Volvo S60 is the worst car I have experienced in my 25 years of driving experience. I brought it in 2001 for about US$50,000+ (Taiwan price); and soon after the price of new S60 was dropped by about US$10,000, severely damaging my resale value. When the car is about 8 years old and 80,000 km, its parts started a spree of breaking down. So far, more than US$10,000 of repair bills (regular maintenance not included) have been accumulated; and the transmission is acting up. Unbelievable! A brand used to be known for dependability but not the look seems to have swapped for the worse.2 Replies - Latest reply on 05/26/2010Add reply
I have purchased 3 vehicles from Volvo of Nashville, even when they were music country Volvo. They have always been honest, courteous and respectful. Sometimes a little higher than independents, however, I often utilize their courtesy van or loaner if I cannot wait.

With my latest purchase I received free maintenance for 5 years.... How can you beat that.
Why??? Purchased my XC-90 in 2006. I have replaced my wheel bearings 3 times now. 21,000, 43,000 and now 70,000. (My latest bill was $840.00) A Volvo dealer showed us a large section of their garage that was filled with defective wheel bearings. We have had numerous major problems with my car. I wish we had done more research on this car. You will spend a lot of time in the garage, and very little time driving this car.10 Replies - Latest reply on 05/22/2011Add reply
When folks look at increasing gas mileage, I suggest they look at the Volvo S60. This is a medium-sized car with a great safety record. I get between 24-26 miles in town driving and 30-32 on highway driving. The car is NOT a compact but gas mileage compares favorably with many of the small compacts.

*Total 7800 miles (ignoring mileage when I took deliveries, repair mileage, etc.).
*I get an average of 1,560 miles between dead battery no-starts.
*To date, I have 18 days loss-of-use due to my no-starts.
ONE lemon?? No, first one was replaced by Volvo. My 2nd one is currently sitting at the dealership.
