This Is My Second Volvo S60... — ...the first one saved my life so I turned around and bought a second one. I love this car for me it's a nice blend of sporty luxury sedan that's fun to drive, amazingly safe and great cost to operate including excellent gas mileage. Highly recommend it. If you want more interior room in the back seat check out the Volvo S80. 5 ***** (stars)

Pros

An excellent family car with highest safety equipment..

Cons

1. It breakdown quite frequently during first year owns
2. Suspension not that comfortable as expected.
3. Acceleration sucks from still. But once on the move, beware mate!
4. No Xenon light
5. Gearbox sucks BIG TIME

Volvo S60 T5 (standard Car With K&n Drop Air Filter) — Acceleration.. too slow for a normal boost (0.8 bar) Braking- excellent Handling - well, its volvo, wat do u expect?? Build quality is fine, except there is squeaking sound below the glove-box, something very common for S60 cars No problem about the appearance, I Like! Gas mileage is ok, for a 247hp car, you would expect the gas consumption like one. But the maintenance is quite costly, every few months there will be something to be repaired or replaced. However, considering the age of the car (11 years), it is widely expected. FUN FACTOR: It depends. For highway, I'll rate the car at 8 out of 10. For A road and B road type, I will say 7 out of 10.

Pros

engine, sun roof, leather interior, tranny, turbocharger, handling, performance, the 12 speakers it comes with, and everything else imaginable.

Cons

the bumps on the road are extremely painful with the sports suspension.

Freaking Amazing — The Performance is staggering. The tiptronic transmittion puts you in control while making quicker shifts than you possible could with a manual. The appearance is exellent. I have the Volvo performance version which has 17" alloy wheels, fully leather interior, performance suspension, and one of the most powerful turbocharged 5 cylinder engines that has ever been put into a car. The traction control is amazing. You can go around any corner at any desirable speed. The sound of the car can not be described by any words. The sound of the turbo and the exhaust is exactly what you would expect from an European performance car.

Reliablility, Average to good gas mileage, Good lookin car

Cons

Soft body, easily dented (Jacob and Webs!)

2001 Volvo S60 — Never any major problems, just oil changes/ general maintenance. Also, still looks relatively new even though it's 8 years old because Volvo only very recently did a major redesign on the S60. Also, generally average to good gas mileage, also has large tank so I don't have to fill up very often.

Quality, Both in feel and looks.  Solid and well engineered.

Cons

Not for you if you need an off road vehicle - low clearance

Some People Are Ford Freaks, Some People Are Chevy Freaks. Me? I'm A Volvo Freak. — Solid, well designed. Pininfarina Design. Safe, and rides quiet. It's 10 yrs old and it rides like it's on air. A luxury sedan with the bones of a sports car, quick and fun. The seat are by far the most comfortable seats Ive ever seen. STC, WTC, 4 wheel disc, 5cyl Turbo. Tiptronic transmission, sport mode is a total different machine. very fun!

A Great And Fun Car To Have — Have a 2.0L Turbo. Great car. Handles really great. Great performance and can easily over cars here in LKA. Has clocked 145,000 kms and still drives like a champ. No troubles. Make sure to regularly do the services. Also check the bushes as they don't last very long

It's a very well built car.

Cons

I would avoid the car if you are going to leave it stock.

2001 Volvo S60 2.4t Lethally Injected Turbo Edition — Performance-factory performance is poor. Installed aftermarket exhaust. Acceleration is much better. Build quality-no problems with factory parts. Appearance- don't like factory appearance. I installed a black mesh grill. Painted wheels black. Blacked out head and tail lights. Cost of ownership- gas mileage is good after exhaust kit. I haven't had too many problems with the car. Fun Factor- stock the car is alright. It's a lot faster with exhaust kit. Very tight feel. Handles great. I'm waiting on a programmer and air box.

Good Value — Tons of air bags; did the european delivery program with it and that was awesome! One of a few cars with a manual transmission that is quick. Very comfortable inside. For a volvo the styling is exception, particularly the seats.

My First Volvo — I like the car and think it looks pretty good. But still it's no sportscar. Good torque from the engine and nice comfort. Breakes are good and fuel ecomomi not bad. I can recomend this engine over the T5. Not very fun to drive compared to smaller cars but ok.
