dash,sun roof rattles. Good car, needs refinement. WATCH your maintenance costs. The 30K $500 service is no joke!
