I heard the S60 has a very wide turning radius. Has that been a problem for anyone? Also, I heard the car has alot of weight in the front. Does that cause any handling problems?

It does have a wide turning radius for such a small car. It's not a problem, it can be annoying on occasion. Just go around the block instead of a U turn.

Absolutely too dangerous for making highway U turns where speeding oncoming cars are coming at you real fast. This car requires four lanes or more to make a U turn that my V70 and 850 wagons could easily do with only one and a half lanes. Also takes 3 1/2 times longer to park in the same parking garage stall. Way worse than a pickup truck. No wonder Volvos arn't selling anymore, for the feature that made Volvos popular (tight turning radius) is gone.
