2012 Volvo S60 T5 Review

Maintenance Cost:


Smooth even acceleration. Braking and handling are good. Quiet engine. No noticable vibration. Nice appearance. BLIS works well. Free maintenance for 5 years. Averaging 28.5 mpg. Lots of options. Good price. It can use regular gas. Other cars in this class require premium. A big expense today.


No spare tire or well for one. Back seats a little tight. Right wiper doesn't go all the way down. Gas cap doesn't fit into the holder.


An Impressive Car And Good Value For The Money. The T6 Felt Too Front Heavy. — I love the turbo and the surge of power when I need it. I'd probably never buy a car without a turbo. The car is fun to drive. I feel safe driving it. I got the leather and sunroof and recommend it. The blind spot indicator works well. The tires supply a good road grip. The sport shift setting gives you much improved acceleration and much more fun.
