Pros: "acceleration, luxury interior, sound system, space"

Cons: "turning radius, cost to own, repairs"

"So far at 100K with my 2006 T5 I have had a small amount of issues. ABS module is faulty, O2 sensor went bad. However randomly the car doesn't want to work. Once the car died in the middle of the highway, once in a parking garage, and once it wouldn't start at all. The first time we towed the car to the local Volvo dealer, they ran every test they could and could find no issues, the car started right up for them. Essentially we paid $180 for a mediocre car wash. Besides those issues the car has been a blast to drive, with plenty of room for passengers and luggage. Great acceleration and breaking power but one heck of a turning radius (larger than an Escalade). Love the car, but just too much of a hassle in the long term."

Pros: "Fun to drive, great value, amazing pick up, safe"

Cons: "repair cost, turning radius, premium gas"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I absolutely love this car. Luxury from the bucket heated seats all the way to the premium sound system. Moon roof, climate control and all the options availible. Drives like a dream, quick and reliable. The turbo smokes mustangs on a daily basis. Safe and made of steel. You can really feel the weight of the car when you press the traction control button, it feels glued to the road in snow, absolutely no sliding. Only down fall is the repairs will get expensive as the car ages. Also the turning radius is bad and premium gas can get expensive. Highly recommended for entry level luxury car with some serious pick up speeds and safety."

"Comfortable, affordable, luxury, safety, power, this thing is nice. Bought it for my wife and I am jealous. It is extremely fun to drive and a solid car. the ONE complaint we both have is with a defect in the R design which makes the turn radius horrible. But if you can get over that, this car is an amazing drive."

"My first Volvo was the S 60 it was a 2004 and I loved it but had some issues with the car that were a bit costly to repair. My second Volvo was the XC 90 it was a 2005 and it was awesome but I do a lot of driving in the city and the mpg in town was a bit low and it was at a time when gas prices were crazy high. My third Volvo was once again the S 60 it is a 2008. I bought the car when it was two years old and it has been the most reliable car and the gas mileage is better than listed. In town I average about 22 mpg and the highway about 30 mpg. I have noticed the mileage is higher when I maintain 80 mph or higher. I have had the car up to 145 mph and I was literally gliding on air. My next one will be a C 70 however I will keep my S 60 for the reliability and safety features which Volvo surpasses compared to other vehicles especially in the luxury class."

"We bought this S60 used with 56K on it (1 wk ago), and the previous owners kept the car up nicely. WE LOVE THIS CAR! We just retired (bought new) a 1995 940 with 330,000 miles (20 freak'n yrs). The turning radius was AMAZING! So far, the S60 is being true to form, not the 940's turning radius, but oh man, this car floats down the street, It is a pleasure to drive, and talk about quality. We're thrilled. VOLVO makes an impressive vehicle. We are brand loyal because of our history with their product. I was offered a Bimmer from my husband once, and I turned him down. He now thanks me for using good decision metrics. He's buying a S60, and ditching his Vette."

"Third Volvo we've owned. Bought it after the last one saved our lives. You cant go wrong. One before this had 236,000 in it when I traded it and it was a daily driver for me. All we do is make sure we keep the oil changed and there's never been an issue with any of them."
