2002 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

Was willing to pay extra, but should've
paid attention. Features made way more
sense in my S70, which was totaled.
Loud road noise, no pre-set radio
station buttons, clock and odometer off
when key is off, big blind spots,
transmission slips, door locks are slow
& no choice of lock or unlock on door
control - dumb! Has been in the shop
over 10 times for transmission & a/c.
Seatbelt chokes driver - cannot
adjust. Even new wipers skip and
squeal. Zippo rear leg room.


Best Features

Exterior design. Steering wheel controls for stereo. Solid, heavy doors. Gas mileage. Can haul 8 foot long lumber with back seat down.


Worst Features

Transmission, A/C, allow seatbelt adjustment on door post, quieter windshield wipers, sound-proofing in wheel wells, sturdier cupholder cover

2002 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I bought a Volvo S60 2.4T in Aug. 2002
with premium package, sport package,
and touring package.
This is a fun car to drive. I never
thought I would buy a Volvo, but I
really love this car. It has nice pick-
up. The interior is very stylish. My
only complaints are: with a 3 year old
the back seat is small, the tires wear
down quick (15,000) and are expensive,
and I had a problem with an RPM sensor
but Volvo fixed it in 2 days and
provided a rental car. Overall, I
would recommend this car to anyone who
wants a fun sports car!


Best Features

Interior, Awesome Stereo, Sport handling.


Worst Features

A little larger back seat, high beans that can stay on, a little better gas milage, but maybe that has something to do with the way I drive it :)!!

Review

I really enjoy my Volvo S60. The service
from my local dealer is great! I have
had some scheduled service done and they
will take care of anything. Everything
is covered by the Volvo warranty! My car
was a certified used car so I can look
forward to several more years of
unparalled service.
If you want a nice car with nice
interior styling and a great safety
record, this is the one.


Best Features

Leather interior. Love the auto dimming rearview mirror and trip computer.


Worst Features

More CD storage, and more change storage would be an improvement.

2002 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I do have to say this car is very
stylish and fun to drive. But, I have
had many things go wrong with this car
at only 55000 miles. The front wheel
bearing needs replaced at a wopping
$1200 and both rear and left front Link
Rods need replaced at $400. As you can
imagine I am not to happy with this as
it is no longer under warrenty.
According to Volvo Service, this does
not happen often. When you spend this
kind of money for a car this is one
thing you do not expect. Therefore I
do not give this car a thumbs up. I am
just afraid this is a sign of what is
to come as the miles continue to grow.


Worst Features

Needs better stability control when turning corners, stearing seems sloppy and loose.

2002 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This car is fine for someone who rarely
transports more than one passenger
unless the backseat is for kids. It
drives well on all kinds of roads. The
interior layout is okay; the stereo
system is confusing and a pain to use.
They needed to add a changer for the
component as well as station/track on
the steering wheel. The airconditioning
system is also confusing. Blind spots
make backing out an adventure, though
the flip down rear head rests are
helpful. The battery is nearly
inaccessible in the trunk (you must
hold the trunk floor up with your head
to access it), though a jump point is
located underneath the hood. Pricey for
the quality of the car.


Best Features

handling, braking, sunroof, stereo sound, turbo engagement at 1750 RPM, quite cabin


Worst Features

stereo controls, air conditioning controls, lack of legroom in back seat (same for S80), better tires - P6 must be replaced at 20K miles!
