Car owners experiences
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
overall though, i am happy with my purchase.
not just the looks but the price tag was made them both weep.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
i have a 2014 chevy equinox awd and a 2011 honda crv, the volvo is nicer to drive, but issues, such as volvo states they need to do oil changes, mpg falls short, the blue-tooth/entertainment system is years behind the others.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster
was deciding between a '10 xc60 and '09 bmw x3-both slightly used and great prices.
the electronics started acting weird, and there was a mysterious leak in the windshield that i couldn't find, and the dealerships claimed they couldn't find it either, even tho every time it rained i had water dripping down my windshield.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
the cup holders are also positioned so that can they interfere with the gearshift.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
it was fine while under warranty for 4 years/ 50, 000.
less than 1000 miles and black sutt in tail pipes.
upgraded my car to polestar rating (software upgrade) my car came with sirius satellite and currently get 20.8mpg with plus (89) gasoline with ethanol can get up to 23 mpg if i use strictly (non ethanol gas and clamp down on my lead foot!)

no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.

it is a very sharp looking little suv, and for its class, it is reasonably priced!
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
it is very comfortable and with the t6 it's quick off the line.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
this is, hands down, the most luxurious, comfortable, enjoyable vehicle i've ever owned (prior cars include: 08 bmw x3, 04 acura tl, 99 bmw 3 series sedan).
chose the naturally aspirated 6 and there's plenty of power without the turbo (tested both passing uphill on rt. 280 near livingston, nj, those who have driven it can appreciate the statement).
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
but the volvo handles so well in much greater comfort (is this a function of age?), and elegance and relative silence that i cannot imagine a better bargain.
solid, beautiful (r-design a must) and full of amenities.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
i owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
i do not recommend this car, unless you have a lot of spare time and money to waste.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
for years volvo did an ok job in the performance, but in the last decade they have really been improving the performance of their cars.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
the turbos are water-cooled and are just for the lower rpm, not like the high pressure turbos in audi and vw that make the engine last less than 50k miles and no need to oil cool them by idling the car for 60 seconds before turning it off.
dealer says it's the tire tread and is expected.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
volvo makes a great quality product for a good price.
overall experience- only one word 'excellent' i just leased a new xc 60 awd with the new drive-e t6 engine with the turbo and supercharger with the 8 speed transmission.
the car is a very rough ride, so if you have back issues i would look at something else.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
this is my 4th volvo and i have always enjoyed their style and solid feel.
awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.
it only has 60,000 miles on it and has been lovingly cared for and it has turned into an unreliable lemon!
this car is a great value and has all the extra safety features i wanted in the car at a much lower price then bmw and audi.
volvo makes a great quality product for a good price.
i love running errands and taking long drives because it great on gas mileage and it is so nice to look at both inside and outside.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
the seats are very comfortable and the build is much better than the ford i traded from.
when i look at buying a car i look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all i look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion.
the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
have in and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical give the best seating position for a human can ask pickup mileage in city and on highway best feature city safety impact protection protection dual zone ac with dual pollen air filt
i went with the t6 for the extra handling and body design.
lol no trouble car went right through and i was only one to make it to work period.
i traded in my infiniti ex35 for this car and i will never look back.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.
affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
the subaru uses a camera that can easily be blinded if you are driving into the sun.
however if you plan on having more kids good luck to them being comfortable in the back seat!
wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).

our sticker starts with a t6 awd, then adds the climate pkg, convenience pkg, sport seats, proximity pkg, 20" titania wheels, metal flip-down cargo cage, harmon kardon sound & piano black inlays, totaling over $50k.
if, like me, you are smitten by volvo's beautiful r-designs, make sure you spend time in those "special r-design sport seats" to make sure you can get comfortable.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
i get about 28 mpg on the highway using regular gas.
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
have in and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical give the best seating position for a human can ask pickup mileage in city and on highway best feature city safety impact protection protection dual zone ac with dual pollen air filt
i get 17-18 mpg around town, and 19-20 mpg on the highway however, i do have a heavy foot.
i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
great to look at, but not that comfortable on the inside.
i had narrowed my search to a acura rdx or the volvo xc60 and found the safety features, the nimble and quick handling, sleek exterior design and the straight-forward, understated but more than adequate interior won out in the volvo.
this car really kicks and has smooth power throughout all stages of driving (highway, local, cruising, etc.).
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
i drive 160 miles a day, mostly on interstate.
haven't had a chance to test it out in winter conditions, counting on the volvo pedigree there when buying this car, i had also seriously considered and test drove the audi q5 and bmw x3.
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.
comfortable, classy, fuel-efficient, satisfying to drive, and, as long as it\u2019s reliable, i\u2019m looking forward to my three daughters using up whatever\u2019s left of it when i\u2019m done.
there are a few things i would change about the interior design though.
i then had a problem where the car would not read most of my audio files on my usb, and then if there was a whole folder that it couldn't read it would completely stop working and i needed to stop the car and turn it off and on, (sometimes that didn't res
just got xc60 r-design in passion red, and did a test drive to compare r and "normal".
i peeked in when the volvo dealer was doing oil and man was spraying the unused oil funnel with some kind of clear looking stuff.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
i then had a problem where the car would not read most of my audio files on my usb, and then if there was a whole folder that it couldn't read it would completely stop working and i needed to stop the car and turn it off and on, (sometimes that didn't res
one mechanic said it's a 5000lb car you have to gun it (!!).
i listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.

i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.

ours had a sticker price of $42,700 and we paid $38,600.

i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
lol no trouble car went right through and i was only one to make it to work period.
the engine does need oil added between the 10,000 mile interval oil changes.
r-design is a blast.
there was an issue with the alignment but that was resolved (i had to take it to the dealer because when i took it to firestone 2x in 2 different states the car still didn't drive straight).
overall experience- only one word 'excellent' i just leased a new xc 60 awd with the new drive-e t6 engine with the turbo and supercharger with the 8 speed transmission.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
paid about 47k for the platinum package and in general pretty nice car.
a very exciting and comfortable car in my sound system is too awesome leather key is just the car is an safety and comfort power and looks are
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
if you can swing it, i definitely recommend the t6 version with the 300hp, 325 lb torque turbo inline 6 engine.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
solid, beautiful (r-design a must) and full of amenities.
the rdx had a dull feel to it compared to the energy and zip of the xc60 and the rear-end design of the rdx fell short.
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
i am only 5'4" and am incredibly uncomfortable when i sit in the backseat with my son, to the point where you have to sit sideways because your legs have practically no room.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
the price was considerably lower than comparable vehicles.
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
the gps stinks too.
a customer service rep emails me regularly, making sure all my questions and issues are handled.
bluetooth is clear as a land line and auto-sync when i get into the car.
wow..... look elsewhere or do your research after a week of driving the xc60, i noticed a problem with the transmission, a hesitation when accelerating from a complete stop/speeding up to pass etc.
the volvo brand has always meant quality and safety.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
quiet on highway.
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
dealer has been great.
when you see a volvo on the road (especially the new ones) you can tell it's a volvo because of the sleek styling of it.i think that volvo does a great job of making their cars head turners.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
when i got to the car dealer, they made a different gimmick and i end up paying a high price, even beyond what i intended to.
after 1500 miles am getting 21.5 to 22.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving.
gas mileage is a little disappointing, 16 in town, 23 on trips.
the bluetooth and technology interface works perfectly, and i find the controls to be fairly easy to navigate.

when i got to the car dealer, they made a different gimmick and i end up paying a high price, even beyond what i intended to.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
the interior looks great in two-tone leather, ergonomics are fine, and at the present it is rated the most reliable of the european brands.
but now at 73,000 miles i'm beginning to wonder if it's not the beginning of the end.
i now have about $8,000 worth of things to fix on the damn thing, including the rear differential, and so needless to say i'm looking for a new car.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.

the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
one unexpected finding was the seat comfort.
the driver/passenger heat/ac lacks synching which has become fairly common.
upgraded my car to polestar rating (software upgrade) my car came with sirius satellite and currently get 20.8mpg with plus (89) gasoline with ethanol can get up to 23 mpg if i use strictly (non ethanol gas and clamp down on my lead foot!)
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
however if you plan on having more kids good luck to them being comfortable in the back seat!
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
comfort in comfort it is having the rough road package suspension... which deals fantastically with the rough roads we have in india.... and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical experts, give the best seating position for a human
i purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.
i'm 6'6" so finding a comfortable midsize car can be a challenge.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.

also, interior comfort is top notch---i had heard good things about volvo seats, and a recent 6 hour drive proved to me how comfortable the xc60 seats are.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.

save some $$ and get your own aftermarket nav/dvd systems hope this helps somebody...don't think you can go wrong with this car!

volvo thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
ours had a sticker price of $42,700 and we paid $38,600.
after 1000 miles, gas mileage has been better than advertised.
i am not thrilled with the lack of steering feel, but the vehicle will take fast corners and sticks to the roadexcellently.
i love the power and the feeling is swanky but elegant!
the cup holders are also positioned so that can they interfere with the gearshift.
i cannot wait until it is time to buy a new vehicle which is unfortunate because i heard such great things about volvo's but probably will never buy another one again!
the electronics started acting weird, and there was a mysterious leak in the windshield that i couldn't find, and the dealerships claimed they couldn't find it either, even tho every time it rained i had water dripping down my windshield.
the car has 9 inches of ground clearance that is 3 inches more than mercedes and audi.
the blis package has some issues, it gives you false readings quiet often, that being said it saved me a few times.
i was hesitant to lease a volvo xc60 awd t6 since they are never mentioned in car magazines.
it's almost as if they make them out of plastic.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
i will never buy a volvo again.
i was looking for a reliable awd vehicle because i live where there is a ton of snow and ice, also the closest volvo shop is 4 hours away so i can't exactly pop in if i have an issue.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
great to look at, but not that comfortable on the inside.
customer service was impeccable.
save some $$ and get your own aftermarket nav/dvd systems hope this helps somebody...don't think you can go wrong with this car!
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.

the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
averaging 25 mpg in town and on highway by driving sensibly.
i looked at several luxury crossover vehicles before buying the xc60.
the xc was getting 26 mpg, whick really surprise me.
yeah...i went to a ton of different volvo dealerships for maintenance due to moving around a lot....and i had problems at all of them.
the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
the safety features of the car really impressed me and i really feel safe.
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b
i received a great deal for my trade in.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
i had narrowed it down the honda/acura and the subarus due to their great active safety features, but sprung for the volvo since it's safer and just nicer in a lot of ways.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
took it for service repetedly.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
i need a bigger garage for it!
when you see a volvo on the road (especially the new ones) you can tell it's a volvo because of the sleek styling of it.i think that volvo does a great job of making their cars head turners.
only problem so far is the center channel speaker in the dash (only in multimedia pkg) rattles a bit at certain volumes/frequencies, but the dealership said they'd see if they can pad it some when i get time to drive over there.
also, there are many little features that make you happy about this car, such as the interior lighting while driving and a lot more.
after the first oil change it seemed to stop burning oil, a good thing.
when i look at buying a car i look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all i look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion.
affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
comfort in comfort it is having the rough road package suspension... which deals fantastically with the rough roads we have in india.... and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical experts, give the best seating position for a human
we rarely average over 23 mpg.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
my car has died on me 3xs in the last few months while in eco mode, and even when i'm not in eco mode, my transmission is sluggish and choppy.
i have a 2014 chevy equinox awd and a 2011 honda crv, the volvo is nicer to drive, but issues, such as volvo states they need to do oil changes, mpg falls short, the blue-tooth/entertainment system is years behind the others.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
couldn't be happier with my purchase.
even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.

i've taken it in to the dealer and they can't find any error messages or issues, and so the problem with my expensive, new lux suv remains.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.
i bought a 3.2 awd new 2 years ago and drove it 26k miles.
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
8 days old today, fast grips like its on rails safe and easy to drive, feels big but its not, our 5 year old daughter loves the car as she can see out the panorama sun roof, auto climate is easy to use, do i have buyers remorse no i would buy again, i tra
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
it handles very precisely, feels rock solid, and i like the ride quality.
although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.
i get 17 miles per gallon.
i wanted an suv as i need to get to work in even the worst weather conditions.
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
besides the design elements that are obvious, its all about the drive.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
volvo has told us due "they" need to put it on the computer to do an oil change, jiffy-lube or firestone, etc should not do it.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
my reasoning is mainly that the rotors are expensive and putting down that much money so often is problematic.
our first and last volvo, worst car we have ever owned we buy a newer used car about every 12 months.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
when i look at buying a car i look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all i look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion.
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
like driving manual transmission in the wrong gear.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
the ride is smooth and fast, and stereo system is crisp.
virtually no road noise!
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
i get 17-18 mpg around town, and 19-20 mpg on the highway however, i do have a heavy foot.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
a very exciting and comfortable car in my sound system is too awesome leather key is just the car is an safety and comfort power and looks are
so the question is would i buy this car if i knew everything i know now?
shift into sport mode and stomp on it and the acceleration is instant.
fuel economy is not a strong suit, but it is well above 22mpg for mine, which is not bad at all for a turbocharged v6 engine.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
-the car failed the wof due to a leak from the power steering, a new steering rack was fitted -a new faulty steering pipe had to be replaced - a fastener was also required the same job we contacted volvo sweden who didn't want to know.
i have had the volvo xc60 for a year now but have to say i am dissapointed in the low mileage, complex radio control and tire problem.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster
the seats are very comfortable and the build is much better than the ford i traded from.
the leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one i looked at had not held up well.
we shall see how warranty/dealer takes care of this and future potential problems in any case i would " steer clear " of this volvo for sure.
overall experience- only one word 'excellent' i just leased a new xc 60 awd with the new drive-e t6 engine with the turbo and supercharger with the 8 speed transmission.
we bought a new xc60 r-design in june of 2014 and have had nothing but problems since...it has been in the shop every 3-4 weeks with problem after problem.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
took it for service repetedly.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
8 days old today, fast grips like its on rails safe and easy to drive, feels big but its not, our 5 year old daughter loves the car as she can see out the panorama sun roof, auto climate is easy to use, do i have buyers remorse no i would buy again, i tra
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
it was only after being pressured by volvocars usa that they took the time to find and repair the problem by far, best vehicle i've owned - beats all other luxury suv/cuvs out there.
at 100mph the xc60 shows off its stability.
looking for a small-mid sized suv after my altima lease, consider and test drove audi q5 and bmw x3--both nice suvs, but don't like the front grill in audi and cheap looking front light on bmw.
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
was deciding between a '10 xc60 and '09 bmw x3-both slightly used and great prices.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.
i was afraid to buy chevy but all five drivers in my family except for my wife like it the best.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
the smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
for the passengers, they may find it a bit rigid off the highway, so if your passenger has influence over the purchase, bring them for the test drive.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
i will never buy a volvo again.
it is solid, comfortable, stylish, safe and fast!
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
got into an accident and totaled the front and rear end of the car, the other passenger and i walked out without a scratch.
the eco sucks.
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
(includes the $1000 owner loyalty discount and the costco discount) with a mixture of highway and city driving we are getting 20 mpg.
after 1500 miles am getting 21.5 to 22.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving.
i had narrowed my search to a acura rdx or the volvo xc60 and found the safety features, the nimble and quick handling, sleek exterior design and the straight-forward, understated but more than adequate interior won out in the volvo.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
there prices range from lower $30,000-well over $90,000 in the u.s., but you can get a year old volvo in the 20's.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b

the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
customer service was impeccable.
interior design is elegant, i got black dash with creme leather, also a contrast color steering wheel which i love, the infotainment system is well designed, no stupid touch screen, and i love buttons, it's just so easy to use!
power is not bad at all with the 3.2l non-turbo engine as it likes to rev, can only imagine the turbo would be much more fun.
the "r series" really makes a difference in handling & performance.
navi system ( does not work efficiently but one must buy this to get backup rear camera) honestly.. buying a garmin convertible works better then the currently installed cumbersome system which requires you use a remote control & is flawed.
not mentioning how much time this takes, last time it took the dealership 5 days to replace them.
most comfortable seats on the road.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
the subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
the electronics started acting weird, and there was a mysterious leak in the windshield that i couldn't find, and the dealerships claimed they couldn't find it either, even tho every time it rained i had water dripping down my windshield.
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
no compensation from volvo for all my time and gas spent going to shop over and over and over.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
a customer service rep emails me regularly, making sure all my questions and issues are handled.
instead i am looking into lemon laws for my state.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
the acceleration is excellent with the t6.
there prices range from lower $30,000-well over $90,000 in the u.s., but you can get a year old volvo in the 20's.
while all nice vehicles, i felt the volvo had the best balance of performance, utility, and price.
awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
ride quality is very nice, better than the bmw.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
no compensation from volvo for all my time and gas spent going to shop over and over and over.
fuel economy is not a strong suit, but it is well above 22mpg for mine, which is not bad at all for a turbocharged v6 engine.
within 2 months, i've had significant repairs that should not happen for my vehicle.1.both front axles were replaced.

the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
and weird styling.
whereas the lexus was dowdy and boring, the volvo is crisp and entertaining.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
wow..... look elsewhere or do your research after a week of driving the xc60, i noticed a problem with the transmission, a hesitation when accelerating from a complete stop/speeding up to pass etc.
and 5/60 maintenance on everything but the tires!
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.

after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
the blis package has some issues, it gives you false readings quiet often, that being said it saved me a few times.

most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
i own a volvo xc60 r-design which is a crossover and it feels like i\u2019m driving a sports car like the lexus is or bmw 3 series.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).

getting ~20 mpg with mix of driving (first 500 miles).
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
bought this to replace my pilot, with the intent to get much better gas mileage and better features.
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
if, like me, you are smitten by volvo's beautiful r-designs, make sure you spend time in those "special r-design sport seats" to make sure you can get comfortable.

styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
our t5 is the perfect combination of what i want in a family vehicle: outstanding fuel economy for this size/weight of a vehicle, perfectly comfortable for long road trips, great power when you need it.
lots of reviewers praise the comfort; it has been more comfortable than toyota highlander, but not by much.

lexus should buy one of these and just sit in it for a while.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
the car is a very rough ride, so if you have back issues i would look at something else.
the car handles great and we feel very safe inside it.
xenon lights and decent gas mileage.
we shall see how warranty/dealer takes care of this and future potential problems in any case i would " steer clear " of this volvo for sure.

"simply google volvo oil consumption", then you begin to learn...
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
a couple of annoying things about it are the slow acceleration and some comfort issues.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
i get 17 miles per gallon.
purchased my 2015.5 volvo xc60 in december 2015 as a dealer demonstrator with low miles and volvo certified.

i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
volvo thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
my reasoning is mainly that the rotors are expensive and putting down that much money so often is problematic.

all my friends leased mercedes ml350s for their wives and some complained about the car driving like a jeep cherokee with a better interior (i guess it goes back to daimler owning chrysler).
also, interior comfort is top notch---i had heard good things about volvo seats, and a recent 6 hour drive proved to me how comfortable the xc60 seats are.

our first and last volvo, worst car we have ever owned we buy a newer used car about every 12 months.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
the only plus to the bmw was that i could add a third row of seating.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
all their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of volvo called the r-design.
look and style the looks of xc60 is absolutely the best, stylish and good looking when you compare it to the competition...
this review was for the xc90 t6 this is my second volvo and i traded in my volvo s60 to buy the xc60.
the bad about both the bmw and the audi was the price tag and what you get for that tag.
second write up after nearly two years and 20,000 plus miles.
safety is unequaled.
the workmanship, build quality and thoughtfulness of design shows here.
the xc60 is far more quiet, smooth and powerful.
i asked myself several times why i have to pay additional 3-4 thousand more just for the r logo and cosmetics features and i got an answer- completely different handling (suspension and steering)and you can not compare it, even my wife notice that immedi
after doing some research...
dealer had us test the city safety before we left the lot.
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.

the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
but i can't swing how expensive her repairs have been, regardless of how safe she is and how well she drives in the snow.
navi system ( does not work efficiently but one must buy this to get backup rear camera) honestly.. buying a garmin convertible works better then the currently installed cumbersome system which requires you use a remote control & is flawed.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
and 5/60 maintenance on everything but the tires!
beware of the oil consumption issue.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
just me but i want it to get at least 350000 miles on it.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
i have free oil change every 10k miles but i will get it done every 5k miles.
our sticker starts with a t6 awd, then adds the climate pkg, convenience pkg, sport seats, proximity pkg, 20" titania wheels, metal flip-down cargo cage, harmon kardon sound & piano black inlays, totaling over $50k.

the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.

the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
this review was for the xc90 t6 this is my second volvo and i traded in my volvo s60 to buy the xc60.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
very comfortable ride, but sometimes the engine gets fussy.
if, like me, you are smitten by volvo's beautiful r-designs, make sure you spend time in those "special r-design sport seats" to make sure you can get comfortable.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
lol no trouble car went right through and i was only one to make it to work period.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
for a medium sized suv i find the trunk space to be adequate (much better than the audi q5).
love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
my next purchase will likely be another volvo.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
after a year, i had had it and asked how much they would give me for the car to end this, carmax gave me more.
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b
this car really kicks and has smooth power throughout all stages of driving (highway, local, cruising, etc.).
the acceleration is good, the stereo is wonderful and has lots of ways to adjust it.
its safety features were top of the line.
the awd worked beautifully in the snow.
turning safety features on and off is simple, there are dedicated buttons, and the adjustments and customizing for those features is made using the screen when you're not driving.
i've owned my volvo for a year and am extremely happy with the vehicle having abandoned leasing i had done for many years and retiring, i decided to buy.
the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
you can pull out the key and leave the car running inadvertantly, also you can leave accessories running without knowing it.
besides the design elements that are obvious, its all about the drive.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.
good ground clearance better by 3" over my acura mdx and much better handling and tighter feel on the road.
8 days old today, fast grips like its on rails safe and easy to drive, feels big but its not, our 5 year old daughter loves the car as she can see out the panorama sun roof, auto climate is easy to use, do i have buyers remorse no i would buy again, i tra

i have had the volvo xc60 for a year now but have to say i am dissapointed in the low mileage, complex radio control and tire problem.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
we rarely average over 23 mpg.
(includes the $1000 owner loyalty discount and the costco discount) with a mixture of highway and city driving we are getting 20 mpg.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
we have found the volvo dealer no better than the local chevy dealer, we make appointments and they lose them or tell us when we bring it in its first come first serve.
it is way too easy to get up and moving above the speed limit i had a great experience purchasing it from sandberg volvo, after my local dealer wouldn't match the usaa price, and sandberg gave me an interest rate 1/2 of usaa's.
interestingly, you'll find the subaru scores higher on active braking because it triggers auto braking earlier and stops you completely when approaching a car at 25mph.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
infinti.was good but way too small and was not aging well after less than a year.
if, like me, you are smitten by volvo's beautiful r-designs, make sure you spend time in those "special r-design sport seats" to make sure you can get comfortable.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
the gas mileage needs improving with some help burning (factory design) regular fuel.
it is buttery smooth, has no real turbo lag.much better power delivery than a similar hp infiniti engine, with a lot less vibration and noise.
i have also driven non-r-design versions and they are also quite good and much cheaper.
this is my 4th volvo and i have always enjoyed their style and solid feel.
within 2 months, i've had significant repairs that should not happen for my vehicle.1.both front axles were replaced.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
this car is a great value and has all the extra safety features i wanted in the car at a much lower price then bmw and audi.
their software showed no diagnostics so they insisted the camera was working properly.
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
the engine is super smooth, it is quieter inside and smoother riding (even with r design) than previous infiniti and bmw vehicles we've had.
drove 200 miles on 2 lane roads the last couple of days and did lots of passing.
i'd recommend this suv to anyone looking for a nice vehicle (family or not).
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
the xc60 is one of the safest vehicles in the world and now even more so with state of art technology and aggressive accident avoidance via performance characteristics.
the service staff is very professional and always helpful.
with 2,000 miles i give the volvo xc60 an a-.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?

i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
ii never regret to buy this car.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
dealer had us test the city safety before we left the lot.

that notification is on a timer per certain amount of miles driven.
beware of the oil consumption issue.
averaging 25 mpg in town and on highway by driving sensibly.
also, interior comfort is top notch---i had heard good things about volvo seats, and a recent 6 hour drive proved to me how comfortable the xc60 seats are.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
not just the looks but the price tag was made them both weep.
i need power and it needs to look good as well.
i did rent an awd while in canada for a week, and found that model to be faster and sportier.
i bought a new 2010 volvo xc60 and was looking forward to many years with this car.
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.
i bought a 2016 xc60 t5 premier in flamenco red with the soft beige leather interior.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
the smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
my husband is a pretty big guy (6'4" and about 240) and he is extremely comfortable.
although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
for a company that's known for its superb seat comfort, that is a big disappointment.
much better value for the money than the x3 and wanted the extra room of the xc60 compared to the q5.
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
plus better equipped and 5 yr free maintance, so went for volvo.
a very exciting and comfortable car in my sound system is too awesome leather key is just the car is an safety and comfort power and looks are
i went with the t6 for the extra handling and body design.
the issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
so if you are a fan of back pain, and you have money to waste, and you have all the time in the world this car is the perfect car for you!

the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
i was looking to replace my third saab, i test drove all the cars in xc 60's class, the lexus, the audi, the benz, the beamer, i even contemplated the 3.2 litre xc 60, but then i drove the 3.0 litre t6.....woah!
i have also driven non-r-design versions and they are also quite good and much cheaper.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
a couple of annoying things about it are the slow acceleration and some comfort issues.
i love running errands and taking long drives because it great on gas mileage and it is so nice to look at both inside and outside.

awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
the local volvo dealer had to contact other dealers on how to check the oil level from the info system.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.

the subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
look and style the looks of xc60 is absolutely the best, stylish and good looking when you compare it to the competition...
but thus far the xc60 t5 has been just terrific to drive, extremely responsive, fuel economy as advertised and the turbo makes it quite the pocket rocket.
the price was considerably lower than comparable vehicles.
the inside front tires are not wearing well--so with only 27,000 miles i'll have to replace the tires.

even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.
and while it\u2019s not a sports car, the xc60 is also fun and comfortable on twisty back roads.
i would buy this 2015.5 again and again.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?

i opted for the platinum/blis/heated seats etc.
but i can't swing how expensive her repairs have been, regardless of how safe she is and how well she drives in the snow.
after complaining to volvo, they offered to look at it.. after about $1500 in repairs, noting offering to change my oil trap (which i told them was already repaired and paid for), they said they did some necessary computer adjustments, and i must also pur
save some $$ and get your own aftermarket nav/dvd systems hope this helps somebody...don't think you can go wrong with this car!
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
i had replace them because they warped, it made the steering wheel shake violently when i went 45 mph or faster.
2.a month later, determined that my windshield adhesive deteriorated causing a leak.
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
we shall see how warranty/dealer takes care of this and future potential problems in any case i would " steer clear " of this volvo for sure.
i've owned my volvo for a year and am extremely happy with the vehicle having abandoned leasing i had done for many years and retiring, i decided to buy.
purchased my 2015.5 volvo xc60 in december 2015 as a dealer demonstrator with low miles and volvo certified.
r-design is a blast.
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.

only problem so far is the center channel speaker in the dash (only in multimedia pkg) rattles a bit at certain volumes/frequencies, but the dealership said they'd see if they can pad it some when i get time to drive over there.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
nav system was a little annoying at first, but now i'm used to it and it works great.
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.
electronics, etc.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
the blind spot warning system works well.
beware of epa estimates, they are a crock.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.

purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
saw a video where they race in it and in woodland setting, lol.
comfortable, classy, fuel-efficient, satisfying to drive, and, as long as it\u2019s reliable, i\u2019m looking forward to my three daughters using up whatever\u2019s left of it when i\u2019m done.
i think next time i would rather buy a v6 subaru outback!

after 1000 miles, gas mileage has been better than advertised.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
took it for service repetedly.
but the volvo handles so well in much greater comfort (is this a function of age?), and elegance and relative silence that i cannot imagine a better bargain.
the seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
just got xc60 r-design in passion red, and did a test drive to compare r and "normal".
i was a bit worried about the poor reviews of the digital interface, but i find it easy to use, except the nav system is not as easy to use as garmin.
the interior looks great in two-tone leather, ergonomics are fine, and at the present it is rated the most reliable of the european brands.
very comfortable seats front and back.
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
safety features are outstanding, but after driving car for 2 months, each day is as frustrating as the last in how poorly designed the interior is.

the honda and acura use "radar" too, and are very nice for the price.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
r series interior is on par with q5 and nicer than all the others.
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
i have a 2014 chevy equinox awd and a 2011 honda crv, the volvo is nicer to drive, but issues, such as volvo states they need to do oil changes, mpg falls short, the blue-tooth/entertainment system is years behind the others.
the transmitter in the hatch was loose from the factory.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
the xc60 is great on the highway: smooth, fast enough, quiet, stable, and big enough to inspire confidence.
i am only 5'4" and am incredibly uncomfortable when i sit in the backseat with my son, to the point where you have to sit sideways because your legs have practically no room.
i was apprehensive going from an awd platform to the fwd.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.
the engine is super smooth, it is quieter inside and smoother riding (even with r design) than previous infiniti and bmw vehicles we've had.
the interior is nice, our only complaint is the \u201cstorage area\u201d under the radio, you can\u2019t really put anything in it or it falls out when you turn.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.

the volvo xc60 is a great vehicle for anyone wanting to purchase in the "realm" of the luxury market.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
fuel economy is not a strong suit, but it is well above 22mpg for mine, which is not bad at all for a turbocharged v6 engine.
i own a volvo xc60 r-design which is a crossover and it feels like i\u2019m driving a sports car like the lexus is or bmw 3 series.
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.
very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.
the rear cargo area is spacious enough to accommodate my road bike or mountain bike, foregoing noisy, wind resisting sport racks.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
the blind spot warning system works well.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
best looking of the bunch.
it was so bad that the dealership said that finding where it was coming from behind the dashboard could cause even worse rattles putting it back together.
well no issues at all here with my xc-60 awd volvo majic blue 5 cyl gas.
it is way too easy to get up and moving above the speed limit i had a great experience purchasing it from sandberg volvo, after my local dealer wouldn't match the usaa price, and sandberg gave me an interest rate 1/2 of usaa's.

the s60 and xc60 share many components, especially the interior, and i thought i would get about the the same comfort and fun to drive in a more versatile vehicle.
the seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
it was only after being pressured by volvocars usa that they took the time to find and repair the problem by far, best vehicle i've owned - beats all other luxury suv/cuvs out there.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster

bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
volvo thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
took it for service repetedly.
no hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
we bought a new xc60 r-design in june of 2014 and have had nothing but problems since...it has been in the shop every 3-4 weeks with problem after problem.

getting ~20 mpg with mix of driving (first 500 miles).
it was only after being pressured by volvocars usa that they took the time to find and repair the problem by far, best vehicle i've owned - beats all other luxury suv/cuvs out there.
when i look at buying a car i look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all i look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion.
pkgs. and all of the added safety features are amazing.
i asked myself several times why i have to pay additional 3-4 thousand more just for the r logo and cosmetics features and i got an answer- completely different handling (suspension and steering)and you can not compare it, even my wife notice that immedi

shift into sport mode and stomp on it and the acceleration is instant.
a customer service rep emails me regularly, making sure all my questions and issues are handled.
i've owned my volvo for a year and am extremely happy with the vehicle having abandoned leasing i had done for many years and retiring, i decided to buy.
with the t6 and awd it can be a blast.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.
anyway, i will never buy another volvo.
after a few years, noticed that i needed to add a quart of oil between 5000 mile oil changes.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
every knob, every stalk, every bin just falls perfectly into your hand.
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
i do not recommend this car, unless you have a lot of spare time and money to waste.
after the first oil change it seemed to stop burning oil, a good thing.
we love the design and the build quality but this car has been a lemon.
lexus should buy one of these and just sit in it for a while.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
the workmanship, build quality and thoughtfulness of design shows here.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
on our honda crv and chevy equinox we always meet or exceed the epa estimated mpg, so i don\u2019t think it our driving habits.
i like this cars parking sensors, they've saved me countless times.
affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
the inside is nice, but i have had many small electrical problems.
i was looking for a reliable awd vehicle because i live where there is a ton of snow and ice, also the closest volvo shop is 4 hours away so i can't exactly pop in if i have an issue.
gas mileage is sub-par, but uses regular gas, so it's a wash.
the only thing i really will miss is homelink and possibly the fog lamps.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
i would suggest that u drive several models to find the right engine, awd v. fwd etc before choosing.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
it is also built a bit stronger, and seats you wonderfully.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
when i got to the car dealer, they made a different gimmick and i end up paying a high price, even beyond what i intended to.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.

constantly trying to rip me off, charge me for unnecessary things...they even went as far as telling me that i needed a new timing belt....when the car has a timing chain.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
interior design is elegant, i got black dash with creme leather, also a contrast color steering wheel which i love, the infotainment system is well designed, no stupid touch screen, and i love buttons, it's just so easy to use!
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
at 55k miles, i paid for a new wheel hub ($650), at 60k miles, a rear stab link broke off ($450), then the doozie-at 65k miles the rear differential and active on demand coupler went bad (over $6500) !
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.

in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
it is also the most comfortable volvo that i have ever driven.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
the car does drive nice and has good performance, by far its best point.
i got the base model with premium pkg and multimedia pkg.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
i bought mine 300+ miles away and got an extraordinary deal on exactly the car i wanted.

nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
really like the improvements to the navi system and update blis package with cross traffic alert.
well no issues at all here with my xc-60 awd volvo majic blue 5 cyl gas.
the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.
i'm getting 21.5 mpg with all local driving and winter idling which was the most my v6 mustang could make with mixed highway/city.

the seats aren't noticeably different from other cars until you get up after a long drive and realize how much better you feel than if you were sitting in a normal car that long.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
besides the obvious reputation for safety, volvos have continued to improve their reliability, looks, and amenities over the years.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.

power is not bad at all with the 3.2l non-turbo engine as it likes to rev, can only imagine the turbo would be much more fun.
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.
after 3 days of driving our new xc60; the power steering went out.
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
we love the design and the build quality but this car has been a lemon.
the s60 and xc60 share many components, especially the interior, and i thought i would get about the the same comfort and fun to drive in a more versatile vehicle.

the leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one i looked at had not held up well.
it is way too easy to get up and moving above the speed limit i had a great experience purchasing it from sandberg volvo, after my local dealer wouldn't match the usaa price, and sandberg gave me an interest rate 1/2 of usaa's.
my gas mileage has been phenomenal using the eco feature and it has the same getup and go as a acura integra i once owned.
this is a great car for the driver who wants to feel the road, have less body roll and tighter steering.
if gas gets low car comes up with like 10 of the close gas stations in relation to my car, nice.
this model has been recalled 2 times since our purchase.
much better value for the money than the x3 and wanted the extra room of the xc60 compared to the q5.
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.
looking for a small-mid sized suv after my altima lease, consider and test drove audi q5 and bmw x3--both nice suvs, but don't like the front grill in audi and cheap looking front light on bmw.

i've owned my volvo for a year and am extremely happy with the vehicle having abandoned leasing i had done for many years and retiring, i decided to buy.
i feel this is a huge design flaw on volvo's part!
i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.
quality volvo, nice interior totaly different that other cars and i like it.
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
i have traditionally kept my vehicles and maintained them for years after purchase.

although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.

i was a bit worried about the poor reviews of the digital interface, but i find it easy to use, except the nav system is not as easy to use as garmin.

it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
after 1500 miles, i have been very happy.
it was fine while under warranty for 4 years/ 50, 000.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.

my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
it handles very well, has better than average acceleration, stops well, steers well, etc.
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.

interior design is elegant, i got black dash with creme leather, also a contrast color steering wheel which i love, the infotainment system is well designed, no stupid touch screen, and i love buttons, it's just so easy to use!

i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
i get about 28 mpg on the highway using regular gas.
i'm getting 21.5 mpg with all local driving and winter idling which was the most my v6 mustang could make with mixed highway/city.
i need power and it needs to look good as well.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
i would encourage anyone in the market for a car to take a look at the volvo.
i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
i bought the 2015 volvo xc60 as a demo with low miles about six weeks ago and i really like it.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.
it took the dealership over 1 week to fix the problem and get the part.
only problem so far is the center channel speaker in the dash (only in multimedia pkg) rattles a bit at certain volumes/frequencies, but the dealership said they'd see if they can pad it some when i get time to drive over there.
i have free oil change every 10k miles but i will get it done every 5k miles.

anyway, i will never buy another volvo.
fact is, i really liked the seats in the car and driving it was fun, except when it broke!
awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
wanted a boron steel cocoon for the wife, excellent safety rating.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
i bought a 3.2 awd new 2 years ago and drove it 26k miles.

i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
then i started noticing the efficiency/eco mode was acting sluggish.
all their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of volvo called the r-design.
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
my sister has an 2013 outback and that cars awd system is a lot better than the volvo's, hands down.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
the seats are great once you get them right.
look and style the looks of xc60 is absolutely the best, stylish and good looking when you compare it to the competition...
the batteries kept dying, i had to get three new batteries in three years, two in an 8 month period.
the bad about both the bmw and the audi was the price tag and what you get for that tag.
car is very comfortable.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
also, there are many little features that make you happy about this car, such as the interior lighting while driving and a lot more.
on our honda crv and chevy equinox we always meet or exceed the epa estimated mpg, so i don\u2019t think it our driving habits.
the gas mileage needs improving with some help burning (factory design) regular fuel.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.

it was so safe, great ride...kinda heavy like a truck, but i didn't mind.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
the issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
i think next time i would rather buy a v6 subaru outback!
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
looking for a small-mid sized suv after my altima lease, consider and test drove audi q5 and bmw x3--both nice suvs, but don't like the front grill in audi and cheap looking front light on bmw.
if, like me, you are smitten by volvo's beautiful r-designs, make sure you spend time in those "special r-design sport seats" to make sure you can get comfortable.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
customer service was impeccable.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
the turbos are water-cooled and are just for the lower rpm, not like the high pressure turbos in audi and vw that make the engine last less than 50k miles and no need to oil cool them by idling the car for 60 seconds before turning it off.
yeah...i went to a ton of different volvo dealerships for maintenance due to moving around a lot....and i had problems at all of them.
comfort in comfort it is having the rough road package suspension... which deals fantastically with the rough roads we have in india.... and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical experts, give the best seating position for a human

it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
but the volvo handles so well in much greater comfort (is this a function of age?), and elegance and relative silence that i cannot imagine a better bargain.

there is no reason to spend extra for the turbo unless the "rush" is important.

extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
i cannot wait until it is time to buy a new vehicle which is unfortunate because i heard such great things about volvo's but probably will never buy another one again!
it is a comfortable, lovely ride.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
it's tight and very comfortable.
i keep my vehicles for a long time and put lots of miles on them; 296,000 and 263,000 on previous vehicles (acura and nissan respectively) and hope to enjoy the same longevity with my volvo.
that's fine if you want to make a u-turn in tight space but it actually takes care not to over-steer when parking.
volvo has told us due "they" need to put it on the computer to do an oil change, jiffy-lube or firestone, etc should not do it.
we shall see how warranty/dealer takes care of this and future potential problems in any case i would " steer clear " of this volvo for sure.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
if you are a bass person....the bass is very very good.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
pickup mileage 12-13 km/l in city and 13-14km/l on highway (d4 summum) best feature - seats, leather,design,comfort, city safety (automatic braking), sips(side impact protection system),whips(whiplash protection system), dual zone ac with dual pollen filt
i feel this is a huge design flaw on volvo's part!
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
performance with the 3.2 engine is good.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
the gas mileage needs improving with some help burning (factory design) regular fuel.
i was apprehensive going from an awd platform to the fwd.
not only are volvos safe, but there also comfortable, stylish/perform well, dependable, and affordable.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
upgraded my car to polestar rating (software upgrade) my car came with sirius satellite and currently get 20.8mpg with plus (89) gasoline with ethanol can get up to 23 mpg if i use strictly (non ethanol gas and clamp down on my lead foot!)
the interior defines simple elegance.
another thing that made me think that the car was programmed to break after the warranty was over was that every time the "regular maintenance" notification showed up, i noticed that if i didn't take it into the dealership fast enough, things would myster
our t5 is the perfect combination of what i want in a family vehicle: outstanding fuel economy for this size/weight of a vehicle, perfectly comfortable for long road trips, great power when you need it.
awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
safety features are outstanding, but after driving car for 2 months, each day is as frustrating as the last in how poorly designed the interior is.
i peeked in when the volvo dealer was doing oil and man was spraying the unused oil funnel with some kind of clear looking stuff.
lexus.-comfortable but boring.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
either volvo over estimated mpg or who knows.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
it still averages about 27 on the highway and less in town, maybe a 24 mpg average, less than we expected.
and weird styling.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
gas mileage has not increased.
ours has everything except blind spot warning.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
and the gas milage is terrible.
it was only after being pressured by volvocars usa that they took the time to find and repair the problem by far, best vehicle i've owned - beats all other luxury suv/cuvs out there.
safety and each and every thing it is a luxurious sporty car.
the volvo destroyed both in the safety department.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
not suv like at all, as it has a nice suspension and very confident handling.
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
the rdx had a dull feel to it compared to the energy and zip of the xc60 and the rear-end design of the rdx fell short.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.

the xc60 was a great compromise for value and features including, of course, safety for my new family.
the service staff is very professional and always helpful.
while all nice vehicles, i felt the volvo had the best balance of performance, utility, and price.
it still averages about 27 on the highway and less in town, maybe a 24 mpg average, less than we expected.
"simply google volvo oil consumption", then you begin to learn...
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
i think that's a bit much for a volvo with what many consider low mileage.
i was looking to replace my third saab, i test drove all the cars in xc 60's class, the lexus, the audi, the benz, the beamer, i even contemplated the 3.2 litre xc 60, but then i drove the 3.0 litre t6.....woah!
the power steering reservoir/lines were replaced after steering effort was erratic.
i owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
the xc60 is far more quiet, smooth and powerful.
at 100mph the xc60 shows off its stability.
this car is a great value and has all the extra safety features i wanted in the car at a much lower price then bmw and audi.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
a fuse was recalled related to the function and i had it replaced, but there's been no improvement.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
i have a 2000 s80 with 250,000 miles and it's still running strong.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
after complaining to volvo, they offered to look at it.. after about $1500 in repairs, noting offering to change my oil trap (which i told them was already repaired and paid for), they said they did some necessary computer adjustments, and i must also pur
10,000 miles later i discover prominate wear issues.
it is way too easy to get up and moving above the speed limit i had a great experience purchasing it from sandberg volvo, after my local dealer wouldn't match the usaa price, and sandberg gave me an interest rate 1/2 of usaa's.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
i felt that the xc60 was everything i was looking for and more.
comfortable- volvo also cares about how comfortable its passengers are.
our t5 is the perfect combination of what i want in a family vehicle: outstanding fuel economy for this size/weight of a vehicle, perfectly comfortable for long road trips, great power when you need it.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
in order to reach something easily (while driving), it has to be in one of the two cup holders.
the honda and acura use "radar" too, and are very nice for the price.
acceleration and handling are great for a crossover, and the car feels so solid and secure when driving.
customer service was impeccable.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
comfort in comfort it is having the rough road package suspension... which deals fantastically with the rough roads we have in india.... and not to forget the seats designed with the help of the medical experts, give the best seating position for a human
the issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
you can pull out the key and leave the car running inadvertantly, also you can leave accessories running without knowing it.
i get about 28 mpg on the highway using regular gas.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
got into an accident and totaled the front and rear end of the car, the other passenger and i walked out without a scratch.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
xc60 definitely is the best looking of all three.
volvo cares deeply about the safety of their buyers and unlike other car brands that put luxury first or convenience they put safety first.
the service staff is very professional and always helpful.
i've owned my volvo for a year and am extremely happy with the vehicle having abandoned leasing i had done for many years and retiring, i decided to buy.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
it is buttery smooth, has no real turbo lag.much better power delivery than a similar hp infiniti engine, with a lot less vibration and noise.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
it was fine while under warranty for 4 years/ 50, 000.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
on our honda crv and chevy equinox we always meet or exceed the epa estimated mpg, so i don\u2019t think it our driving habits.
when i look at buying a car i look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all i look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion.
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
the xc60 was by far the most comfortable vehicle i have ever owned.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
ii never regret to buy this car.
all their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of volvo called the r-design.
i have a 2014 chevy equinox awd and a 2011 honda crv, the volvo is nicer to drive, but issues, such as volvo states they need to do oil changes, mpg falls short, the blue-tooth/entertainment system is years behind the others.
one mechanic said it's a 5000lb car you have to gun it (!!).
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
there is no timing belt.
after 3 trips to the dealer when they insisted the rh blis was working properly, i complained to volvocars usa in nj.
after 1500 miles am getting 21.5 to 22.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving.
the xc was getting 26 mpg, whick really surprise me.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
had to stay and worked day shift eve shift and mid shift, well that paid for my tires lol.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
(includes the $1000 owner loyalty discount and the costco discount) with a mixture of highway and city driving we are getting 20 mpg.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
its awd system is not the best, with its 60(front)/40(back) split.
this car is luxurious, beautiful leather seats, best in class, feels solid, tight drive, just stellar car to move your caboose!
i listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
i would suggest that u drive several models to find the right engine, awd v. fwd etc before choosing.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
i asked myself several times why i have to pay additional 3-4 thousand more just for the r logo and cosmetics features and i got an answer- completely different handling (suspension and steering)and you can not compare it, even my wife notice that immedi
so the question is would i buy this car if i knew everything i know now?
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
the interior is nice, our only complaint is the \u201cstorage area\u201d under the radio, you can\u2019t really put anything in it or it falls out when you turn.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
volvo cares deeply about the safety of their buyers and unlike other car brands that put luxury first or convenience they put safety first.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
after complaining to volvo, they offered to look at it.. after about $1500 in repairs, noting offering to change my oil trap (which i told them was already repaired and paid for), they said they did some necessary computer adjustments, and i must also pur
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
volvo has been in india for quite a while now and it seems it wants some serious i was always fond of the luxury interiors soothe my but since my budget was under 70 i decided to wait for a while until last year december to place my hands on volvo the suv
first of all, don't be afraid to internet shop outside of your geographic area.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.

Car owners experiences
all their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of volvo called the r-design.
the interior looks great in two-tone leather, ergonomics are fine, and at the present it is rated the most reliable of the european brands.
really like the improvements to the navi system and update blis package with cross traffic alert.
both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
the 20" wheels are a surprise in handling and comfort.
after years of sport sedan driving we wanted more space for things and a higher driving position for traffic.
the acceleration is good, the stereo is wonderful and has lots of ways to adjust it.
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.

although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.
the bluetooth and technology interface works perfectly, and i find the controls to be fairly easy to navigate.
computer has had several glitches generating problem messages regarding functions in the vehicle.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
with the t6 and awd it can be a blast.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
i really miss the large digital speed display on my honda, because i really need to keep an eye on my speed with this thing!
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.
for years volvo did an ok job in the performance, but in the last decade they have really been improving the performance of their cars.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
acceleration and handling are great for a crossover, and the car feels so solid and secure when driving.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
power is not bad at all with the 3.2l non-turbo engine as it likes to rev, can only imagine the turbo would be much more fun.
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
turning safety features on and off is simple, there are dedicated buttons, and the adjustments and customizing for those features is made using the screen when you're not driving.
whereas the lexus was dowdy and boring, the volvo is crisp and entertaining.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
the seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.
the engine is sweet, and i mean sweet.
its safety features were top of the line.
i owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
i asked myself several times why i have to pay additional 3-4 thousand more just for the r logo and cosmetics features and i got an answer- completely different handling (suspension and steering)and you can not compare it, even my wife notice that immedi

the xc60 is one of the safest vehicles in the world and now even more so with state of art technology and aggressive accident avoidance via performance characteristics.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.

wow, what a change, moving from a honda civic hybrid!
you turn a dial to adjust the temperature, you don't scroll through your touch screen.
this is a great car for the driver who wants to feel the road, have less body roll and tighter steering.
chose the naturally aspirated 6 and there's plenty of power without the turbo (tested both passing uphill on rt. 280 near livingston, nj, those who have driven it can appreciate the statement).
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
i had narrowed it down the honda/acura and the subarus due to their great active safety features, but sprung for the volvo since it's safer and just nicer in a lot of ways.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
r series interior is on par with q5 and nicer than all the others.
your also going to have to be more careful with those 20" rims - and tires will be more expensive.
i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
navi system ( does not work efficiently but one must buy this to get backup rear camera) honestly.. buying a garmin convertible works better then the currently installed cumbersome system which requires you use a remote control & is flawed.

i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.

with this volvo, you'd still hit the car, but at a slow speed.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
power is not bad at all with the 3.2l non-turbo engine as it likes to rev, can only imagine the turbo would be much more fun.
our t5 is the perfect combination of what i want in a family vehicle: outstanding fuel economy for this size/weight of a vehicle, perfectly comfortable for long road trips, great power when you need it.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.

outstanding sound system with the nav package.
the only plus to the bmw was that i could add a third row of seating.

exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
the local volvo dealer had to contact other dealers on how to check the oil level from the info system.
it was so bad that the dealership said that finding where it was coming from behind the dashboard could cause even worse rattles putting it back together.
the smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....

i purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.
our sticker starts with a t6 awd, then adds the climate pkg, convenience pkg, sport seats, proximity pkg, 20" titania wheels, metal flip-down cargo cage, harmon kardon sound & piano black inlays, totaling over $50k.
the pirelli tires are not wearing well.

the inside front tires are not wearing well--so with only 27,000 miles i'll have to replace the tires.
besides the obvious reputation for safety, volvos have continued to improve their reliability, looks, and amenities over the years.

safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.

only problem so far is the center channel speaker in the dash (only in multimedia pkg) rattles a bit at certain volumes/frequencies, but the dealership said they'd see if they can pad it some when i get time to drive over there.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
safety features are outstanding, but after driving car for 2 months, each day is as frustrating as the last in how poorly designed the interior is.
the rear cargo area is spacious enough to accommodate my road bike or mountain bike, foregoing noisy, wind resisting sport racks.

you turn a dial to adjust the temperature, you don't scroll through your touch screen.

i've taken it in to the dealer and they can't find any error messages or issues, and so the problem with my expensive, new lux suv remains.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.

however if you plan on having more kids good luck to them being comfortable in the back seat!

the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.

i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.

i have had the volvo xc60 for a year now but have to say i am dissapointed in the low mileage, complex radio control and tire problem.

the user interface still confuses my wife, it is not very intuitive.
new mexico driver review for volvo volvo has been around for decades and have been setting the safety standard for years.

i had narrowed my search to a acura rdx or the volvo xc60 and found the safety features, the nimble and quick handling, sleek exterior design and the straight-forward, understated but more than adequate interior won out in the volvo.
i was a bit worried about the poor reviews of the digital interface, but i find it easy to use, except the nav system is not as easy to use as garmin.
in order to reach something easily (while driving), it has to be in one of the two cup holders.
also, interior comfort is top notch---i had heard good things about volvo seats, and a recent 6 hour drive proved to me how comfortable the xc60 seats are.
this is, hands down, the most luxurious, comfortable, enjoyable vehicle i've ever owned (prior cars include: 08 bmw x3, 04 acura tl, 99 bmw 3 series sedan).
if you can swing it, i definitely recommend the t6 version with the 300hp, 325 lb torque turbo inline 6 engine.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
the engine is super smooth, it is quieter inside and smoother riding (even with r design) than previous infiniti and bmw vehicles we've had.
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
had to stay and worked day shift eve shift and mid shift, well that paid for my tires lol.
overall experience- only one word 'excellent' i just leased a new xc 60 awd with the new drive-e t6 engine with the turbo and supercharger with the 8 speed transmission.
i did rent an awd while in canada for a week, and found that model to be faster and sportier.
all their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of volvo called the r-design.
the t-5 drive e engine should get 24 in town and about 30 on the highway.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.

its awd system is not the best, with its 60(front)/40(back) split.
the volvo brand has always meant quality and safety.
complaints (minor) are no change holder in center console.
man those are good tires and not real noisy and on a trip they would go around corners fast and great, surprised me.
we shall see how warranty/dealer takes care of this and future potential problems in any case i would " steer clear " of this volvo for sure.

the safety features of the car really impressed me and i really feel safe.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
this car is luxurious, beautiful leather seats, best in class, feels solid, tight drive, just stellar car to move your caboose!
and while it\u2019s not a sports car, the xc60 is also fun and comfortable on twisty back roads.
i really miss the large digital speed display on my honda, because i really need to keep an eye on my speed with this thing!
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
the turbos are water-cooled and are just for the lower rpm, not like the high pressure turbos in audi and vw that make the engine last less than 50k miles and no need to oil cool them by idling the car for 60 seconds before turning it off.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
city safety was tested on my car at the dealer, boy did it work as designed.

i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
having looked at the audi, bmw, and volvo reviews for a fast suv, i tried and then bought a xc60.
there are a few things i would change about the interior design though.
the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.

no hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.

car is great in high speed sweepers-very stable.
interestingly, you'll find the subaru scores higher on active braking because it triggers auto braking earlier and stops you completely when approaching a car at 25mph.

for a company that's known for its superb seat comfort, that is a big disappointment.
computer has had several glitches generating problem messages regarding functions in the vehicle.
feels incredibly solid and handles better than my 3 yr old sports sedan.
i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
i now have about $8,000 worth of things to fix on the damn thing, including the rear differential, and so needless to say i'm looking for a new car.
the gps stinks too.
i bought a 3.2 awd new 2 years ago and drove it 26k miles.
i listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
the acceleration is good, the stereo is wonderful and has lots of ways to adjust it.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
while all nice vehicles, i felt the volvo had the best balance of performance, utility, and price.
i had replace them because they warped, it made the steering wheel shake violently when i went 45 mph or faster.
the manual does not describe how to do it my wife or daughter still can\u2019t check the oil level using the information system.
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.

interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
sport mode is eager and even more so when the dtsc is turned off.
really like the improvements to the navi system and update blis package with cross traffic alert.
navi system ( does not work efficiently but one must buy this to get backup rear camera) honestly.. buying a garmin convertible works better then the currently installed cumbersome system which requires you use a remote control & is flawed.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
i own a volvo xc60 r-design which is a crossover and it feels like i\u2019m driving a sports car like the lexus is or bmw 3 series.
the volvo handles almost as well-the audi was shorter and and lower, a sports car in disguise.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
after years of sport sedan driving we wanted more space for things and a higher driving position for traffic.
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.

volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
upgraded my car to polestar rating (software upgrade) my car came with sirius satellite and currently get 20.8mpg with plus (89) gasoline with ethanol can get up to 23 mpg if i use strictly (non ethanol gas and clamp down on my lead foot!)
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
the blind spot warning system works well.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
looking for a small-mid sized suv after my altima lease, consider and test drove audi q5 and bmw x3--both nice suvs, but don't like the front grill in audi and cheap looking front light on bmw.
the volvo won because it combined good styling(inside and out), good handling for a crossover, great (prob the best in class) safety, a 5 year warranty with free service, and finally, a quality dealership experience that was close by.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
i really miss the large digital speed display on my honda, because i really need to keep an eye on my speed with this thing!
the electronics started acting weird, and there was a mysterious leak in the windshield that i couldn't find, and the dealerships claimed they couldn't find it either, even tho every time it rained i had water dripping down my windshield.
although the price tag is easier to stomach than mercedes, audi, and bmw many of the luxury features you want are delivered, such as plush leather, bluetooth, premium ride.
after complaining to volvo, they offered to look at it.. after about $1500 in repairs, noting offering to change my oil trap (which i told them was already repaired and paid for), they said they did some necessary computer adjustments, and i must also pur
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.

i wanted an suv as i need to get to work in even the worst weather conditions.
the electronics started acting weird, and there was a mysterious leak in the windshield that i couldn't find, and the dealerships claimed they couldn't find it either, even tho every time it rained i had water dripping down my windshield.
i went with the t6 for the extra handling and body design.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
i like it a lot and awd works fantastic and if want i can shift down with the shuttle shift and put in like second gear for bad areas of snow in my 200 plus yard driveway that's in woods and goes down hill over stream and back up hill it did fantastic wit
also, i chose the base engine and it is more than adequate and zippy.
even in regular mode i've been impressed with the transmission.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
interestingly, you'll find the subaru scores higher on active braking because it triggers auto braking earlier and stops you completely when approaching a car at 25mph.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
the turbos are water-cooled and are just for the lower rpm, not like the high pressure turbos in audi and vw that make the engine last less than 50k miles and no need to oil cool them by idling the car for 60 seconds before turning it off.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
zero turbo lag....max torque is ready and willing anywhere in the rev range.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
their software showed no diagnostics so they insisted the camera was working properly.
for a medium sized suv i find the trunk space to be adequate (much better than the audi q5).
fits the kids comfortably in the back with the integrated booster and serves as an adequate backup family hauler when not using our xc90.
save some $$ and get your own aftermarket nav/dvd systems hope this helps somebody...don't think you can go wrong with this car!
overall experience- only one word 'excellent' i just leased a new xc 60 awd with the new drive-e t6 engine with the turbo and supercharger with the 8 speed transmission.

the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
pkgs. and all of the added safety features are amazing.
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....
i was a bit worried about the poor reviews of the digital interface, but i find it easy to use, except the nav system is not as easy to use as garmin.

volvo just doesn't do sport seats right.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
no hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
interior design is elegant, i got black dash with creme leather, also a contrast color steering wheel which i love, the infotainment system is well designed, no stupid touch screen, and i love buttons, it's just so easy to use!
i would advise anyone looking to buy a new car, closely look at the volvo xc60 after driving many competitors in the smaller-suv "luxury" market, was enticed by xc60s size, styling, warranty and maintenance program.
a very exciting and comfortable car in my sound system is too awesome leather key is just the car is an safety and comfort power and looks are
it is also built a bit stronger, and seats you wonderfully.
that's fine if you want to make a u-turn in tight space but it actually takes care not to over-steer when parking.
their software showed no diagnostics so they insisted the camera was working properly.
dealer had us test the city safety before we left the lot.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
-the car failed the wof due to a leak from the power steering, a new steering rack was fitted -a new faulty steering pipe had to be replaced - a fastener was also required the same job we contacted volvo sweden who didn't want to know.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.

i bought a 2016 xc60 t5 premier in flamenco red with the soft beige leather interior.
i believe i researched, test drove and compared every suv on the market.
the seats aren't noticeably different from other cars until you get up after a long drive and realize how much better you feel than if you were sitting in a normal car that long.
pirelli tires are excellent.
and, aesthetically, the wood on the center console would have been nice.
i asked myself several times why i have to pay additional 3-4 thousand more just for the r logo and cosmetics features and i got an answer- completely different handling (suspension and steering)and you can not compare it, even my wife notice that immedi

got into an accident and totaled the front and rear end of the car, the other passenger and i walked out without a scratch.

the safety features of the car really impressed me and i really feel safe.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.

the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.

i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
electronics, etc.
our sticker starts with a t6 awd, then adds the climate pkg, convenience pkg, sport seats, proximity pkg, 20" titania wheels, metal flip-down cargo cage, harmon kardon sound & piano black inlays, totaling over $50k.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
after getting my next oil change 5000 miles later (happily with no new warnings of low oil level), my mechanic informed me that the car now takes 8 quarts of oil, instead of 7, and the new dipstick won't trigger the computer to state low oil level.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.

a couple of annoying things about it are the slow acceleration and some comfort issues.

dealer says it's the tire tread and is expected.
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
volvo has told us due "they" need to put it on the computer to do an oil change, jiffy-lube or firestone, etc should not do it.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
turning safety features on and off is simple, there are dedicated buttons, and the adjustments and customizing for those features is made using the screen when you're not driving.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
one unexpected finding was the seat comfort.

that's fine if you want to make a u-turn in tight space but it actually takes care not to over-steer when parking.
i have a 'whirling' sound that becomes louder with increased speed.
the only feature i would change is the start-stop system.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
i was impressed with the build quality, its pep on the road, and the new features such as blind spot alerts (blis) and rear view camera for backing up.
the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
nav system was a little annoying at first, but now i'm used to it and it works great.

what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).
i am 6'4", and my leg rests against the sharp edge of the middle console too much.
its awd system is not the best, with its 60(front)/40(back) split.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
the ride is smooth and fast, and stereo system is crisp.

now that volvo is finally starting to get up to date on the electronics for the end user, that makes me like them even more.
this is the first automatic transmission i have owned in years and i am really impressed with the engine/transmission combination.

performance with the 3.2 engine is good.
i was looking for a reliable awd vehicle because i live where there is a ton of snow and ice, also the closest volvo shop is 4 hours away so i can't exactly pop in if i have an issue.
i purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.

finally they said they knew what was wrong and to wait for a software update, that took 6 months.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
the "r series" really makes a difference in handling & performance.
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
the main problem is that it's just a bit too small, miss the pilot's space way more than i thought.

wow..... look elsewhere or do your research after a week of driving the xc60, i noticed a problem with the transmission, a hesitation when accelerating from a complete stop/speeding up to pass etc.

i was a bit worried about the poor reviews of the digital interface, but i find it easy to use, except the nav system is not as easy to use as garmin.
and, aesthetically, the wood on the center console would have been nice.
drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.
the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.

volvo has always been known for its safety standards and it be a surprise to say that you would walk away from a deadly accident without a how safe this car lots of time while reviewing a car people forget about the safety of the car and all they think is
but thus far the xc60 t5 has been just terrific to drive, extremely responsive, fuel economy as advertised and the turbo makes it quite the pocket rocket.
the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
the seats are great once you get them right.
what i lose: comfy seats, acceleration, smaller car handling, adaptive cruise control, blind spot indicators what i gain: keep more of my $$$, on star is way underrated for safety/security, way more cargo/passenger space, american pride, more usb ports, b
note that you do get the occasional false alarm from the forward collision warning system, but i'd rather have one or two false alarms then get in a collision.
fuel economy is not a strong suit, but it is well above 22mpg for mine, which is not bad at all for a turbocharged v6 engine.
now that volvo is finally starting to get up to date on the electronics for the end user, that makes me like them even more.
styling and performance- volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there thor hammer headlights to their distinctive long led taillights.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
the cup holders are also positioned so that can they interfere with the gearshift.
looking for a small-mid sized suv after my altima lease, consider and test drove audi q5 and bmw x3--both nice suvs, but don't like the front grill in audi and cheap looking front light on bmw.
safety- as i said before volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars.
i like it a lot and awd works fantastic and if want i can shift down with the shuttle shift and put in like second gear for bad areas of snow in my 200 plus yard driveway that's in woods and goes down hill over stream and back up hill it did fantastic wit
very smooth and nimble handling with t6 engine.
after 3 months of owning the vehicle the horn stopped working, usb port, side mirrors folding in, garage remote, electrical outlet, and many other small problems.
all my friends leased mercedes ml350s for their wives and some complained about the car driving like a jeep cherokee with a better interior (i guess it goes back to daimler owning chrysler).
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
i listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
the interior is nice, our only complaint is the \u201cstorage area\u201d under the radio, you can\u2019t really put anything in it or it falls out when you turn.
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.
our sticker starts with a t6 awd, then adds the climate pkg, convenience pkg, sport seats, proximity pkg, 20" titania wheels, metal flip-down cargo cage, harmon kardon sound & piano black inlays, totaling over $50k.
i had narrowed my search to a acura rdx or the volvo xc60 and found the safety features, the nimble and quick handling, sleek exterior design and the straight-forward, understated but more than adequate interior won out in the volvo.
brake vacuum pump needs replacing ($700), sunroof leaks during a hard rain ($500), tires cup regardless of brand apparently, leather is wearing worse than my mom's 1989 cadillac, the lift gate pistons needed replacement (caught under warranty), brakes wea
not suv like at all, as it has a nice suspension and very confident handling.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.

wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).

it's almost as if they make them out of plastic.

zero turbo lag....max torque is ready and willing anywhere in the rev range.
i recommend the volvo overseas delivery program because i got a great vehicle, met the people who made it, and got a great vacation to sweden.
hands down this is the best car that i have ever owned.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
they use very nice soft to the touch materials in their cars that its passenger appreciate.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
the though i wish i could have plumped for a platinum or r-design version, my suv, which has climate and tailgate packages, as well as remote start, will do just fine.
no mention of multiple dashboards, no mention of setting mpg vs instant mpg, low pressure tire indicator directions are wrong, no mention of how to collapse the back seat....

rather than her tahoe hybrid.
the past year i have have had to spend over $6000 for repairs - rear differential broke, drive belt, power steering broke, brakes, electrics - it is as if the volvo engineers designed it so that every major system would break as soon as the car was out of
the configurable dash is cool at first, but eventually you find one of three choices you really like and stick with it.
also, interior comfort is top notch---i had heard good things about volvo seats, and a recent 6 hour drive proved to me how comfortable the xc60 seats are.
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
and 5/60 maintenance on everything but the tires!
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
bought bridgestone blizzak tires just for winter and glad.

there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
the only way you can easily get a car seat in the backseat is if you move either the driver seat or the passenger seat forward almost completely.
the manual does not describe how to do it my wife or daughter still can\u2019t check the oil level using the information system.
have the turbo and it is a zippy awesome driving experience.
upgraded my car to polestar rating (software upgrade) my car came with sirius satellite and currently get 20.8mpg with plus (89) gasoline with ethanol can get up to 23 mpg if i use strictly (non ethanol gas and clamp down on my lead foot!)
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
the subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
i'd recommend this suv to anyone looking for a nice vehicle (family or not).
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
the cargo handling is great as we have a dog, and car really achieves both form and safety pretty seamless and gives us the feeling of both comfort and zippy performance on the highway.
only complaint thus far is really dumb key start thingamajig.
