2001 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


I became interested in the Volvo S-60
because of the way it looked. I cross-
shopped the BMW 330I, Infinity G35 and
Mercedes C320. It became apparant after
test drives that the Volvo T5 had the
best combination of looks, performance
and price. The G35 was faster, BMW
handled better, Mercedes did not stand
out in any way. But, the comfortable
interior and full array of premium
options kept me coming back to the T5.
I still love the way this car looks and
drives. Friends continue to complement.
I've owned 3 Mustang GT's and two
Camaro Z28's and this car gives me most
of the thrill of those. Plus, it
actually drives well in the snow.

Best Features

Comfortable, heated seats. Steering Wheel Controls. 10 disk CD Changer. Large trunk. Fold down rear seats. Large sunroof. 3rd cupholder in dash. 17" wheels and tires.

Worst Features

Turbo lag is pretty apparant. Steering wheel pulls aggressively at full throttle - torque steer. Sunroof wisles above 70mph. Very noisy above 55mph with windows open.
