Regarding over heating warning

T5 Drive-E Premier 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
5 of 5 people found this review helpful

I recently purchased a 1 owner used 2016 Premier model from a search on cargurus & after a couple weeks (and after only driving it twice) I too got a large overheating warning message in the middle of my display. Since I had just bought it, I called the used car dealer (not a Volvo dealer) & because he was over 2 hrs away, he told me to take it to a garage & have it checked out. The local foreign car shop told me the water pump was bad & that I needed a new engine. I was devastated, cause I really liked the car. When I called the dealer I bought it from, he said that can't be possible & asked me to take it to a Volvo dealer. I made an appt & went in & waited while they checked out the car. The mechanic came out & to my relieve told me that I didn't need a new engine. The problem was that the coolant is under a vacuum system & someone must have broke the vacuum & an air bubble was created in the coolant system, which caused the coolant not to flow freely. So he withdrew the coolant & put it back in under pressure to create a vacuum. He also said the coolant was a half a gallon short, so he knew that whoever had filled it last had not done it correctly. It's only been a couple weeks, but no more messages about the coolant being low or the car over heating. The dealer I bought it from was happy to pay for both diagnosis. I won't be bringing my car to the local foreign car garage, because he right out lied to me. He said he could see the coolant leaking out of the head gasket. I found that hard to believe cause it is parked in my garage and I couldn't see or smell any coolant. I'm glad I took it to the Volvo dealer near me and they knew what the problem was!!

Our new leased Volvo S60

I would suggest that you do not get the low profile tires. Also get the tire and wheel insurance package. I hope that Volvo offers more colors since we have had so many. My wife's 2006 Volvo saved her life!!!!

T5 Drive-E Inscription Platinum 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
4 of 4 people found this review helpful

I sold my beloved 2006 Acura TSX after spending 2 years researching replacements (I am on the 10 year plan). Looked at MB C class, Audi 4. BMW 328, Mazda 6. All had their strong points but I settled on a Volvo S60 Inscription. Did not need the extra back seat room but sedans are hard to find in the platinum edition and I the deal was hard to pass by. At first I questioned my decision but now appreciate the vehicle and highly recommend it. No, it will not blow off your socks but it will move out. The bells and whistles are awesome. Cars, like dogs reflect their owners and if you are looking for a good value, great safety features and performance for majority of us, you cannot go wrong with this vehicle. Plus is uses 87 octane! That is a huge money saver! Eight months in now and no issues! Have owned my Volvo almost 4 years and it is a rock. No rattles. Highly recommend it. Must admit the infotainment system is a challenge and not intuitive.

Volvo is like a magnet

I looked at many different makes and models to replace my '03 S60/AWD. This is now my 3rd Volvo, and they are like magnets, meaning I just cannot get past all the good points about the car. Same reliable drivetrain as my '03, which just turned 220k. Interior has attention to detail, and is very comfortable. The electronics are not that complex, and gas milage is actually better than my older one. It is tight and quiet. Back seat not a big issue, otherwise Inscription may have been an option. I am very satisfied with this car so far.

Underrated, Blast to Drive

T6 R-Design 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
3 of 3 people found this review helpful

The R-Design has tremendous power and acceleration and great handling, both of which compare favorably to the new, highly rated Jaguar XE. The interior isn't beautiful or flashy but uses excellent materials, has great bolstered seats which expertly hold you in place even making the fastest/sharpest turns and a top notch Harman Kardon sound system. The car has a simple elegance while being an absolute blast to drive.
