I've always liked the new Volvo style, but the new S60 in 2012 came out blazing. I had the premium design, all leather interior with, at the time, first auto-stop and accident prevention feature that was standard on all Volvos. That alone made the car 3X safer than other similar cars in the price range. The handling was always so smooth, love the turning radius, there wasn't any noise or crackling like in cheaper brands. I love that the interior surfaces were all soft, not cheap hard plastic, it makes a huge difference when you get into and out of the car banding, hands or feet by accident. It felt like the quality was all around me. I loved the connectivity to my iPhone, was always so seamless, and the trunk with folding seats was A+.
Many good features including GPS, backing up camera, good sound system and safety rating.
I bought a used 06 R with 13k miles on it and a month later got crashed into. If you have an R and this happens, please take it to a dealer for repair...it is a complex machine not everyone can repair. Turning radii like a school bus. Good accel but no sports car for sure. Very good(Bembrow) brakes. No room in back seat and not much in trunk. You definitely feel the road in this car...rough road, rough ride. Goes thru front tires quickly (30k to 40k).Tires that come with the car (Pirelli) terrible in snow. After 6 months I finally got my car back like new and with new tires have enjoyed it much. However I had to get use to the clutch.Not as user-friendly as Japanese car stick shifts. Would I buy again?...probably not but God willing, I will enjoy it at least another 50k miles. Ride is so much more solid than most of its competitors...call it "road-worthy".
