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


I've gotten the car for about a month
and only can say I'm very happy with
the performance and brinsky
acceleration of the car. The engine is
very strong and feels much bigger due
to the high low end torque. No turbo
lag experienced even when loaded in
stop and go city driving. The powerful
response at higher speeds is simply
unmatched for sedans of its class. No
torque steering and perfect handling
at all conditions. Fuel mileage can
hurt when driven at high performance
mode. Marvelous brakes and tight
feeling manual transmission.

Best Features

The active suspension with 3 sets levels is excellent. I can take my companions for a soft ride in Comfort but like the default Performace for everyday driving. The Advanced mode turns it into a GT car, which I use to beat BMW M3 drivers of less ability (assuming M3 a bit faster).

Worst Features

Cabin space needs improvement. I'm 6'4" and would appreciate the B-pillar back by 2-3". That would be more comfortable and safer if side impacts (even w/curtain airbag). Door to provide more elbow room in elbow-rest position. Leg space in the back seat needs another 2".
