2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

I tried to install an alarm system and
the anti-theft system already present
seems to clash with the new alarm
system. I'm still dealing with getting
that worked out. Also, I live 150 miles
from closest dealership and I've been
told that since I'm still under factory
warranty I will have to return to the
dealership should any issues arise. I
was told something TOTALLY different at
the time of sale. So I feel a little
bit misled. As for the car itself. It
drives ok. I love the way it looks and
have wanted a Volvo for years. A little
disappointed with the ride and handling.
I thought it would be slightly better.


Best Features

GOOD LOOKING CAR Excellent leather seats love the look and comfort of those


Worst Features

a multi disk in dash CD would be great...even my Nissan had that. Poor Visibility when reversing due to head rests A little more POWER, please

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I'm thrilled with the handling of y
S60. It hugs the road & didn't slip in
the ice. I feel very safe with the
car, besides the fact that it's fun to
drive. The driver seat is extremely
comfortable too.


Best Features

Heated seat & comfortable seat.


Worst Features

A spot for hands-free phone.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

A couple of things...
After about 6 months the car loosened
up a little. I have a rattle in the
dash and a leather rubbing on leather
sound coming from the back seat. Also,
when opting to shift the geartronic
transmision yourself, it isnt that
responsive, which makes it less fun.


Best Features

Car looks great. The AWD system holds the road very well.


Worst Features

The cruise control switch should be moved. It gets accidentaly turned on every time I hold the wheel in the middle.

2003 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

Excellent value - great ride, safety
features, styling. The car has a great
road feel, good power balance and good
fuel economy. The clutch requires the
least effort I've ever experienced!


Best Features

Front seats are very comfortable, all controls are easy to see and reach. Steering wheel controls of the radio is a nice feature. Ride comfort is good with responsive handling.


Worst Features

Back seats are a little cramped, a little more room in the back would help. Radio display is dificult to read in bright sunshine.

Review

I purchased my 2003 S60 2.5T AWD
December 2002. The winter of 2002/03
was the worst in decades. Snow. First
time user of an AWD. The only cars on
the road were snow plows, suv's, cars
that people couldn't care less if they
got into a wreck and my volvo. In wet
or dry weather it is fun to drive. I
like the body style, interior is nicely
designed, dashboard and countor of the
front panel gauges are attractive,
geartronic is a must, good power and
excelleration, ride is a little hard,
the drivers seat is down to a science
and it does not look like other cars on
the road. Hey, if I win the lotto I'll
get a Mercedes SL500, for now I'm happy
with my Volvo.


Best Features

front seats, 8 way power drivers and passenger. console with the geartronic leather shifter. head light wiper blades. folding rear seat head rests.


Worst Features

floor mats could be more plush. engine could sound a little more muscle powered.
