2012 S60 T5, white exterior with tan interior, purchased used at 96,000 miles. Drives like new. When looking for used cars, one does need to drive each car. I found many S60's with much lower mileage but in much poorer condition.
The car drives great. I average 32mpg with relatively cautious driving. It would be higher if not for the occasional burst of spirited driving on back roads. My previous cars have included BMW 325i, BMW 325iT, Chevrolet Cruze. The S60 does not have the same steering feel as these cars, but once you get used to it, it is a great drive. The seats are supremely comfortable (sorry Cruze), the engine has a tangible feeling of having power, the car stays planted on the road, it does not isolate you but involves you, is a very CALM place to be, and the car grows on you.
A couple of cautions: one would be that trim pieces may come loose. I have loose trim on the outside of the front windshield and the door, and both can be easily and inexpensively replaced. Another caution would be the dealership. Please purchase from a dealer who takes care of cars - all dealers are not equal. Mine was from Laurel BMW in Westmont, IL., and I highly recommend them. Don't restrict yoursekf to Volvo dealers. Getting the right dealership will make a difference. So, in summary, great car (drive them all and be choosy), and good dealer (visit them all and be choosy).
