I bought my XC60 a month ago and was so excited about it but it's turned out to be a total dud. Within a week, I was getting dashboard warnings for 12V System Service Required. The car has already spent 4 days out of service during 2 separate visits to the dealer to try to fix it. I've only had it back 3 days and the error has returned, indicating the electrical system is still not properly charging the battery. It's going back to the dealer ASAP but I no longer have any faith that they're going to fix the problem. I will probably end up having to hire an attorney and sue Volvo under Lemon Law for the total pile of junk they sold and the ridiculous amount of time that has gone into trying to get it fixed. Think long and hard about how much of a stomach you have for these headaches.

Love my XC60

Chose the T8 hybrid - charging is easy, not fast, but easy. Have been able to get up to and over 1000 miles on one tank of gas, which for me is a win. Test drove Mercedes GLE, Audi (5,7&8), and Lexus and preferred the ride, power and feel of the Volvo. Factor in all the features and I’m a happy owner.

Want a SUV that feels solid, soaks up bumps, quiet, fast and economical? Get the Volvo XC60 with Inscription Trim and T5 engine. You won't miss the V6 or V8 with the turbocharged 2.0 liter engine and no you don't need the Polestar Package either. Comfort, ride, and elegance all neatly wrapped you in this AWD cage of safety. I've owned VW, Toyota, Honda, Chevy, Subaru, Oldsmobile, Jeep, and Cadillac. Lows: touchscreen display, not Apple Play compatible, air-conditioning is weak.

It had been 6 years since my last Volvo. I moved to the midwest in an XC60 but the lease ended and the nearest dealer was over 100 miles away. Recently retired, I now have extra time to travel for service. Volvo makes the most comfortable car seats of any model in this price range. The safety features are amazing. The electronics are intuitive and easy to navigate. We got the T8 hybrid and charging is simply and straightforward. We drove home in a snowstorm and the cars handles exceedlingly well on slick roads. It's everything that I wanted and more

I was test driving all the vehicles in the same class size as the XC60 and I can tell you without a doubt that this is the best option out there. To top it all off, it has the best features, best power in the base engine, best dealership experience, and is well known for being the safest car manufacturer. The fit and finish of every detail in the cabin is at the top of the segment. Lexus does have a little bit more softer door panels and dashes, but as far as the wood trim and fit and finish overall the Volvo is the winner. The cargo room is a little bit down on size compared to some of its competitors but it’s great usable space. The features that come on the inscription model along with some of the packages available are an incredible value. Everything is super practical and easy to use. The safety technology is so much better than Infiniti and Lexus. The only thing that I would change is making the around view cameras the default when you put the car in reverse. It is a little cumbersome sometimes the switch from the back up camera to the 360° view which is the most convenient feature. Volvo also offers the best app experience for remote start, maintenance, vehicle location, and any other details you would want to know about your car. Plus they include it free for four years. My friends and family are super surprised at far Volvo has come along over the years. The XC60 is a true luxury stand out.
