S60 — Bought the S60 in May 2007. Liked the car as soon as I saw it. It was a 2.0T so performance was pretty good. Would have been better had it been a bit lighter though. Used it mainly for going to work and the occasional road trip. Wasn't particularly fun to drive and being front wheel drive there were some grip issues, but it was very comfortable, well equipped and great at motorway cruising. Had a couple of minor issues but overall reliability was very good. Running costs were the main issue. Servicing and insurance wasn't cheap and it averaged 26mpg. I'd had the car almost a year when I sold it. I didn't want to sell it but I couldn't justify keeping it. Overall this car did cost me a fair amount of money but I don't care cos when someone asks me what my first car was I'll say it was a Volvo S60, and it was brilliant.

Sleek, Smooth And Safe. — This car outshines many others in its class, such as the BMW 525 or Lexus 350, providing wonderful, easy access extras. As one of the safest cars on the road with the longest of lives (many reach 300-500K!), it is well worth the reasonable price.

Sleek — I loved the car except that I had to buy a new transmission one month after I got it because the dealer said it had a perfect tranny. The brakes are awesome. I always felt safe while driving the car. ANd always had a blast driving the car.

Pros

Good comfort. Stonking sound system comes as standard.

Cons

Torque steers even in the dry. Gigantic turning radius.

More Power Than The Front Wheels Can Handle. — Company car which was not really my choice. Comfy and competent cruiser, but 250bhp driving the front wheels = torque steer city. Even in the dry and in a straight line.

A Wolf In Sheep Clothing!! — The Volvo S60 T5 is superb. The 2.3 Turbo engine produces 250bhp which is quick enough on our english roads. The Ford Focus ST has the same engine but that looks quick where as the T5 is a true wolf in sheeps clothing. I have a family but a thirst for speed when they are not in it, so i get the best of both worlds, safety and sporty. The police around the world use these and its obvious why. I have owned 4 T5s and all have had over 100k miles and all have felt the same, strong and responsive. The fuel is acceptable too, with 350miles per tank i am happy with that. You can also pick up second hand ones very cheaply, alot of car for your money. I love em!! The only bug bare i have is the turning circle, it is very poor and you have to do a 5 point turn rather than a 3!
