I am a very happy customer who purchase a 2007 Volvo S60. Love the style and the luxury.
This was an absolute steal with 22k miles in pristine condition. Car has all of the options: Sports Trim, Heated Seats, Surround Sound and a booming system, Sunroof, etc.. While it still maintains the look of an S60, it definitely has a sportier trim, different rims, spoiler, exhaust, and what-not from your average S60. On the interior, the two-tone leather seats, brushed aluminum trim, and blue chrome dials definitely set it apart. Since my wife has owned the '04 S60 for five years, I can speak with authority about the difference in the overall driving experience which is nothing short of night and day. While I always thought that car had a nice, even punchy acceleration, with that European luxury sedan kind of handling, the R blows it out of the water. Even in the comfort mode, with the sport setting off on the shifter, you can feel the extra hundred or so hp. Turn all that on, and it becomes a speeding ticket machine. If you're doing 65 on the freeway, and punch it to pass a car doing 75, you never feel that immediate drop in power as the car shifts to a lower gear -- it just engages the turbo, and screeches tires, giving you both minor whiplash, and the satisfaction that you just owned some dude in a seventy thousand dollar beemer. As others have said, the turning radius is the only thing that leaves something to be desired, but you get used to it. It's a small price to pay for what you get. The only other con is that if you do manage to find one of these (I spent a few months in search of this one) with decent mileage, it's probably one of the few left out there, 'cause they ain't making them any more. So drive carefully...
I am happy with my Volvo S60. It has plenty of pep and provides a smooth ride. The interior layout is logical and easy to use. CONS: This car has very little leg room for back seat passengers. Its cornering radius is much wider than expected, it does not corner like a high performance car. The in town mileage is low twenties compared to highway mileage in the thirties.
