Volvo S60 Reliability and Durability: 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.

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
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.
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.

2011 4dr Wagon 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Have not had a single repair done in 20K miles.
2010 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
The build quality of the Acura is impressive. Materials and interior styling are not necessary luxurious, but solid and feel pleasant to the touch. The historical quality of a 4 cyl/ 6 speed manual Honda should be top notch.
2010 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
A total of more than 33000 miles with this car and the only issue of note is a minor rattle that came up that I isolated to the dash gauge cluster cover. My local dealership took care of this under warranty and haven't had any further issues. The engine is a thing of beauty; just give it regular oil and filter changes.

2009 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4

This is my first Acura. However, the brand has a good reputition of reliability. Yet to be seen and hope it all true.
2007 4dr Sedan 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The car has only had maintenance (minimal at that) and no repairs. It shows no signs of wear or aging.
2007 4dr Sedan 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Rated among the top for reliability. Nice warranty on Certified used.

TROUBLE FREE
2006 4dr Sedan 205-horsepower 2.4L I4

I have only had one problem that was quickly fixed under warranty, and it was not drive train related. Otherwise not a problem.
