Great Car that Needs to be Driven to Be Apprecaited by Woody on 12/07/2010. Trim: 2011 Volvo S60 T6 AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Delighted with our new S60. We drove the Audi A & S 4's, BMW 335Xi and the M-B 4Matic. The best drive of the 5 cars is the S4 but it also very costly. In our mind the second best was the S60 for much less $$$'s (neither my wife nor I have myopia so could see beyond BMW) The S60's seats are fabulous, the drive train (excepting the tranmssion) are as good as it gets, the Active Bending Lights are wonderful....
Cons: Much, if not alll of the electronic safety detritous should be left at the factory. It is costly and really a pain to live with. The Premium Sound package is not great. The standard media centre is good. Would love this car with a dual clutch transmisison> would put it into Audi S4 country. Ootions are not cheap.... ABL's should be standard.
Overall review: This is a really good, if not great (time will tell) car but you have to be discerning and be willing to put up with "why did you not buy a BMW"..... frankly, we liked this car better than the Audi A4 or the BMW 335Xi as did the two car nut couples we took out on our 'car search'. This is a vehicle that deserves to be 'heard' and needs to be driven to be appreciated.
