2006 Volvo S60 R R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I just bought my (2007) R last week, but I can tell you I love it! The car is super powerful and extremely comfortable. It is a pleasure to drive and the Dolby Pro-Logic II stereo sounds great! So far, fuel mileage is much better than expected at about 22- 24mpg around town and 28-30mpg on the highway. My only complaint is the most common one amongst R owners: turning radius.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, impressive stereo, engine power and handling.


Worst Features

Turning radius.

Review

Bought this certified pre-owned and after only 1 week every expectation has been met. With only 22,000 miles car smells and drives like it just rolled off the assembly line. One issue I have is the summer OEM tires which are worn out. They're being replaced with Ultra-High Performance M+S Yokohoma's Advan S4. With a treadwear rating of 400 and rotation every 6,000 miles I should get approx. 40,000 - 50,000 miles out of these Yokohoma's) C4 Suspension settings >> Comfort, Sport and Advanced. I can go from a Lincoln Town Car ride (Comfort) to a race car ride (Advanced) with a touch of a button! By far the safest car on the road today


Best Features

C4 suspension settings. Volvo pre-owned certified 6 yrs 100,000 mile warranty which covers all labor and parts on practically everything. Warranty also has emergency roadside assistance; atacama leather seats, safety, awd, power, torque, ipod connector, 6 spd manual,


Worst Features

Although the 'R" is a discontinued model, I would say All-Season OEM tires

Review

This car is amazing! Surpassed my expectations. It's fast, comfortable, sleek, sporty, sexy. Too bad she can't be driven the way she's meant to be, which is way over the speed limit! Love shocking the guys when they see a woman behind the wheel just blew away their M3.


Best Features

GearTronic (the ability to shift to manual from auto trans), manual chassis settings, wheels, "R" labels


Worst Features

More "cubbies" for sunglasses, loose change, etc.

Review

99.9% of the planet thinks Volvo is about safe, family style vehicles. But speed trumps safety if you slap an R badge on the boot! This car is the ultimate in sexy edge exterior design and endless creature comforts. Not seats, thrones! I’ve had the car for a little over two years now and everyday I can’t wait to get inside! Especially now with a custom 3” turbo-back exhaust (solves your turbo lag problem BTW). ZERO maintenance issues save for the 2006 software gremlin that magically turns your R into a 240 DL. Great Fuel economy! Performance upgrades are spendy, but TRANSFORM the car into a track warrior (can you spell IPD.com?) I LOVE THIS CAR!


Best Features

Fuel economy, Torque, beating up cars $15k+ more expensive!


Worst Features

Turning radius. Volvo should have given us euro-spec lighting! Pedal spacing makes heel-toe pretty tough (for me)

Almost Superb!

Review

I couldn't ask for a better everyday driving car. It fast, comfortable, and safe.


Best Features

Exclusivity, exterior body kit looks, braking, navigation and ability to drive in snow.


Worst Features

Turbo lag is pretty noticable, the front winglets of the body kit scrap way too easily, turning circle is horrible and headlights need better range.
