Not the car for me
By Mr. B on


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


I have had this car for 3 and a half years now and have more gripes about it as it gets older. There are bright some bright spots but it accelerates slowly (i run the car on premium and use synthetic oil btw) really gets slow after about 80, and has so-so handling. The car has left me stranded twice, things that have broken on it: the key would not remove from the ignition (dealer said they've never seen this before), it's AC turns on by itself when the car is sitting for over 40 minutes with no keys in it (dealer replaced the whole fan and it did nothing), the right side blows hot air and left side blows cold air and the dealer can't seem to fix it, the gas panel door has fallen off etc...

Best Features

The sound-system, steering wheel controls, comfortable front seats, nicely sized trunk, tracks well on the highway, feels safe and doesn't draw attention i.e. people aren't going to try to steal this car

Worst Features

Reliability (i'd rather pay the amount of money i do to keep a Benz or Bimmer on the road than a Volvo) Performance (it really feels underpowered for its size, especially even more so in power crazy 09' than 02'). Better interior (some materials feel cheap and there is poor leg space in the rear)
