A great vehicle

2006 Volvo S60 Nicknox - San Diego, CA 09/30/2009

I love my Volvo S60. It handles well, has a great interior and is very comfortable. The turning radius isn't great, which requires adjustment. The backseat isn't particularly big, but the vehicle as a whole is still a great value and has outstanding safety ratings.

2005 Volvo S60

2005 Volvo S60 Uncle Mikey - San Antonio, TX 08/23/2009

I did a lot of research before buying this car, and it really paid off. You'll read a lot of negative stuff about the S60, but you have to consider that most people tend to write a review when something goes wrong, rather than when everything is perfect. So all the good stuff I read about is what I'm experiencing with this car. Here are my positives and negatives. Positives: Very comfortable inside! The back seats are cramped, that part you'll see in almost every review, but you can move the front seats up quite a bit and still be comfortable. This allows plenty of room in the back, even for a 6' tall person. The engine has plenty of power! I have the automatic and it shifts very smoothly, without any jerks or jumps. And the turbo performance is by far way better than on the 2006 Passat I traded in for it. With the Passat (2.0l inline 4, 200bhp) when turning a corner, or any situation where I was coasting, then needed to apply the accelerator, there was always like a 2-3 second lag before the power kicked in. With the Volvo, there is absolutely ZERO lag! I would think I'm driving a V6, and not a turbocharged I5, if I didn't know better. So I wouldn't believe any of the stories you read about turbo lag. Maybe it's just that it's 1000 times better than the Passat, and it's just what you're used to, but I experience what feels like no turbo lag to me. The Volvo is also pretty quite on the inside. It's no soundproof vault, but it's pretty darn quite. The suspension is tuned nicely as to give you a comfortable ride while still giving you good cornering and feedback. I've also read negative comments about the dual climate control system, but I also find that works very well. And I was very pleased to find that the A/C vents in the back are located at face level, rather than blowing from the knee area. Rear passengers really appreciate that! Finally, I'll talk about the fit and finish. It is outstanding with this car! When the doors and hood shut, it's like closing a vault. The real wood trim looks very nice, as well as the leather on the seats and doors. Everything is put together very tightly and neatly. You'd be hard pressed to find anyplace in this car where two parts of anything come together and don't match up perfectly. Negatives: I can really only think of a couple of negatives, and they're pretty well documented in other reviews as well. One is the trunk opening. It's a really large trunk, but the actually opening is a little smallish. But they really did the best they could given the long, sweeping back window of the car. The other negative is the turning radius, which you've probably already read is quite small. Just get used to it and don't get yourself in a situation where it'll get you into trouble. Also, when you make a tight left hand turning circle, the front right tire will rub up against the wheel well. Don't be alarmed, as this is apparently by design. You can 'fix' it by modifying the wheel stops for the front wheels, but that will just decrease your turning radius further. Conclusion: If you're looking for a really great European automobile at a great price, look no further than the 2005 Volvo S60. As you can see from above, the pros way outweigh the cons, and the cons are rather insignificant. Do yourself a favor and get yourself one of these cars! You'll understand the motto - "Volvo for Life."

Gorgeous and Safe

2004 Volvo S60 Belkis - Miami, FL 11/20/2006

Everyone likes things that are bad for them...for example: fatty foods and fast cars. Well with the Volvo I feel I get the best of both worlds.....a car that is light on it's wheels and at the same time safe! I love my car and wouldn't trade it for any other and this is coming from a woman that has owned all sorts of luxury cars. Not only is it nice to look at, but it's great to drive as well! Excellent choice of car.
