2005 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I purchased car used with 4400 miles. It was a Volvo finance division company car from headquarters in Michigan. It's automatic, very fast and turns heads. My car has the sport package (ground effects), is bright red, and has the Atacama natural leather interior option. This car definitely looks European with its low slung appearance and twin exhausts peeking out the lower left corner. It is so coool ! I chose this car over Acura, BMW 3 & 5 series (overpriced) and Lexus IS 350. The sport package and Atacama interior are a must have ! Seats are tops! Really comfortable. Engine sounds so great. All I need yet is a high priced radar detector ! This car cruises so effortlessly !

Best Features

External appearance, Ferrari-like interior, glowing blue watch dial dash gauges, super seats and super ride - quick adjusting suspension virtually eliminates bumps. Engine has a great performance snarl (maybe too much) but I like it. Plenty of power. This car wants to go. Watch the cops in this one

Worst Features

Turning circle. If you buy this car don't count on making fast highway U- turns. You won't be able to. Parking garages also may be iffy. Low beam headlights are useless - not enough range. Hi beams are OK. This is weird because they're Xenons ! Dolby stereo system seems dated. Watch the curbs !
