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


This is my 1st Volvo. Went into the
decision wanting German, but the value
of the S60 in my mind was far greater
than the BMW 5 series. Hated the
IS300, liked the TL Type S but couldn't
see paying $30+ for Japanese, and
couldn't afford an A6 2.7T. The A6 was
far and away my favorite, but $45K is a
downpayment on a house, not a car!

Best Features

4 things come to mind- 1. The seats are sooo comfortable, 2. The power from the T5 engine is fantastic, 3. The upgraded stereo with 325 amps powering 13 speakers will blow you away, 4. The car is absolutely solid in adverse conditions.

Worst Features

Torque stear is horrible and the manual mode of the auto trans is very slow. It is annoying when you go to hit the gas, have to wait for the car to downshift, and then when the turbo spools up, there is torque stear!
