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


This is mostly my wife's car and we both like it a lot. Seats are the best and interior features are great and easy to use. Gas mileage around 24- 25 around town and 28-30 on long highway trips and it uses regular gas which at $3+/gl is a huge plus. It is more affordable than comparable Euro Sedans and has been a joy to own so far. I opted for the FWD model because the sport seats in the AWD we saw were not as comfortable and I think the seating comfort makes this car special.

Best Features

Seats are the best I have encountered. Turbo acceleration is nice and ride is extremely smooth. Gas milage is excellent and it uses regular grade gas. Dealership maintenance is also fee and the car is very affordable to lease.

Worst Features

Turns like a Semi, this is by far the worst thing about the car. The turning radius is so wide that it makes parking a difficult task sometimes. Radio has some odd features. AC controls not apparent to understand. Red/Orange-tint gauges tough to see in sun glare.
