Will Always Buy Another Volvo! — Comfortable seats (front and back), power seats, heated seats. Very good audio system. Great handling, good fuel economy. Easy service. Sunroof is great addition. Dependable car in all weather. Solid feel in the ride, closing the doors. Leader in airbag technology even in 2002!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A comfortable, reliable, luxury car

Cons: We have not had any problems so no cons.

This Car Would Be Great For Anyone. — This is a nice, safe car for anyone to drive. You'll definitely save money on gas when you switch to this car. On the other hand though, it does cost a lot to maintain. Being a foreign car makes it difficult to get cheap parts for the car, but if you keep it running well that shouldn't be a problem.

Pros: This is a great car to have. Volvos are very reliable and safe cars to have.

Cons: The maintenance for this car is pretty expensive. I just can't afford it, so I've decided to sell it.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Provides luxury options, fine design and class without the outrageous price tag.

Cons: Very few.

Volvo S60--safe, Reliable And Good Looking — I joined the Volvo club--I'm one of those that loves my car and doesn't want to replace it. After 11 years, It still looks great (no rust on the outside) and I feel so incredibly safe with it. AWD gets me where I need to go during the VT snow season. I will likely get another S60 when I do decide to move on.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks great--even 11 years later!  Unpretentious, safe

Cons: Maintenance costs  (avg $1,500 / year over past 10 years)

Very Nice Car If You Can Afford The Maintenance And Live By A Volvo Dealership. —

I bought this car in 2005 or 2006 with roughly 50,000 miles on it. I had issues with the Thermostat going out within the first week. Shortly thereafter, there was a recall on the fuel pump, had to get that fixed. I live 30 minutes away from where I work, so getting this vehicle worked on by someone who was willing and capable and that could do it in less than a week was a task. I did take it to the Volvo dealership a few times to have maintenance and repairs done, as much as I could. It's not easy to schedule an appointment with them on Saturdays, (we always got the, "if we don't have enough appointments for Saturday, we don't open the service department"), and it seemed like every other week something was needing to be fixed, and I couldn't keep taking off to repair my car. Apparently, there is a problem with the transmission over so many miles are put on it, it does what's called a "shift flare". This mostly happens in 1st and 2nd gear (mine's an automatic). The rpms will go up to about to 4 or 5, but nothing happens with the acceleration, then the car suddenly slams into gear, jerking the entire car forward. I've been told it just needs a software update, which you can really only do at the dealership, which is 2 hours away, which is hard for me to do. At this point, I've learned to deal with it, and I drive it like a stick. When the rpms start to go up, I let off the gas until it pops into gear. This seems to help a lot with the jerking. I now have roughly 181,000 miles on it, and can't wait to get rid of it. It seems like it's a ticking time bomb at this point, with a ton of other problems in addition to the transmission. Bottom line, if you have the time, money, and live by a Volvo dealership, this is a good car, otherwise, buy a different car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's very stylish, and has a lot of features. I've always felt very safe in this car, and have been in 3 wrecks over the past 7 years, and was glad I was in a Volvo.

Cons: Very expensive to maintain, takes twice as long to be worked on. The closest Volvo dealership to where I live is roughly 2 hours away, making maintenance a major hassle. No one around here wants to work on the car, not even do an oil change. Once one little thing goes out or goes bad, it's like a domino effect, and the repairs just keep piling up.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: styling, quality, speed, comfort, reliability, luxury

Cons: handling, aging.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I loved the looks and how comfortable the car was.

Cons: didnt like the handleing in snow.

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: *SAFETY* in a word

Cons: If your driving record can't stand another speeding ticket - don't!
