Reliability and Durability of the Volvo S60: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
reported to be superior, back with an excellent warranty
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
still practical
2005 4dr Sedan turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic 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 247hp 2.3L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
So far no unscheduled mantianance required.
2002 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I5
5-speed 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.
Reliability and Durability of the Volvo S60: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 2.5L I5
6-speed manual AWD
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 300hp 2.5L I5
5-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 197hp 2.4L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic 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.
