Awful in Snow
By BarbB on


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


I like the look and the comfort of the Volvo - love the leather heated seats - but it handles terribly in snow. I am petrified to drive it in winter - have slid through intersections, need to crawl on the highway, etc. I bought the AWD thinking it would be good in poor road conditions but quite the opposite is true. I needed a car quickly to replace my beloved Nissan Sentra that was totaled in a hail storm. I jumped on the used Volvo based mostly on a friend's recommendation. Now I can't wait to get rid of it. Also, the AM radio never worked properly. And repairs cost an arm and a leg. Never again, Volvo.

Best Features

leather interior, heated seats, not much else.

Worst Features

The climate control is confusing. Air conditioning turns on to defrost the windshield - in the deep of winter. The cup holders need redesign.
