Car owners experiences
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.
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.
my reasoning is mainly that the rotors are expensive and putting down that much money so often is problematic.
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 have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
the leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one i looked at had not held up well.
plus better equipped and 5 yr free maintance, so went for volvo.
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.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
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.
fact is, i really liked the seats in the car and driving it was fun, except when it broke!
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
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.
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).
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
lol no trouble car went right through and i was only one to make it to work period.
sport mode is eager and even more so when the dtsc is turned off.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
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.
within 2 months, i've had significant repairs that should not happen for my vehicle.1.both front axles were replaced.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
the only thing i really will miss is homelink and possibly the fog lamps.
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.
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.
lexus.-comfortable but boring.
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
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
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
zero turbo lag....max torque is ready and willing anywhere in the rev range.
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.
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 thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
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.
beware of epa estimates, they are a crock.

i did rent an awd while in canada for a week, and found that model to be faster and sportier.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
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.
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!
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
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.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
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

ride quality is very nice, better than the bmw.
the blind spot warning system works well.
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.
after the first oil change it seemed to stop burning oil, a good thing.
i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
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.
i drive 160 miles a day, mostly on interstate.
the batteries kept dying, i had to get three new batteries in three years, two in an 8 month period.
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
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.
if you can swing it, i definitely recommend the t6 version with the 300hp, 325 lb torque turbo inline 6 engine.

love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
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.
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.
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 service staff is very professional and always helpful.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
the blind spot warning system works well.
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.
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
so the question is would i buy this car if i knew everything i know now?
car is very comfortable.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
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.
we love the design and the build quality but this car has been a lemon.
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 engine does need oil added between the 10,000 mile interval oil changes.
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 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 owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
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.
its safety features were top of the line.
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.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
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.

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
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
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
this review was for the xc90 t6 this is my second volvo and i traded in my volvo s60 to buy the xc60.
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.

interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
lol no trouble car went right through and i was only one to make it to work period.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.

we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
after 1500 miles, i have been very happy.
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
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
virtually no road noise!
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.
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 received a great deal for my trade in.
you can pull out the key and leave the car running inadvertantly, also you can leave accessories running without knowing it.
r series interior is on par with q5 and nicer than all the others.
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.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
the eco sucks.
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.
look and style the looks of xc60 is absolutely the best, stylish and good looking when you compare it to the competition...
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.
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
not mentioning how much time this takes, last time it took the dealership 5 days to replace them.

i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
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.
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
i purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
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 issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
(includes the $1000 owner loyalty discount and the costco discount) with a mixture of highway and city driving we are getting 20 mpg.
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.
my husband is a pretty big guy (6'4" and about 240) and he is extremely comfortable.
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.

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.
also, there are many little features that make you happy about this car, such as the interior lighting while driving and a lot more.
wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
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.
the car is a very rough ride, so if you have back issues i would look at something else.
besides the obvious reputation for safety, volvos have continued to improve their reliability, looks, and amenities over the years.
no compensation from volvo for all my time and gas spent going to shop over and over and over.
best looking of the bunch.
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).
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.
it is solid, comfortable, stylish, safe and fast!

not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
i was hesitant to lease a volvo xc60 awd t6 since they are never mentioned in car magazines.
ok turn off eco.
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.

awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
the batteries kept dying, i had to get three new batteries in three years, two in an 8 month period.
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.
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.
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.
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!)
most comfortable seats on the road.
couldn't be happier with my purchase.
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.

one mechanic said it's a 5000lb car you have to gun it (!!).
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 blind spot warning system works well.
great to look at, but not that comfortable on the inside.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
10,000 miles later i discover prominate wear issues.
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
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
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 loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
solid, beautiful (r-design a must) and full of amenities.
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
bluetooth is clear as a land line and auto-sync when i get into the car.
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
typically at 4000~5000 after an oil change it needs oil.
the issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
for a company that's known for its superb seat comfort, that is a big disappointment.
i loved my volvo for the first 5k miles.
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.

quiet on highway.

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 have free oil change every 10k miles but i will get it done every 5k miles.
even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.
the inside is nice, but i have had many small electrical problems.

dealer had us test the city safety before we left the lot.
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.
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.
i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
the dealer broke 7 out of the 10 retaining clips "fixing" it.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
anyway, i will never buy another 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
well no issues at all here with my xc-60 awd volvo majic blue 5 cyl gas.
great to look at, but not that comfortable on the inside.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
but now at 73,000 miles i'm beginning to wonder if it's not the beginning of the end.
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.
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 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
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 feel this is a huge design flaw on volvo's part!
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
lexus should buy one of these and just sit in it for a while.
instead i am looking into lemon laws for my state.
i will never buy a volvo again.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
the workmanship, build quality and thoughtfulness of design shows here.
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
drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.

i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.
the bad about both the bmw and the audi was the price tag and what you get for that tag.
i think next time i would rather buy a v6 subaru outback!
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.

i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
the seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.
like driving manual transmission in the wrong gear.
customer service was impeccable.
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
was deciding between a '10 xc60 and '09 bmw x3-both slightly used and great prices.
the volvo xc 60 has the most comfortable seats of any vehicle i've 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.
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.
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 seats are great once you get them right.
purchased my 2015.5 volvo xc60 in december 2015 as a dealer demonstrator with low miles and volvo certified.
my sister has an 2013 outback and that cars awd system is a lot better than the volvo's, hands down.
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.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
i went with the t6 for the extra handling and body design.
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.
the workmanship, build quality and thoughtfulness of design shows here.
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
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
the subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
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 20" wheels are a surprise in handling and comfort.
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 navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
i'd recommend this suv to anyone looking for a nice vehicle (family or not).
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 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 would buy this 2015.5 again and again.
i get 17 miles per gallon.
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.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
the rear cargo area is spacious enough to accommodate my road bike or mountain bike, foregoing noisy, wind resisting sport racks.
then i started noticing the efficiency/eco mode was acting sluggish.
ii never regret to buy this car.
acceleration and handling are great for a crossover, and the car feels so solid and secure when driving.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
i was afraid to buy chevy but all five drivers in my family except for my wife like it the best.
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.
had to stay and worked day shift eve shift and mid shift, well that paid for my tires lol.
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.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
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
xenon lights and decent gas mileage.
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.
it handles very precisely, feels rock solid, and i like the ride quality.
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.
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.
not only are volvos safe, but there also comfortable, stylish/perform well, dependable, and affordable.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
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!)
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.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
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
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
the seats are very comfortable and the build is much better than the ford i traded from.
took it for service repetedly.
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.
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 only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
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.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
i have a 'whirling' sound that becomes louder with increased speed.
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
i do not recommend this car, unless you have a lot of spare time and money to waste.
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.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
i'm 6'6" so finding a comfortable midsize car can be a challenge.
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
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?
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.
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 tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
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
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.
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
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.
my wife wanted the volvo for it's superior safety rating and i liked the looks.
if you are a bass person....the bass is very very good.
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
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!
i need power and it needs to look good as well.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
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.
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 dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
i felt that the xc60 was everything i was looking for and more.
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.
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.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
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 honda and acura use "radar" too, and are very nice for the price.
paid about 47k for the platinum package and in general pretty nice car.
ours had a sticker price of $42,700 and we paid $38,600.
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
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.
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.
while all nice vehicles, i felt the volvo had the best balance of performance, utility, and price.
the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.
and weird styling.
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.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
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.
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
drove 200 miles on 2 lane roads the last couple of days and did lots of passing.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
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.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a

city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
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.
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 electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
besides the design elements that are obvious, its all about the drive.
i think that's a bit much for a volvo with what many consider low mileage.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
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 listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
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.
the acceleration is good, the stereo is wonderful and has lots of ways to adjust it.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
solid, beautiful (r-design a must) and full of amenities.
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.
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 years volvo did an ok job in the performance, but in the last decade they have really been improving the performance of their cars.
in order to reach something easily (while driving), it has to be in one of the two cup holders.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
it still averages about 27 on the highway and less in town, maybe a 24 mpg average, less than we expected.
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.
we love the design and the build quality but this car has been a lemon.
bought this to replace my pilot, with the intent to get much better gas mileage and better features.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
the car does drive nice and has good performance, by far its best point.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a
customer service was impeccable.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
the leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one i looked at had not held up well.
the price was considerably lower than comparable vehicles.
both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
i would encourage anyone in the market for a car to take a look at the volvo.
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.
performance with the 3.2 engine is good.
the cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.

the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
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.
"simply google volvo oil consumption", then you begin to learn...
and 5/60 maintenance on everything but the tires!
our big complaint is gas mileage.
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 bought a new 2010 volvo xc60 and was looking forward to many years with this car.

but did i buy a lemon or just need to work out the kinks.
i was apprehensive going from an awd platform to the fwd.
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).
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.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
volvo just doesn't do sport seats right.
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
less than 1000 miles and black sutt in tail pipes.
also, there are many little features that make you happy about this car, such as the interior lighting while driving and a lot more.

both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
the service staff is very professional and always helpful.
i had replace them because they warped, it made the steering wheel shake violently when i went 45 mph or faster.
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.
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 love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
this is my 4th volvo and i have always enjoyed their style and solid feel.
also the service department at the dealership that i purchased both my volvos from is phenomenal.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
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 subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
i think next time i would rather buy a v6 subaru outback!
a customer service rep emails me regularly, making sure all my questions and issues are handled.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!
the only plus to the bmw was that i could add a third row of seating.
wanted a boron steel cocoon for the wife, excellent safety rating.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
volvo thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.
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.
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.
dealer says it's the tire tread and is expected.
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.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k 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.
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.
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 power for passing and merging.
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.
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
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
this is a great car for the driver who wants to feel the road, have less body roll and tighter steering.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
anyway, i will never buy another volvo.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
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.
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.

now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?
a couple of annoying things about it are the slow acceleration and some comfort issues.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
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.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
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.
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 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.
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.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
the gas mileage needs improving with some help burning (factory design) regular fuel.
after the first oil change it seemed to stop burning oil, a good thing.
comfortable- volvo also cares about how comfortable its passengers are.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
however, when looking at bmw x5, lexus or mercedes the same things can be said.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
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

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

nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
it still averages about 27 on the highway and less in town, maybe a 24 mpg average, less than we expected.
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.
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 smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
and, aesthetically, the wood on the center console would have been nice.
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.
was deciding between a '10 xc60 and '09 bmw x3-both slightly used and great prices.
the honda and acura use "radar" too, and are very nice for the price.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.

great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.

i bought a 2016 xc60 t5 premier in flamenco red with the soft beige leather interior.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
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.
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
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.
volvo thought this would go away after the first oil change, but we had to add oil at the 13,000 mile mark.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
city safety was tested on my car at the dealer, boy did it work as designed.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
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!)
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.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
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.

the xc60 was a great compromise for value and features including, of course, safety for my new family.
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 seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
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.
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
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.

purchased my 2015.5 volvo xc60 in december 2015 as a dealer demonstrator with low miles and volvo certified.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
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 safety features of the car really impressed me and i really feel safe.
i wanted an suv as i need to get to work in even the worst weather conditions.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
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.
the bad about both the bmw and the audi was the price tag and what you get for that tag.
after doing some research...
typically at 4000~5000 after an oil change it needs oil.
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.
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.
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.
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 am not thrilled with the lack of steering feel, but the vehicle will take fast corners and sticks to the roadexcellently.

after a few years, noticed that i needed to add a quart of oil between 5000 mile oil changes.

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.
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 would buy this 2015.5 again and again.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
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.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
xc60 definitely is the best looking of all three.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.

the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
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....

the volvo xc60 is a great vehicle for anyone wanting to purchase in the "realm" of the luxury market.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
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
much better value for the money than the x3 and wanted the extra room of the xc60 compared to the q5.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
shift into sport mode and stomp on it and the acceleration is instant.

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.
love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
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.

every knob, every stalk, every bin just falls perfectly into your hand.

just got xc60 r-design in passion red, and did a test drive to compare r and "normal".
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
the xc60 is far more quiet, smooth and powerful.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
after 1000 miles, gas mileage has been better than advertised.
the blis package has some issues, it gives you false readings quiet often, that being said it saved me a few times.
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.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.
the xc60 was by far the most comfortable vehicle i have ever owned.
the transmitter in the hatch was loose from the factory.
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
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.

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.
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!
after 1500 miles am getting 21.5 to 22.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
saw a video where they race in it and in woodland setting, lol.
even complaints to corporate volvo get nowhere - they just repeat the misinformation the service dept spreads.

we rarely average over 23 mpg.
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
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.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
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 automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
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 automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
it is a comfortable, lovely ride.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
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.
this car really kicks and has smooth power throughout all stages of driving (highway, local, cruising, etc.).
i traded in my infiniti ex35 for this car and i will never look back.

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 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.

drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.
look and style the looks of xc60 is absolutely the best, stylish and good looking when you compare it to the competition...
i looked at several luxury crossover vehicles before buying the xc60.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
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

my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
dealer had us test the city safety before we left the lot.
our first and last volvo, worst car we have ever owned we buy a newer used car about every 12 months.
ours has everything except blind spot warning.
with 2,000 miles i give the volvo xc60 an a-.
took it for service repetedly.
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
the mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.
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
no hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.
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!
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
plus better equipped and 5 yr free maintance, so went for volvo.
affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
the "r series" really makes a difference in handling & performance.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
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.

no never, more than $40k: this is customer service?
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
the inside front tires are not wearing well--so with only 27,000 miles i'll have to replace the tires.
(includes the $1000 owner loyalty discount and the costco discount) with a mixture of highway and city driving we are getting 20 mpg.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
2.a month later, determined that my windshield adhesive deteriorated causing a leak.
i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
i was apprehensive going from an awd platform to the fwd.
the gas mileage needs improving with some help burning (factory design) regular fuel.
we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
it is also the most comfortable volvo that i have ever driven.
the volvo destroyed both in the safety department.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.

the local volvo dealer had to contact other dealers on how to check the oil level from the info system.
i get 17-18 mpg around town, and 19-20 mpg on the highway however, i do have a heavy foot.
very comfortable seats front and back.
with the t6 and awd it can be a blast.
you can pull out the key and leave the car running inadvertantly, also you can leave accessories running without knowing it.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.

i have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
other than oil changes, new wipers and a new battery, it has required no service in the past 5 years.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
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 navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
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.
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.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.

good ground clearance better by 3" over my acura mdx and much better handling and tighter feel on the road.
not suv like at all, as it has a nice suspension and very confident handling.
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.
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.
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.
if gas gets low car comes up with like 10 of the close gas stations in relation to my car, nice.
getting ~20 mpg with mix of driving (first 500 miles).
i love the power and the feeling is swanky but elegant!
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
whereas the lexus was dowdy and boring, the volvo is crisp and entertaining.
awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
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 xc60 is great on the highway: smooth, fast enough, quiet, stable, and big enough to inspire confidence.
i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
we took our xc 70 in for service and while waiting decided to test drive the xc 60...wow what a vehicle!

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.
so in my opinion for the price the equinox or crv are a better buy.
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.
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.
it's almost as if they make them out of plastic.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
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
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
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.
and while it\u2019s not a sports car, the xc60 is also fun and comfortable on twisty back roads.
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
there are a few things i would change about the interior design though.
after 3 days of driving our new xc60; the power steering went out.
the xc was getting 26 mpg, whick really surprise me.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
averaging 25 mpg in town and on highway by driving sensibly.
that notification is on a timer per certain amount of miles driven.
the service staff is very professional and always helpful.
the smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
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
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.
ours had a sticker price of $42,700 and we paid $38,600.
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 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.
beware of the oil consumption issue.
after 1500 miles am getting 21.5 to 22.5 mpg in mixed city/highway driving.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
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 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.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.
i have free oil change every 10k miles but i will get it done every 5k miles.
i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.
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
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 listen to educational and music cd's and only with the volvo could i replay a section i wanted to hear again.
it made no sense, and it never happened until the warranty was over.
i bought mine 300+ miles away and got an extraordinary deal on exactly the car i wanted.
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 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 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
the awd worked beautifully in the snow.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
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

affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
beware of the oil consumption issue.
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 leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
now, the bad: i swear volvo programs/designs these cars to be fantastic until the warranty is over.
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 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.
my s60 fit like a glove and was superbly comfortable.
i have free oil change every 10k miles but i will get it done every 5k miles.
i get about 28 mpg on the highway using regular gas.
a fuse was recalled related to the function and i had it replaced, but there's been no improvement.
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 do not recommend this car, unless you have a lot of spare time and money to waste.
i like this cars parking sensors, they've saved me countless times.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.

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.
save some $$ and get your own aftermarket nav/dvd systems hope this helps somebody...don't think you can go wrong with this car!
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
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.
this review was for the xc90 t6 this is my second volvo and i traded in my volvo s60 to buy the xc60.
love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
just got xc60 r-design in passion red, and did a test drive to compare r and "normal".
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 mileage is better than i expected with the 3.2l engine and the interior is dead quiet on the highway.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
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.
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.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
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.
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!
no compensation from volvo for all my time and gas spent going to shop over and over and over.
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
the loose rattles in the tailgate never were fixed from day one.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
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.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
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.
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.
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 makes a great quality product for a good price.
it was fine while under warranty for 4 years/ 50, 000.
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
safety is unequaled.
and the gas milage is terrible.
what i like best about this car (after all the serious stuff like safety and reliability) is the adaptive cruise control.
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
one unexpected finding was the seat comfort.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
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.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
so the question is would i buy this car if i knew everything i know now?
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
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.
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
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.
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 was hesitant to lease a volvo xc60 awd t6 since they are never mentioned in car magazines.
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 acceleration is good, the stereo is wonderful and has lots of ways to adjust it.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
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
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
gas mileage is sub-par, but uses regular gas, so it's a wash.
-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.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
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.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
it only has 60,000 miles on it and has been lovingly cared for and it has turned into an unreliable lemon!
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.

and weird styling.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
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 need power and it needs to look good as well.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.

not just the looks but the price tag was made them both weep.
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.
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.
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.
getting ~20 mpg with mix of driving (first 500 miles).
have a little over 11k miles now.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
customer service was impeccable.
the rear cargo area is spacious enough to accommodate my road bike or mountain bike, foregoing noisy, wind resisting sport racks.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
besides the obvious reputation for safety, volvos have continued to improve their reliability, looks, and amenities over the years.
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.
my next purchase will likely be another volvo.

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.
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).
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.
affordability- volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced.
dealer has been great.
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.
infinti.was good but way too small and was not aging well after less than a year.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
the subaru uses a camera that can easily be blinded if you are driving into the sun.
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.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
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 opted for the platinum/blis/heated seats etc.
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 issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.

lexus should buy one of these and just sit in it for a while.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
very comfortable ride, but sometimes the engine gets fussy.
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 price was considerably lower than comparable vehicles.
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.
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.
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
volvo makes a great quality product for a good price.

safety and each and every thing it is a luxurious sporty car.
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.
my reasoning is mainly that the rotors are expensive and putting down that much money so often is problematic.
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.

the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.

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 a medium sized suv i find the trunk space to be adequate (much better than the audi q5).
this model has been recalled 2 times since our purchase.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
got into an accident and totaled the front and rear end of the car, the other passenger and i walked out without a scratch.
only to learn, after it was beyond the warranty the oil needed to be added at more and more frequency.
at 100mph the xc60 shows off its stability.
i know that the 300 hp is going to get me into trouble!
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
i got the base model with premium pkg and multimedia pkg.
not just the looks but the price tag was made them both weep.
averaging 25 mpg in town and on highway by driving sensibly.
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.
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.
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.
the interior defines simple elegance.
it's tight and very comfortable.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
my wife refuses to take the car in for service due to she is frustrated with the dealer.
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!
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
used comparison tools to look at space, residual value, warranties, gas mileage, standard features, etc.
i get 17 miles per gallon.
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
and since the car takes 87 octane and 5 years free maintenance, the cost of ownership is really good.
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.
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
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 will never buy a volvo again.
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.
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
their software showed no diagnostics so they insisted the camera was working properly.
first of all, don't be afraid to internet shop outside of your geographic area.
now after 500 miles we can honestly say that we are completely pleased with its styling, engine performance, handling, refinement overall fit and finish.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
r-design is a blast.
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.
gas mileage is a little disappointing, 16 in town, 23 on trips.
i bought an r-design for the looks and it has a ridiculous amount of power.
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.
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.
not having a choice for service has been a major mistake.
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.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
well no issues at all here with my xc-60 awd volvo majic blue 5 cyl gas.
we rarely average over 23 mpg.
overall though, i am happy with my purchase.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
the xc60 is far more quiet, smooth and powerful.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
i would suggest that u drive several models to find the right engine, awd v. fwd etc before choosing.
for example, the design of space for storage between the front seats is not very practical.
2.a month later, determined that my windshield adhesive deteriorated causing a leak.
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 gps stinks too.
the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
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.

pkgs. and all of the added safety features are amazing.
i get 17-18 mpg around town, and 19-20 mpg on the highway however, i do have a heavy foot.
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 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.
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

perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
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.
gas mileage has not increased.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
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.
lots of reviewers praise the comfort; it has been more comfortable than toyota highlander, but not by much.
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.
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
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.
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.
most frustrating : the poor service of only volvo dealer in my area.
the volvo brand has always meant quality and safety.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
after 3 trips to the dealer when they insisted the rh blis was working properly, i complained to volvocars usa in nj.
the vehicle has been trouble free for two years of ownership and 25,000 miles of driving.
i have also driven non-r-design versions and they are also quite good and much cheaper.

very quiet ride, almost as quiet as the lexus with little outside noise.
it was a lease turn-in with 3,000 miles (great story there) and we paid around $40k with an extended warranty.
"simply google volvo oil consumption", then you begin to learn...
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
the cup holders are also positioned so that can they interfere with the gearshift.
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.
took it for service repetedly.
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.
ours has everything except blind spot warning.

i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).
this car really kicks and has smooth power throughout all stages of driving (highway, local, cruising, etc.).
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
the xc60 is great on the highway: smooth, fast enough, quiet, stable, and big enough to inspire confidence.

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.
it is a very sharp looking little suv, and for its class, it is reasonably priced!
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
i took it for regular maintenance at a volvo dealer and took very good care of it.
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.
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!)
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.
i bought the 2015 volvo xc60 as a demo with low miles about six weeks ago and i really like it.
drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.
our first and last volvo, worst car we have ever owned we buy a newer used car about every 12 months.
i get about 28 mpg on the highway using regular gas.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.
just me but i want it to get at least 350000 miles on it.
the car has 9 inches of ground clearance that is 3 inches more than mercedes and audi.
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.
there is no reason to spend extra for the turbo unless the "rush" is important.
but did i buy a lemon or just need to work out the kinks.
the blis package has some issues, it gives you false readings quiet often, that being said it saved me a few times.
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 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.
purchased this vehicle as replacement for wife's 1999 ford explorer (350k miles).
it took the dealership over 1 week to fix the problem and get the part.

Car owners experiences
the subaru uses a camera that can easily be blinded if you are driving into the sun.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.
computer has had several glitches generating problem messages regarding functions in the vehicle.
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
the interface for radio and ac and tech is somewhat simple, but the car has fantastic safety tech, and the simple interface is nice.
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.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
i owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
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 hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.
very comfortable ride, but sometimes the engine gets fussy.
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 engine is sweet, and i mean sweet.
shift into sport mode and stomp on it and the acceleration is instant.
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!
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.
after years of sport sedan driving we wanted more space for things and a higher driving position for traffic.
have most of the bells and whistles (nav, backup camera, sound system) and they are very nice.
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.
fits the kids comfortably in the back with the integrated booster and serves as an adequate backup family hauler when not using our xc90.
the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
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.
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.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
-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.
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....
in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
the 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
safety is unequaled.
interior, ride, handling (much better than pilot, which is a boat), electronic features all excellent.
pirelli tires are excellent.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
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

love that it is a pzev and awd, and i expect better mileage sans turbo.
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.
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).
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

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.
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).
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.
this is a great car for the driver who wants to feel the road, have less body roll and tighter steering.
only complaint thus far is really dumb key start thingamajig.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
i thought a volvo suv would be boring and too old-fashioned but i was wrong.

one unexpected finding was the seat comfort.
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
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 have owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
extended warranty does not cover glass issues.
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!
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 held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
fits three kids comfortably in the back with the integrated booster and serves as an adequate backup family hauler when not using our mini-van.
your also going to have to be more careful with those 20" rims - and tires will be more expensive.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
i am not thrilled with the lack of steering feel, but the vehicle will take fast corners and sticks to the roadexcellently.
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 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.
performance with the 3.2 engine is good.
the quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
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.
its safety features were top of the line.
even in regular mode i've been impressed with the transmission.
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
you turn a dial to adjust the temperature, you don't scroll through your touch screen.
its awd system is not the best, with its 60(front)/40(back) split.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
the batteries kept dying, i had to get three new batteries in three years, two in an 8 month period.
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
i'd recommend this suv to anyone looking for a nice vehicle (family or not).
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.
zero turbo lag....max torque is ready and willing anywhere in the rev range.
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
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
most comfortable seats on the road.
the seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.
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
city safety, climate, nav, media, tech, and bliss packages w/satelite radio and remote keyless entry...
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 subaru uses a camera that can easily be blinded if you are driving into the sun.
i have blind spot technology and the protection package, both features i find helpful.
with this volvo, you'd still hit the car, but at a slow speed.
very comfortable seats front and back.
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.

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.
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.
i need power and it needs to look good as well.
-false seat belt alarms (not yet resolved) - city stop activating twice with no obstacles in the way, terrifying my wife and two boys.
the interior defines simple elegance.
fact is, i really liked the seats in the car and driving it was fun, except when it broke!
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.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.

the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.

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 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.
xenon lights and decent gas mileage.
the tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
the leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one i looked at had not held up well.
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
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.

2.a month later, determined that my windshield adhesive deteriorated causing a leak.
if you can swing it, i definitely recommend the t6 version with the 300hp, 325 lb torque turbo inline 6 engine.
man those are good tires and not real noisy and on a trip they would go around corners fast and great, surprised me.
the only other complaint is the information/blue tooth system is not very intuitive.
i held back on it before because the audio/nav in the 09-10 was an absolute joke..but the 2011 version is great!
popping noise in the driver's seat never fixed.

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.
city safety was tested on my car at the dealer, boy did it work as designed.
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!)
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.

couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
sharp looking vehicle, awd, great ground clearance.
lot more good cargo room compared to infinity and the electronic features are easy to work.
computer has had several glitches generating problem messages regarding functions in the vehicle.
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 navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
i would suggest that u drive several models to find the right engine, awd v. fwd etc before choosing.
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.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
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 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.
i got the base model with premium pkg and multimedia pkg.
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.
a couple of annoying things about it are the slow acceleration and some comfort issues.
there is no timing belt.
volvo just doesn't do sport seats right.
this is the first automatic transmission i have owned in years and i am really impressed with the engine/transmission combination.
i cannot tell you how many times ive hit my head trying to maneuver my sons car seat into the middle seat.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.

they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.

bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.

i had replace them because they warped, it made the steering wheel shake violently when i went 45 mph or faster.
fun, comfy, elegant, quick and the laser adaptive cruise control is spectacular.
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.
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.
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....
they use very nice soft to the touch materials in their cars that its passenger appreciate.
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.

i owned a 2010 t6 awd and paid for the polestar upgrade (+30 hp).
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.
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.
the local volvo dealer had to contact other dealers on how to check the oil level from the info system.
the power steering reservoir/lines were replaced after steering effort was erratic.
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 bluetooth and technology interface works perfectly, and i find the controls to be fairly easy to navigate.
complaints (minor) are no change holder in center console.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
with this volvo, you'd still hit the car, but at a slow speed.
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 honda and acura use "radar" too, and are very nice for the price.
the smallest press on the gas pedal can make the rpms jump from 1200 to 4000.
i bought a 2013 volvo xc60 3.0l v6 turbo.
no hunting for gears at all and in sport mode the transmission really holds a gear.
besides the obvious reputation for safety, volvos have continued to improve their reliability, looks, and amenities over the years.
the dealer kept the car for 2 days and finally diagnosed a failed rh blis camera.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
sport mode is fast with tight paddle shifters and body hugging contoured seats providing comfort after a long day of touring.
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 xc60 is the first volvo suv that i have purchased for myself.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
the gps stinks too.
i have led headlights that have the active bending feature which helps when driving at night through passes.
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
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 navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.

after comparing and doing research for many months, i bought this car new mostly for the design (exterior and interior) and value.
their software showed no diagnostics so they insisted the camera was working properly.
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.
not suv like at all, as it has a nice suspension and very confident handling.
ours has everything except blind spot warning.
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.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
it is also built a bit stronger, and seats you wonderfully.
the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
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 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 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.

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.
drives very nicely, very comfortable front and back seats, lots of cargo room.

i bought a 3.2 awd new 2 years ago and drove it 26k miles.
i love the rain sensor, and i really appreciate all the safety features (parking assist, blis, rear camera).
for what it's worth, we put our 18 yr old in a 10 year old s40 for safety.
this xc60 is the perfect size.
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.
awesome, nic looking excelllent performance n dry, wet and snow weather.
also, i chose the base engine and it is more than adequate and zippy.
the rear cargo area is spacious enough to accommodate my road bike or mountain bike, foregoing noisy, wind resisting sport racks.
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.
this is the first automatic transmission i have owned in years and i am really impressed with the engine/transmission combination.
volvo cares deeply about the safety of their buyers and unlike other car brands that put luxury first or convenience they put safety first.
with v-shaped inspired scandinavian design.. it looks stunning, specially the rear tail lights (speacially at nite)..
also, there are many little features that make you happy about this car, such as the interior lighting while driving and a lot more.
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.
there are a few things i would change about the interior design though.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
and, aesthetically, the wood on the center console would have been nice.
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 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.

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 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 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.
bluetooth and ipod functionality is unintuitive.
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!
acceleration and handling are great for a crossover, and the car feels so solid and secure when driving.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
great seats, handles great in the snow, lots of passenger and cargo space.
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.

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.

wow, what a change, moving from a honda civic hybrid!
and it felt -light?- volvo xc60.
the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
finally they said they knew what was wrong and to wait for a software update, that took 6 months.
the main problem is that it's just a bit too small, miss the pilot's space way more than i thought.
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.

the navigation/sensor software is functional but not very intuitive, especially compared to systems in other luxury brands.
the suv is overall very safe im sure but the accessibility of the backseat is ridiculous.
wanted a boron steel cocoon for the wife, excellent safety rating.
i wanted an suv as i need to get to work in even the worst weather conditions.
the subaru does warn you the collision avoidance system can't "see", but the volvo simply doesn't get blinded.
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.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
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.
nice music system, phone connecion, and ipod connection....
my sister has an 2013 outback and that cars awd system is a lot better than the volvo's, hands down.
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 xc-60 comes with a print manual of about 200 pages and there is an on-line manual of 400 pages.
well worth the extra couple of grand for the drive-e t6 engine.

the navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both android and iphones is excellent.
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.
while all nice vehicles, i felt the volvo had the best balance of performance, utility, and price.
got into an accident and totaled the front and rear end of the car, the other passenger and i walked out without a scratch.
electronics, etc.
i like this cars parking sensors, they've saved me countless times.
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.
have the turbo and it is a zippy awesome driving experience.
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
the tan interior is lighter than i expected so bought stain protection out of fea--it is doing its job.
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!)
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 issues -engine oil leak - new gasket was fitted -since the oil leak repair we have topped -up the engine oil.
the cup holders are also positioned so that can they interfere with the gearshift.
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 purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.
sport mode is eager and even more so when the dtsc is turned off.
and while it\u2019s not a sports car, the xc60 is also fun and comfortable on twisty back roads.
what the iihs testing doesn't tell you when it compares these systems, is that volvo uses both radar and a camera.
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
the volvo handles almost as well-the audi was shorter and and lower, a sports car in disguise.

had to stay and worked day shift eve shift and mid shift, well that paid for my tires lol.
the blind spot warning system works well.
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.
volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable.
my sister has an 2013 outback and that cars awd system is a lot better than the volvo's, hands down.
the driver/passenger heat/ac lacks synching which has become fairly common.
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.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
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 also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
having looked at the audi, bmw, and volvo reviews for a fast suv, i tried and then bought a xc60.
after years of sport sedan driving we wanted more space for things and a higher driving position for traffic.
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.
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
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!
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 car does drive nice and has good performance, by far its best point.
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 tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
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 manual does not describe how to do it my wife or daughter still can\u2019t check the oil level using the information system.
zero turbo lag....max torque is ready and willing anywhere in the rev range.
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.
in order to reach something easily (while driving), it has to be in one of the two cup holders.
engine overall is average.
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'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.

in less than one year: a piece of the sunroof fell off and the rear wiper blade motor burned out.
bluetooth should autosync with which ever phone ins in range, not just the first one on the pair list.
the pirelli tires are not wearing well.
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 configurable dash is cool at first, but eventually you find one of three choices you really like and stick with it.
the blind spot warning system works well.
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.
there is plenty of cargo space, leg and head room, but the electronics such as navigation system and radio display could be updated.
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).
the inside is nice, but i have had many small electrical problems.
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 seats are remarkably comfortable in front and back and that cargo space is good.

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).
size matters!
performance with the 3.2 engine is good.
i purchased a 2016 xc60 this past december since i had a brand new baby and felt we needed a suv for safety.
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.
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 was hesitant to lease a volvo xc60 awd t6 since they are never mentioned in car magazines.
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.
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 automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
really like the improvements to the navi system and update blis package with cross traffic alert.

extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
the acceleration is excellent with the t6.
however if you plan on having more kids good luck to them being comfortable in the back seat!
i purchase a 2015.5 xc-60 4 cylinder turbo charged vehicle in february.
i have a 'whirling' sound that becomes louder with increased speed.
i also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety.
i went with the t6 for the extra handling and body design.
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.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
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).
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.
i bought my 2015.5 volvo xc60 january of 2015, july 2015 transmission goes out completely........no accidents or rough terrain or mishandling of the vehicle in any way.
and we just picked up our first volvo, a 2010 xc50 awd t6 with multimedia, technology package, convenience, and comfort.
the only feature i would change is the start-stop system.
pkgs. and all of the added safety features are amazing.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.
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.
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.
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.

we got the r design version for the tighter handling and steering, plus the design elements which make the car look better.
engine is powerful, handling is more than enough from me (don't usually drive on the rural roads, so don't do sharp turns).
the r-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the swedish racing company polestar (polestar also tunes the suspension of the car).

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.

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 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.
comfortable seats, very little engine noise on highway.
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 tech package is ok, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start.
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
shift into sport mode and stomp on it and the acceleration is instant.
perfect socal freeway vehicle (with surf racks for the beach), especialy with adaptive cruise control, blind spot info system and collision warning.
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.
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.
fits the kids comfortably in the back with the integrated booster and serves as an adequate backup family hauler when not using our xc90.
the automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for l.a. traffic.
the 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.
dealer says it's the tire tread and is expected.
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
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 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.
that is holding this beast from rulling the indian street is no doubt it is the best suv in segment all that it lacks is flexibility in variants and a unestablished brand in but that mean not to consider volvo xc60 is a great car and i would say just go a
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
all volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety.
they use a narrow type tire, i guess it gets down deeper in the snow for better traction.
couple that plant-you-in-your-seat acceleration with fabulous seats, and you've got an hours-on-end cruiser that is unequaled.
am coming from a 2009 x3 3.0si with stick shift.
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
the manual does not describe how to do it my wife or daughter still can\u2019t check the oil level using the information system.
this leak wreaked havoc to my airbag/sunroof sensors, sunroof motor and required full floor interior replacement.

the electronics and build quality of interior materials leave something to be desired.
the subaru uses a camera that can easily be blinded if you are driving into the sun.
the r-design interior/exterior trim accentuate the beauty of this vehicle.

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 cargo area is just what i was looking for and like the idea the seats all lie flat.
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.
i believe i researched, test drove and compared every suv on the market.
exterior trim package and wood inlay.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
options are navi-audio/cold weather package/metallic paint.
i would suggest that u drive several models to find the right engine, awd v. fwd etc before choosing.
the t-5 drive e engine should get 24 in town and about 30 on the highway.
the volvo destroyed both in the safety department.
i live where the speed limits are 80 mph and with this car passing is no issue.
the navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
outstanding sound system with the nav package.
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.
the only feature i would change is the start-stop system.
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.
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.
had to stay and worked day shift eve shift and mid shift, well that paid for my tires lol.
the seats are comfortable, and cargo space is adequate.
the car is very comfortable for tall people, with plenty of leg and head room even with the sunroof.
power when you need it, suspension soaking up all those nasty road imperfections, and a whopping great stereo.
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
interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door.
the local volvo dealer had to contact other dealers on how to check the oil level from the info system.
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
for the amount of money we paid for the vehicle i assumed the backseat would be comfortable which it is not for an adult.
exterior styling - esp taillights is very cool.
and, aesthetically, the wood on the center console would have been nice.
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.
wind whistles through the sunroof area when you go above 40mph (need to get that checked out).
everything from the suspension to the steering to the electrical has been an issue.
remember, that you have the option of getting 19 or 20 inch tires.
extremelly stable, 5 years no payments in service a lot of space, great seats and extemelly safe.
awd, premium, sensus, multimedia, convenience, pcc.
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.
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.
the xc60 was a great compromise for value and features including, of course, safety for my new family.
good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking.
this car is luxurious, beautiful leather seats, best in class, feels solid, tight drive, just stellar car to move your caboose!
both bliss cameras were replaced in 2 years.
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.
new mexico driver review for volvo volvo has been around for decades and have been setting the safety standard for years.
very smooth and nimble handling with t6 engine.
not a whole lot of leg room in backseat, but front passenger seat folds down to tote large loads (10ft 2 bys).
i was looking for more space without sacrificing good looks and performance.
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.
the only plus to the bmw was that i could add a third row of seating.
the inside front tires are not wearing well--so with only 27,000 miles i'll have to replace the tires.
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 owned the xc60 for over 2 months -- 300 hp turbo 6-cyl, awd model.
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
if you can swing it, i definitely recommend the t6 version with the 300hp, 325 lb torque turbo inline 6 engine.
and delay on start up will leave you in a lurch, regardless of "turbo ".
