2002 Volvo S60 Sedan T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Though I haven't racked up a lot of
miles, this is a reliable, sporty,
true luxury sedan without the Lexus or
BMW sticker shock. It could use a
little tweaking of the interior (wood
trim, for example), to put it into the
true "luxury" class, but it is safe,
fast, and a very reliable player for
the money in the competitive mid-range
luxury class. I do wish the mileage
was a little better in the city, but
my car it actually exceeds the EPA
estimates on the highway. Finally, my
last Volvo was traded running strong
with 183K miles and expect the same
here.


Best Features

Turbo Smooth Transmission Safety Style Value and reliabilty.


Worst Features

Interior could be improved with wood trim and titanium gauges. Better fuel economy in the city.

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


Review

We bought this car new coz we loved
the look and reputation of Volvo.
However, we've had major customer
service problems as well as electrical
problems. Also, it is very difficult
to see to change lanes due to the head
rests in the back and the way the car
frame is built.


Best Features

This car has the most comfortable front seats in any car we've owned. Also, it has great get up and go and excellent gas mileage on the interstate.


Worst Features

Redesign the car so it's easier to see. Also need more room in the back seat for adult passengers. MOSTLY, improve customer service at all levels from dealerships to Volvo HQ.

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


Review

Volvo has a complete lack of customer
care concepts. We've had several
mechanical problems and fear the day
the warranty runs out. Very difficult
to see in order to change lanes. Back
seat has NO leg room.


Best Features

Most comfortable front seats we've ever had in a car. Roomy trunk.


Worst Features

Redesign so that vision isn't blocked. Work on customer service issues from the bottom up.

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


Review

I have had many issues with this car.
The transmission slips, hard start in
the morning, and hard to keep it
running when cold, stalls out
repeatedly . Ignition Cylinder just
had to be replaced. Electrical system
also. Cannot understand what happened
to Volvo quality. I have 3 Volvo's.
All 2002 model years, S40, S60,and a
S80. No problems except with the S60.
I am planning to get rid of this one
very, very soon.


Best Features

Safety.


Worst Features

Volvo should seek a new owner and bring back the real qualities of this car, also, change the upper management.
