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


It has great acceleration & handling. Nice sporty look. My wife loves the car, I would look else where mainly because of the interior design and options. I am 6’ 1”, on long trips the arm rests are not comfortable. It does not feel like they are positioned correctly. Power seat on driver side works with the key out. Passenger power seat does NOT work with the key off. Big pain when cleaning car. Nice stereo system. 2 levels of FM settings. Two step process to change FM levels where most stereos systems you can do it in one. Very distracting when you are driving. Do not plan on having 4 people in the car unless they are children. Two adults will not be able to fit in the back. No leg room.

Best Features

Great acceleration. handle and braking.

Worst Features

Wish is had better gas milage, only about 25 MPG on highway. Improve arm rests, Wish Both power seats would work without Key. I look at new models of the S60 and S80's and the power seats are the same.
