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


It's strange to think that I'm driving
one of the faster yet also one of the
safer cars on the road. With a car of
this caliber, a manual transmission is
a must. Auto shouldn't even be
offered. Pretty much set on buying
the 330xi until I noticed the R
existed -- on this web site as a
matter of fact.

Best Features

Like the 18" wheels, although would recommend available wheel/tire insurance if you live in the NE. Looks much better than regular S60. Love how the rubber side moldings blend in with my dark gray car. Love the stereo. Love how the car sticks to the Merritt Pkwy.

Worst Features

Bigger engine displacement with the next iteration. Better turning radius. Better cup holder placement. Rear seat tight -- not that I care. Pirelli's stick to the road under most conditions, but despite the DTSC/AWD, car not so great in snow -- get the snow tires.
