I owned and drive this car for 15 years. It was such a reliable car and never left me stranded. The interior stays nice, except for the center console scratches easily. The paint did well until I moved to the California sun then faded a bit on the trunk lid. The turning radius stinks, otherwise I would've given it 5 Stars.

This is a good looking, nice driving, and economical vehicle. I had driven a older Buick Regal and thought driving this smaller car would not be as comfortable. But to my surprise it is. Good gas milage as I average about 29 mpg. My only con would be the cost and inconvenience of getting a spare key. It is laser cut and programmed to match the chip in the car.

This was the car I was looking for and when I saw it I did not consider any other. In have owned other Volvos and I know what to expect from them. They are reliable with very little problems and will keep on running with proper care. This car is easy to handle rides smooth and has lots of power for interstate travel. This is a car that I would recommend to anyone who wants a midsize car, and it looks so good on the highway.

Bought this car with high miles (150,000+) what a mistake!!!! Issues with a/c, transmission (although I believe this to be related to sensors & such, not necessarily a rebuild issue) other than that we love this car, rides nice gets excellent gas mileage (30+) but nearest dealer is over 2hrs away. Hard to find a decent mechanic that u can trust. If I had a mulligan I would definitely use it so I could buy a different car!!!!!!!

I've had this car for 5 years, I bought it used at 80k miles. I am currently at 130k and its still running great. I have been in a few accidents... one where I watched my bumper fly over the front of my car into the car I was being slammed into. In the end my daughter was safe and although we couldn't drive away it was still not totaled. This car is amazing, drives wonderfully, keeps my family super safe, looks great and keeps my bum super warm... Oh and the trunk space is AWESOME!! I'm thinking about trading it in for the XC90 but still not sure... it's just such a great car.

GREAT CAR - EVEN WITH HIGH MILES!

I bought this car with 123,000 miles from a used dealer. It was not well taken care of by previous owners so I had to put about $2000 worth of work into it. The Volvo dealership did NOTHING for me so I had to outsource to a certified German car mechanic. My car came back running PERFECTLY! At 143,000 miles it is still going strong!! The electrical system such as door locks, windows, and headlights seem to have issues but it is an easy fix with my mechanic. VERY reliable for the price!!

I purchased my Volvo from my mother who sold it to me at a fair price, since then I could have just made a new car purchase without having to leave it in a shop for repairs. Not only does it cost alot to repair, the dealership just thinks you should expect that kind of cost when owning this vehicle. At the moment at 122000 miles the transmission is out and I have had to wait forever to get one. Volvo has recieced an email from me about this and will not assist in the repair. I will not purchase another one.

My Volvo s60 has been great. It?s very comfortable to drive, has a great ride and every accesory I'd need and then some. When I want to enjoy driving (a little faster than normally) the turbo provides a great boost of speed that reminds me my car is about more than comfort. I have been an Acura fan in the past and like this car just as much, maybe even a bit more.

Bought the car certified pre owned from Volvo at 52k. I have 105k on it now and still love the car. The AWD is helpful for winter in New England. Seats are incredibly comfortable. Looks great and gets great gas mileage (I get just under 25 MPG combined). I've just had some expensive repairs (new brakes, timing belt) at 100k, but I'm expecting the car to go for at least 200k so it's worth the investment. Surprisingly good sound system, too.
