2002 Volvo S60 2.4 Review
says:
The perfect first car. Bought mine with 105k miles on it and it still felt brand new. I tested the car out on a track and, amazingly, this car still managed its top speed of 150+ mph at the ripe old age of 14! The only things to go wrong with it are the CO2 sensor (not a functional issue, but the check engine light is stuck on now) and an oil trap leak (resulting in a slight whine in stop and go traffic on hot days), impressive for a 15 year old car that I have really thrashed. I was in one mild crash with a Civic, and that cars whole front left quarter was destroyed while only my headlight and some bodywork were damaged. I have made several 8+ hour non-stop trips in this car and it has never let me down while getting up to ~35 mpg on the long haul. It has never let me down mechanically in everyday use either, always starting and running on the first try even in subzero weather.

Power Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"With higher trim engines the S60 is properly quick, but the naturally aspirated 2.4 is just enough power for overtaking at highway speeds. and darting around town."
Handling Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"This Volvo has a proper suspension setup that generally handles its weight quite well. Everyone who gets in comments on how the car feels like it is hugging the ground. Pretty fun to thrash about on back roads if you know how to deal with understeer."
Looks/Style Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Apparently, these Volvos were styled to look like traditional Swedish woodworking, but however it was done it is very svelte."
Front Seats Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"Most comfortable seats I have found in or out of a car. Used to come out to my car to take naps in high school!"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"You can fit more in the trunk (and back seats if needed) of the S60 than you can in some hatchbacks or crossovers even."
Family Car Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"SAFETY. Watch the old crash test videos for this Volvo if you want a real laugh."
Value Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX better.
"Hondas hold their value for resale so well that you can get a 100k mile Volvo for the same price as a beater Accord when shopping for used cars."
Would Buy Ranked 2002 Honda Accord EX worse.
"I did buy it, and I certainly dont regret it."

2002 Volvo S60 2.4T Turbo Review
says:
Some special tools required.make sure timing belt is good. and PCV works well. Transmission smooth. Well built quality car heavy duty. Electronics get to be frustrating as car ages. Extra key must be programmed at dealer. more expensive to DIY but worth it.
