Awesome Car — Car looks are great. It has minimun road noise and is very comfortable in the ride. Acceleration is great, especially in this 2.5 Turbo model. The back seat would not be recommended for any with children above 4 years old. It does have a very large trunk and the overall car ownership is very postiive and I highly recommend this car!

My Volvo — It's has a very nice interior, comfortable ride, best driving position of any car I've ever owned, amazing performance for a mid sized sedan. And I love hearing the turbo.

Volvo S60 Highly Recomended — Great car for a sporty daily driver. Great ride. Good handling. Can put out 300whp with some mods. I would put this car in the same class as a bmw 3 class, THe fit and finish is top notch. The wood trim in the car is real burlwood.

king of the roads

Cons

dangerous

Perfect — king of the road. visit the world but almost all the time you're alone. performance: 1. accelerating with 24 tones on hill is very good (power), 2. also the braking is very good, with no fear to push the pedal, atention at transport, 3. handling depend on your skils, 1 second and you're out of road, do not strike the steering wheel. farewell...

Clear — I am the second owner. I drive about 9,000 miles a year. The average in town gas mileage averages about 21 mpg. The car handles well. It has good acceleration. I feel safe in the car. It has good control.

Pros

Superb performance, roadholding, great drivers car. Replaced with a 2011 Volvo S60 T5.

Cons

Can be a bit heavy on fuel in town driving, rear passenger legroom could be better.

Great Car! — Little niggles : Windows only have "one touch" function in front doors. Autolocking is a pay for "optional" extra, although this is just a matter of plugging in a computer connection, service consultants not very knowlegeable about their products and don't follow up on their promises. Unutilised front and rear dashboard space could be better put to use on increasing passenger cabin size.
