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


Review

Bought the car for my wife. We had
previously leased a 2001 volvo XC70
but wanted to downsize, as I drive a
Honda Pilot (great vehicle). The
dealer offered me the S60, black with
sport and premium packages for 28 K
(sticker was 35). I took it for a test
drive and was impressed.


Best Features

handling (except in parking lot), seductive exterior styling/lines, responsive engine. I highly recommend the sport and premium packages.


Worst Features

Volvo needs to adjust the speed sensitive handling for navigating in parking lot ... the turning radius stinks.

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


Review

The car is a joy to drive in all types
of conditions. The AWD makes the car
feel as if it's glued to the road.

The low pressure turbo is very
responvise in an extremely wide range
of driving situations.

The S60 is large enough to handle
the "sedan" type tasks yet sporty
enough to run with the best.

Being one of the safest cars on the
road the S60 provides one with a "feel
safe" senation promted by the sturdy
construction.

All in all a real 10!!


Best Features

The turbo and the manner in which it is "there for you when you need it" from the moment you put your foot down until your hair stands on end as it winds up the tac.


Worst Features

A bit more internal storage space please.

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


Review

Audi A4, Saab linear and aero, and BMW
325i models were the cars I was test
driving as a potential second car (have
4x4 for winter conditions and needed
cargo space). I drove '04 S60 turbo on a
lark, and was completely not expecting
the speed (have an old Volvo wagon turbo
also -should not have been TOO surprised
I guess) at such quiet acceleration. It
was a complete surprise to drive - for
under 30K US dollars, a true bargain.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet acceleration / simplified but functional very front cabin architecture / very comfortable seating / safety rating not met by BMW or Saab.


Worst Features

Spartan cupholders in front - need an update for the Starbucks crowd / cell phone hook-up on steering wheel needed / exterior color options are limited

2004 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.4 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

GREAT LOW KEY SALES GROUP. PURCHASED
BELOW DEALER INVOICE BECAUSE OF VOLVO
INCENTIVES. SOLID ROAD READY CAR THAT
ZIPS AROUND TOWN AND IS SOLID ON THE
FREEWAY. STYLING WILL NOT BECOME DATED.


Best Features

8 WAY ADJUSTABLE SPORT SEAT COMFORT. VERY COMPLETE WITH INCLUDED CALIFORNIA PACKAGE. I FEEL SAFE IN THIS SMALL CAR AFTER DRIVING A FORD F350 CREW CAB DAILY. VOLVO IS OWNED BY FORD, I LIKE THAT BECAUSETHE FORD CAN SERVICE CAR IN AN EMERGENCY.


Worst Features

NONE AT THIS TIME

Review

When my sporty new Tiburon was totaled,
I didn't even think of Volvo until a
coworker suggested it. I checked it
out and took the S60 for a test drive.
Man was I surprised! What I thought
would turn out to be a "grandma car"
was not just extremely comfortable, but
was fun and sporty to drive as well.
Safety was definitely a factor in my
purchase decision because of my recent
accident and Volvo has all the bases
covered. The interior is beautiful and
everything is conveniently located. I
decided to lease rather than buy and
will definitely buy/lease another one
in four years.


Best Features

The interior is beautiful (I have the beige leather.) The sunroof is large and opens almost all the way. Very, very smooth ride.


Worst Features

The only thing I would change is the fact that you can not open your trunk while the car is running.
