2004 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is the first Volvo automobile
that I've purchased and so far I am
very pleased. I wanted a car with a
nice blend of performance and luxury
that also stood out over the others
aesthetically. The S60 was my choice
over other AWD sport sedans such as
BMW, Audi, Infinity, and Volkswagen.
The other choices are nice cars but
their body style was too bland for my
tastes except for the Infinity which
was my second choice. I really like
the overall look of my Volvo S60 with
my favorite features included.


Best Features

The AWD system. Great in Chicago rain and snow. Premium package. Best leather in its class. Sport package. Gotta have 17 inch wheels. Sport seats are very comfortable. Spoiler. Available as a Volvo accessory. 2.5T engine. My kids ask me to "put on the turbo" all the time.


Worst Features

Cup holders in an awkward spot. Better visibility when backing up. Spoiler should be an option and not an accessory.

2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The car performs great, has all-wheel-
drive (AWD), and luxury to boot, and
all for under $38,000! I test drove the
BMW 330XI and Audi S4; the S60R is the
best deal. The Audi S4 is faster (it
has a 40hp advantage), but for $10,000
more, I WILL PASS, THANK YOU. The S60Rs
AWD system is superior to both the
Audi's and BMW's. And, the S60R comes
with the Active Chassis System (called
4C) which ontrols both the suspension
and the throttle response. Neither Audi
nor BMW has this option. So, the bottom
line is this: The S60R has it all;
luxury, sportiness, performance, and
SAFETY.


Best Features

Active Chassis System (4C), all-wheel- drive, 300hp engine, 6-speed manual, and high performance Brembo brake system.


Worst Features

1) Improve upon the turning radius; the achilles tendon of all Volvos, and 2) provide a turbo boost guage for all turbo powered vehicles. This allows for better diagnostics, allowing the driver to notice possible problems with the turbo system.

2004 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Volvo spent a lot of money developing
this car and it shows. I looked at BMW
M3 and Audi S4, they may be a few
ticks faster than the Volvo but not by
much and the Volvo is a lot less money
and cheaper to insure This is my third
Turbo engine car, first was a 78 Buick
LeSabre V6 Turbo (165 Hp), then a 83
Ford Thunderbird 2.3l turbo(140 hp).
Nothing like this one! Exceptional
throttle response handling and driver
comfort,


Best Features

6 speed manual transmission-shifts are short and true, active suspension, Brembo Brakes, Pirelli Tires, AWD, driver and passenger seating, Xenon headlights, tasteful styling without "boy racer" add ons.


Worst Features

Clutch engages way to high off the floor, large turning radius, radio controls are a pain in the ass, same with the Navigation System

Review

This car moves. Can beat just about any
other car off the line and can keep up
with the best. Highway speeds, you pop
her into 6th gear and she purrrrs at
you. Safe, strong and maneuvers well for
a car of its size and weight. Amazing
look. MUST get the 18" with Pegasus
titanium rims. Perfect combination of
sport and luxury. Mercedes and Lexus are
shaking in their boots, especially with
the MY05's on their way.


Best Features

Body style, interior comfort, stereo rocks. Best part is others on the road think it's "just another Volvo"...until you pass them. Automatic wipers are convenient. This car just looks tough...and it is.


Worst Features

More rear leg room. More color choics.
