Great looks and performance

by Tim from Orange ma | August 25, 2019

I’ve owned this vehicle for two years and am completely happy with it. Performance is excellent, mpg is very good and it’s comfortable. I have 35000 miles on it and I still get a lot of complements about how sporty it is.

A technological nightmare that Volvo can't repair

by Had Enough of Volvos from Panama City, FL | July 18, 2019

Bought two 2012 S60 T6Rs new. Please don't believe the glowing reviews on this model. Sold one while still under warranty. Repeated trips to dealer (a 250-mile round trip) on both cars. Entire Nav screen on one had to be replaced. Dealer had good customer service until remaining car was out of warranty, but almost all major fixes were temporary (battery drain, tire sensor warning, door handle sensors). The geniuses who designed the tire sensor warning forgot to add a feature that tells you which wheel is the problem. Dealer is unable to accurately diagnose the problem sensor, so when the vehicle goes out of warranty, the customer must pay to remove all wheels, then remove all tires, replace all sensors, and then re-assemble everything. After going through this procedure twice and replacing all sensors with OEM sensors, the tire warning light is still on. All major problems that were supposedly "fixed" under warranty (except metal shards in the steering gearbox) eventually returned, and Volvo and the dealer (Centennial Motors in Pensacola, FL, aka Centennial Imports, aka Volvo Cars of Pensacola) disclaimed any responsibility. Dealer began treating my wife and I with contempt and started charging us big time for useless diagnostics when problems persisted after expiration of warranty. Over $2,000 in diagnostics and non-warranty repairs since car went out of warranty (less than 50,000 miles, but more than 5 years), and the same problems persist. My mechanic thinks the CCM (central control module) is part of the problem. Bad CCM is an item that only the dealer can replace and reprogram at an astronomical price. The bad CCM is a problem that the dealer should have recognized while the car was under warranty. Dealer addressed battery drain (seven batteries in three years) by disabling and by-passing the Sirius radio feature. That was four batteries ago. Dealer at first denied doing this half-assed fix, however my mechanic found the disconnected wires and the jumper cable. When a battery is replaced, it is necessary to reprogram the computer system on this poorly designed vehicle!! This model is a technologically-complex mechanical nightmare that Volvo and the dealer cannot, or will not, repair, in or out of warranty. Volvo is well-aware of the numerous defects in this model. They appear on the web and on Volvo service bulletins. The dealer plays dumb, scratches its head, and tells the customer "tough s---" when these problems reappear out of warranty. I finally gave up and got rid of the car. Owning a Volvo has been one of the most frustrating and expensive experiences in my life, and I will never own another Volvo.

Just purchased for our daughter.

by GaSLM from Atlanta, Ga | July 03, 2019

Purchased this car for our 17 yr old daughter after someone hit her in her Honda Accord and totaled it. She wanted a car that felt sturdier to her and the Volvo fit the bill! We are very pleased with the purchase.

2017 Volvo S60 Overview

The Volvo S60 is a five-seat luxury sedan that goes toe-to-toe with the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It's available with front- or all-wheel drive and a choice of four-cylinder engines, one of which features a supercharger and a turbocharger. Volvo also sells a long-wheelbase version of the S60 dubbed Inscription and an off-road-themed S60 Cross Country.

New for 2017
Volvo has simplified the S60's engine lineup, reducing the number of available engines to two. There's also a new entry-level Dynamic trim that includes leather sport seats, a moonroof, xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights, headlight washers, 18-inch alloy wheels, and R-Design front and rear styling cues.

Significant Standard Features

Significant Available Features
S60 Inscription
Volvo, which is owned by Chinese auto manufacturer Zhejiang Geely, was the first luxury brand to export a car from China to the U.S. with the Inscription, which is an S60 with a stretched wheelbase for an additional 2.9 inches of rear legroom. The Inscription is also more luxurious and is offered with front- or all-wheel drive.

What's Special
S60 Cross Country
The S60 Cross Country uses the same basic playbook as Volvo's other Cross Country models but in a sedan format: standard all-wheel drive, a raised suspension and SUV-like styling cues. It's powered by a 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
