R doesn't stand for Reliability
By Greg on


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


I've had the S60R for about one year now; it's a blast to drive, sporty and luxurious. The navigation works well, but does not have voice activation or a touch screen. So far I've averaged at least one trip to the dealer per month for "nuisance" problems and technical bulletin fixes. The 6 speed will make even the most seasoned stick drivers feel like a 16 year old learning to drive a manual tranny, it's never the same clutch twice. In spite of these shortcomings, Volvo has done a nice job entering into the M3 and S4 realm. The R can hang with either car and not embarrass itself. Just be prepared to fork over alot of cash at the pump.
