Premium Gas for '04 | S60 Non-Turbo?

10

Asked by May 10, 2012 at 03:47 PM about the 2004 Volvo S60 2.4

Question type: General

I am considering buying a Volvo S60 manual shift, non-turbo.  Do I have to use premium gas?  I thought that it was primarily for the turbo.  

Are there any known problems with the manual transmission on the '04 S60?  

Thank you in advance!

Andrea

Oh the car has 100K on it ... ran smoothly but needs breaks - pads & rotors for sure. Other than that, quiet as a mouse with great acceleration etc. Not sure ... but all foreign makes have cars selling with many more miles and people seem happy enough. Mine comes with an extended 3 yr warranty for engine, transmission.

You can use low octane. These are good cars.

Andrea, I have a 2001 V70 wagon with a 5 speed in it. I have over 200,000 miles on it and it's still on the original clutch. It's a great car. Change the oil regularly and it should last a good long time. I run mine on regular when I can't afford mid-grade. I put mid-grade or premium when the engine needs to perform at its best like when heading into the mountains. The computer will adjust the timing to match the gasoline.
