    I Love This Car! — I love my S60 2.5T-AWD! It has everything I need, good looks, dependability, AWD, great handling, and a sweet leather interior!

    Pros: There are so many pros.

    Cons: It's not as fuel efficient as I would like but I'll get over it!

    Great Cruiser — Very comfortable, perfect for long distances. Styling is elegant but not very distinctive. Good performance but not thrilling, automatic gearbox very slow. Good fuel consumption.

    Pros: Comfort, fuel consumption

    Cons: Not very exciting, slow gearbox

    Swedish Design...with Plenty Of Torque. — Only had this car a few months, and I cant pick a fault with it. Got the 2.4 D5 version, old 163bhp as apposed to the newer 185bhp. Performance wise, im astonished by the amount of power this car puts out, the amount of times i find myself sat on the motorway doing 80mph, tickle the accelerator and its up to 100mph. The newer version of the S60 utilises those extra BHPs to give this car even more power! I cant really see the need, however for that older generation of Volvo drivers towing caravans it makes sense. Once again this car is no Ferrari, but for a 2.4 diesel it certainly does put some speed out when you want to. One slight criticism could be the 1st gear ratio, but thats just preference. Oh and i still cant bring myself to turn the DSTC (Traction Control) off, need and airfield for that wild ride. The interior of the S60 makes you feel cacooned, wrapped in the cockpit of the most luxurious fighter jet on the planet. The seats are unbelievably comfortable, and ive been very tempted to buy a set of ebay to turn into kitchen chairs! Ive done 4 hour straight journeys in this car and felt like ive just gone to the shops round the corner. The Dolby Pro Logic 2 Surround sound system is also superb and infact that good i havent bothered upgrading any part of it, which i was planning to do after the poor quality S40 stereo and speakers. And the centre speaker on the front dash is a very nice touch. Its certainly a long distance cruiser, built for comfort and ease of use. But for a diesel with a bit of power, more comfort than a 5 series, more reliable than a merc, and cheaper with most of the mod cons as standard it was the only decision for me.

    Pros: Quick diesel, long cruiser, great fuel economy, comfort, style and reliabilty.

    Cons: Its not the best background image with a Volvo badge....but i couldnt care less!

    Its Good But Needs A Lot Of Work — This was my first car. its sorta slow but its a gorgeous car with lots of potential to go really fast. the turbo is nice to have but its too small. its very fun to drive, it has great gas mileage and it can fit alot of people. Im kinda going for a VIP style right now but its getting kinda messy. it has moderate acceleration with great handling and a good clean sound. ITS A WORK IN PROGRESS

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its super fun

    Cons: its a little slow :(
