2013 Volvo S60 T5 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6A)


No Volvo is better than the S80 until my engine blew after 32000 miles.
For one month I drove loaner S60 T5 2012.
I decided to buy one even though it was not comfortable and has no style. Factory incentives made it more advantageous to buy a new 2013.
After the first day, the car when given light gas as in heavy traffic or starting from stop has a rattle sound like a paint can.
The car went back 10 times from the dealer.
A file was opened by Volvo NA and they said they all do that because of the CVTrans.
The 2012 has different drive train.
This car is junk and everytime I hear that rattle which is everytime I drive it reminds me of a $40K mistake.
After 5 V's the next car is Lexus

Best Features

Well my least favorite is the size of my payoff. It only performs with the highest grade Sunoco. My favorite feature is when I take it in for service and they give me a S80 as a loaner. The BLIS lights should be in the mirror and not on a piece of plastic inside the car. The other is how Volvo NA and dealers have turned a deaf ear to their customers and how they deny and make you feel stupid.

Worst Features

Volvo, own-up to the fact that you are selling a flawed-engineered car
