2012 Volvo S60 T5Review
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.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
