Volvo S60 Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 237hp 2.0L I4
6-speed automated manual AWD
reported to be superior, back with an excellent warranty
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 325hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
still practical
2005 4dr Sedan turbocharged 237hp 2.0L I4
6-speed automated manual AWD
Have owned for 4.5 years. Wife and I purchased based on experiences of 2 family members who had good experiences. We have been stranded once (in driveway) due to faulty shift lock mechanism, otherwise have put 151,000 essentially pain-free KM on this.
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
So far no unscheduled mantianance required.
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The non-turbocharged engine in this car will last forever, with the right maintenance and upkeep. The car only needs to see the dealership once every 7,500 miles, which is nice, and services are not overly expensive.
Volvo S60 Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2004 4dr Sedan Volvo is not willing to take responsibility for the AWD system braking on the R. Many reported issues costing the customer over $2000 to repair.
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 325hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
RELIABILITY, car has intermittent electrical problem that cripples the vehicle with no notice. Dealer has had the car for a combined total of over 6 weeks and still has not fixed the problem. For this reason I will never buy a Volvo again. Google "Volvo electrical problems" and you will see it quite common
2003 4dr Sedan turbocharged 237hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Lots of little problems such as the front tires rubbing the inner fender wall when having the steering wheel cranked all the way left or right. Also, began to hear a noticeable valve ticking at 60k miles.
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Reliablilty is probably on the lower end of mediocre. This can only be said of my car and I am the second owner. I think most of the components are dependable and well made with a few exceptions. one being the bosch coil packs, they die; a different brand is cheap on ebay to replace (12.00 usd new) and work awesome but about 60.00usd + for one bosch, which suck. period. instrument cluster is finicky in some of these, including mine: (made in phillipines??, not japan etc) I say this b/c most of the car was made in belgium, germany, france and on...Mechanically the car is quite good, I don't expect anything non electrical to go anytime soon. But again, expect some minor to moderate electrical issues, esspecially if like any car it has been in an accident. all the forum horror stories about ETM and limp home mode and all that have been completely a non-issue over a year later for my s60. Volvo followed the recall for my particular car and remedied it before, I assume, it ever became an issue back in 2002.

Reliable car.
2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

Remains to be seen. Bought on basis of good reputation for this car.
2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
excellent
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
They have a well-deserved excellent reputation. I had one several years ago and it just kept going. Sold it with 134k with the original clutch. Replaced the water pump, a dash switch, and the horn in eleven years.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
There are many good cars in this regard, but Honda is again one of the leaders, as well as having the least expensive parts for maintenance and repair, according to a CAA Survey a couple of years ago.
2008 2dr Coupe 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It is a low maintenance, low cost to own, and long lasting small vehicle that can be driven "worry free".
2008 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.5L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
does what it is supposed to do

little things go wrong
2007 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Had an oil leak at 27,000 miles that required warranty work. It was a known problem. On returning home I found the engine grounding strap had not been reattached.
2007 2dr Coupe 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Came off the lot with many rattles and squeaks. Had to have both rear bearings replaced and had a third gear issue. Had to have transmission rebuilt to repair 3rd gear.
2006 2dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Major rear suspension problems that Honda refused to correct under Warranty. Definately my last Honda. I had to replace the rear control arms out of my own pocket
