2005 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I owned a 2000 Volvo S40 and while I liked the car, it was small and not heavy enough for me on long trips. Since I bought the S60, I have been on 3 trips on interstates and love the way it handles and feels.


Worst Features

More leg room in the back seat. However, I almost never have passengers in the back seat.

2005 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

very fun to drive. it's really good looking and sporty in 2005 with the side molding matching the paint-looks a lot sleeker. my 2.5 t has great pick- up. I also like that it is not as common as the 3-series bmws. volvo silver is very nice


Best Features

dual climate and dual seat preference with the keys. the geartronic can be fun too


Worst Features

turning radius is really bad for a car this size and this sporty. I hate the way the trunk locks me out a lot

2005 Volvo S60 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

This is my second s60 and I love it more than the previous one. It has excellent acceleration and handles very well. It is very steady on the road. I had an incident where I am convinced that the stability control and the way the car respond to sudden changes, saved me from an accident. Overall an excellent car.


Best Features

Radio/CD control on the steering wheel. moon/sun roof is the best! Free services!!!! Heated seats are great in the winter months.


Worst Features

add turn signal light to the the side mirrors, it a great safety feature I have noted on other cars.

Review

This is my second Volvo (1st was an '01 XC 70), that I've only had for 3 weeks but so far it's a great car. Turbo lag is almost non-existent. From the 1st tank of gas I've averaged 20 MPG in the city and the engine isn't broken in yet. Homelink should be standard and the turning radius needs to be better. I did get the sport package which translates to a very firm ride.


Best Features

AWD! Rain sensor wipers.


Worst Features

Better turning radius.

Review

This is my first but certainly not my last Volvo...they have come a long way from the boxy types of earlier years. Not only is this car fun to drive, it is also drop-dead gorgeous. Solid, quiet and just plain perfect. I drove BMW as well as Mercedes Benz and none of them compare to my S-60.
