Pros: Excellent performance; horsepower and torque The most comfortable seats I've experienced Very ergonomic Cons: Turning radius is abysmal Having owned an '01 S4 previous to the S60R, I have high expectations for performance and styling. This lives up to it.
Overall, this is a nice car. If feels solid, handles well, and provides a comfortable ride. The controls are easily accessible. On the downside, premium gasoline is recommended. I use midgrade. Also, I miss the turning radius of my old car. The Volvo forces me to do 3-pt turns on a regular basis, especially in cramped parking lots. The glove compartment and console box are of adequate size, but the console box is a little awkward to access and the built-in cup holder does not always latch to the console box lid when it's opened. So, I have to open the lid and then lift the cup holder to get into the box. The console box has a auxiliary input jack -- a must have -- but for me that's not a convenient place for it. Worse yet, the "cigarette lighter" power jack is mounted on the outside back of the console box. It's handy for passengers in the back seat, but means that I need to run a cable from the back of the console box into the box and then out again if I want to charge my iPhone while I'm using it. It might sound like a minor inconvenience, but this design keeps me from loving this car. One other thing that might seem inconsequential is a lack of handy cubbie storage in the driver space. There is one oddly shaped long and narrow compartment, but it�s useful for not much more than a pen and small pad of paper. If your interested in a comfortable, solid ride... you would like this car. For me, it's the little things that leave me less than thrilled.
I traded my 1998 Volvo for Life for a 2007 Volvo S60, because the 1998 Volvo was costing too much to keep for life. The S60 is a marked improvement over everything in the 1998 version. It is "peppier", more comfortable, better features, and better looking. I'm happy with my decision.
