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.

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)

Beautiful Car; Good Power; Terrible Resale — Top of the range S60 that is no longer available. First car I own that has GPS - pops up from the dash and very cool.

Cons

Is rather boring though.

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.

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

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.

Cons

Volvo S60 — This car has been an awesome car, I treat my cars rather harsh and this car handles all I throw at it! I travel up to 70,000km a year, the breaks are astounding with great handling! The only problem I have had is a bolt came loose on the tappet cover (random) which then covered the top of the motor with engine oi in the process cracking all 5 coils, I replaced said coils with new ones ($120 each) myself and since have had no more problems over the 4 years of ownership and can not wait to buy another! The only over cars I would consider to replace this car would be a S40, S80,Volvo's or a Citroen C6.

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.
