Double trouble

2008 Volvo S60 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


We own both the XC90 and S60and have been frustrated with both vehicles.
Both have seen more than their fair share of the service department and the lack of concern from Volvo has been discouraging.
In two years of the S60, we have had to replace the ignition switches twice. The emergency cable never really engaged properly so it had to be adjusted as well as the sunroof at a cost. A faulty ABS contact reeel and front axle shaft had to be replaced due to recalls. The headlight washer fell off and had to be replaced twice. As if we didn’t feel nickeled and dimed already, we now have to replace the Fire Trap Housing not covered on the warranty. We are very disappointed.

Best Features

Nice to look at

Worst Features

Better engineering of parts and more concern from the people who run Volvo. We have written several letters to Volvo Management and have received poor responses. Shame on them to lose a double Volvo costumer due to lack of a better response. We will never buy another Volvo.
