Fun Car with Class
By Bob Keenan on
Vehicle2002 Volvo S60 T5 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewJust lost my 12 year old 5.0 L Mustang
and was looking for a more "adult" car
(safer with more room). But I did not
want to totally lose that engine power
that I had with the Mustang. I did a
ton of research and narrowed my
selection to the Lexus GS300, the W8
Volkswagon Passat, and the Volvo S60 T5.
The Volvo just felt right. It looks
good, its soooo comfortable, its safe.
And when you floor it it almost feels
like the ole Mustang.
Best FeaturesHeated seats that are soooooooo comfortable. An unbelievable amount of hp in a small (2.4l) engine. The outside design is cool and classy. Air bags everywhere. Good stereo system. Quiet ride. Normal drivers will not notice the turbo torque that everyone talks about.
Worst FeaturesThis car could easily have an adjustable center arm rest and it does not. There are coffee cup holders but they should be on the front dash and they are not. More room in back (an inch would do). A little more rear visibility.
