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.

This Year And Model Is A Real Gamble. — We bought this car at 135k less than a year ago, and we've now spent as much on repairs as we did on the purchase, including AAMCO transmission, radiator ($670). brake booster ($657) and spare key ($171). Now facing air bag ($800) and emission (100's) problems. This car seems to be falling apart mechanically. It had a clean CarFax report. We've owned earlier generation Volvos for years and have had an excellent experience. I assumed initial repairs would stabilize the car, but new problems keep surfacing. Maybe this isn't a 200,000 + mile car like the older ones... We aren't even addressing the engine mount problem that makes it handle roughly and noisily, because that doesn't relate to the mechanical integrity.

back seat

Good Car — nice car. Handles well, Have had very little problems with it. The only thing that I do not like is the back seat. It is a little cramppy. This car is enjoyable to drive, has a nice stereo system in it.

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.
