Volvo for Life
bobBysox - Fairfax, VA09/21/2010
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.

The S60 R does not disappoint, well other than the turning radius. The 3 position suspension setting is great, the Comfort setting is still sporty enough that I leave it there most of the time. Sport setting is great for spirited driving and the Advanced setting is very stiff and perfect for hard driving on smooth roads, but not very comfortable for everyday driving. The 300hp engine has plenty of power with slight turbo lag below 2000. Fuel economy is not quite as good as I hoped with an average of 19mpg for mixed driving while pure highway average can be as good as 26mpg with a steady foot and flat road. The all wheel drive definitely helps cornering performance and boy does this thing corner. The 4C system is always monitoring so just a slight step out of the rear end will bring out the corrections from the system, I�ve seen the stability control light blink on a couple times letting me know it�s doing something. Fit and finish is superb in this car with clever convenience features everywhere� they thought of everything. Rear seat leg room is minimal for tall people without moving the front seats forward a good amount. The front seats, while well bolstered, take a little while to break in under the thighs. Until they do, they lead to slight discomfort on long drives. The rear seat leg room and initial front seat comfort led to the lower score for comfort. The turning radius is pretty lousy though I found this out in research before making the decision to get this model. The R model was designed to compete with the well known German performance saloons and I think it�s right up there. All-in-all I�m very pleased with this car, you can�t beat the price for the performance.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago.

Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
