Volvo For Life — Its a beast with 160hp! Fun to drive, comfy and safe.Cool leather seats with curtain airbags. Perfect for long drives. Did 2600km ( Dubai, UAE to Muscat, Ibra, Sinaw, Adam, Nizwa, Barkha in Sultanate of Oman) within 4 days and it was great!

Comfortable. Handling.

Cons

Electrical.

S60 T5 — Handles well. Quality is average - this car seems to have an electrical curse. Comfortable ride. Near luxury vehicle. Seems to be a bit on the expensive side to maintain. Brakes are a definite weakness since the rotors are too thin to machine and must be replaced.

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!

Pros

Cons

Running costs, FWD.

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.

Great Fuel Economy, Safe Sedan — I drove the Volvo S60 for about two years and greatly enjoyed the time I spent in this car. The car averaged an impressive 31 MPG on the highway and about 24 MPG city. the cabin is relatively quiet and all the controls are conveniently located on the dash and are in reach at all times. The steering wheel audio controls came in handy on a daily basis as well as the on board computer that displays car information including: average speed, distance before next gas fill up, and average and instantaneous fuel economy. The handling is well tuned and tight enough to allow maximum handling and the brakes stop the car on a dime.

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.
