Better car than I thought it would be, quality of construction.
No need to slam doors to close them, just nudge them to close and its done.
Much faster than I thought it would be, once turbo kicks in, its about as fast I want to accelerate so merging onto the interstate is easily done.
Car is quiet and stable at speed so you have to watch the speedometer.
The car can creep up to 90+ without any really sense the car is going faster except you realize you are passing everyone else.
Just FYI, top speed I've read is limited by the computer at 138 MPH.
The S60 handles well, is comfortable and has a better sound system than I've ever had in my house.
I love my R car.

Buying my Volvo S60 R was the best idea I've had!! I LOVE LOVE my car. I would not have expected to enjoy driving as much as I do, this car makes all the difference in my day to day routine of driving. The car handles like a dream and I had no idea the quickness and ease of shifting. I've always enjoyed driving manual transmission and this car really renewed that pleasure. Not to mention how safe and comfortable I feel. I truly do feel like a kid with a new Radio Flyer that can't wait to go screaming down the first hill I see, thanks Volvo!

Very sporty car, it can easily hang with any BMW in this town. Plus I feel super safe on L.A. freeways. Excellant value with lots of class.
