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!

More "made In Germany" In This Car Than In A Volkswagen It Would Seem! — Braking is phenomenal, one of the best I've ever experienced! After owning this turbo, I will never go back to a car that stays stuck in its own shadow on freeway onramps! Runs on 87 octane - few cars in this performance category can make that claim! LoJack Early Warning System means you get a text message alert should your car be bumped/moved whenever your key fob is not in it!

Overall Awesome Volvo S60 — Have only had this car for a few weeks but so far it has been a blast! The most comfortable car i have ever sat in, the car is one of the fastest stock on the road. It handles more boat-like than my old 2003 Saab 9-3 which handled like a Porsche 911, but this is a nice change. This car also has substantial quality, built with luxury in mind and only the finest leathers and wood trim.

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.

Volvo S60 2.0t — Good acceleratoin, extreme comfort, permium sound system, repaired for 4K $ in 1 year (In Norway, not that much), done 265 000 KM. Great for both long roadtrips and driving to the store. Fantastic look and style. Best care ive owned so far..

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

Good comfort. Stonking sound system comes as standard.

Cons

Torque steers even in the dry. Gigantic turning radius.

45

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.
