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


This car hasn't provided me with as much excitement since I picked up my new 1978 Triumph Spitfire. Obvioulsy not even close to being the same kind of car, but...I said "excitement." Blending a sleek, well engineered, and sporty design, an incredible 300 hp, turbo-charged powerplant, and an incredibly well designed interior, this car surpasses my best expectations. When someone in their 50's can get into a vehicle like this, and look like he's not trying to relive his youth, and yet enjoy it as though he was - Volvo's design team has reached its pinnacle. My kids don't laugh at me either - their jealous!

Best Features

The G-force coming out of 2nd gear on up. Sound sytem is superb.

Worst Features

The s60 R requires high performance tires. Northeast driving involves a lot of snow and the OEM Pirelli p-zero rosso's are useless in the snow. This is really a summer tire. Volvo needs to change the tires to the Pirelli PZero Neros (M&S), their ultra-high performance all season tire.
