    2003 Volvo S60 2.4t — This car is a Volvo, so it definitely has the safety thing going for it. I would say that the best thing about this car is its passing ability. The turbo really kicks into action around 45mph. The car will leap up to 85mph in the blink of an eye which is very useful when you need to get around that old lady on a backroad. You have to run 93 octane which can be expensive, but it's not bad on the mileage ( I average 23mpg ). The back seat does not have an abundance of space, but the seats are comfortable enough that you don't mind all that much. The cargo space in the trunk is sufficient and it even has a grocery organizer that flips up from the floor. I am not crazy about the looks personally, but it is better than plenty of cars on the road. I have had issues with the AC, suspension wearing out prematurely, and some minor engine issues. There are trim strips that run the length of drip rails and down both the front and rear windscreens that are poorly made. I have replaced them twice because they crack and chip away. the worst thing about this car is its turning radius. I can pull a Uy in less space in my 97 F-150 than I can this car. I frequently have to adjust when pulling into parking spots and the tires, which are not fractory size rub in the wheel wells when I make a sharp turn.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This car is fun in a straight line, but the turning radius could use some help. I got this car when I needed a reliable ride, and it has been reliable, but I would not buy another.

    Cons: Parking is the worst thing about driving it.

    Sedan With A Turbo — This car has great quality and you rarely have to take it in to the shop. The turbo makes the car seem so extremely fast for a reasonable price. This car is extremely fun to drive, especially with the turbo

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Turbo Speed Fun

    Cons: Just a standard sedan, WITH A TURBO!!!! And that's a good thing by the way.

    Good Looks — Volvo s60 5-cyl 170hp 1993 Strong engine, yet no turbo and therefore a bit weak when pushed. Extremly good comfort, especially due to the fine chairs. Smooth and elegant design. Fun to drive if you like comfort more then sport. No repairs, only normal service. Light brown interior, fully equiped. 0,75L/mil - 1,1L/mil (city)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Comfort, design, safety

    Cons: Tight rearseat

    Good Car — It is a nice car, has good pick up. its more of a luxury car than a performance car, and it handles like it. The turning radius could be tighter, and more acceleration would be nice, once it get going, it goes great.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Handles well

    Cons: none

    Meeeep — Fast acc but not too high top speed. Very good brakes, handling is also good, the car behaves very stable. Build quality is very good. Gearbox is not as new at 20kkm. It's a fun car, the diesel engine really has a lot of power for quick overtaking.

    Pros: meep
