"Don't bother with the hype around the "R". The steering is terrible. The turning radius is ludicrously insufficient and Volvo is aware of the problem and refuses to fix, or should I say, has no solution. The car is cramped and not very comfortable. The car is quick and fun to drive in certain situations, but being an S4 owner and having driven other cars in this class; my suggestion would be to look elsewhere. I've owned 4 Volvos, two that I loved and two that just didn't cut it."

"This car is amazing to drive. It is incredibly fast and smooth. I used to hate Volvo's, but they changed it up withthis one!! Only problem was issues with the clutch. It had to be replaced two times and still having problems. Otherwise this is a fabulous car, if you have the need for speed."

"I am not normally a car guy, however I test drove multiple vehicles before settling for the S60 Volvo. Well not settling, purchased. This vehicle has been reliable, quick and MPG has been fantastic up near 35mpg freeway. No complaints what so ever!"

"I bought this car new 3 years ago. In the past, I seem to tire of a car after 3-4 years and begin looking for another. Not so with this one - I love this car. It is very solid and comfortable to drive. (note - only complaint is a very tight turning radius; makes it difficult to make a U-turn) Never had any problems with it, and feel very safe on the road with all the extra safety features. Highly recommend."
