Cons

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

305

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
