Our long time use of Volvo

We are long term Volvo owners and presently own Volvo S60. We are retired and use the car for local transport and also for holidays. These days we do not tow a caravan but have in the past with a previous S60 which travelled long distances both paved and gravel roads as it was a cross country model as is this car. Would have liked a better spare wheel for outback travel though. The car is serviced once a year Show details

ABSOLUTELY BEST OF THE BEST

My Volvo S60 T6 is a solid car on the road in all aspects from safety , performance , comfort and design . This sporty elegant car can handle all weathers from wet to snowy roads . Super fast car from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds . The price I paid is a fraction compared to the rivals from german to Italian cars . This two tons of metal is like a tank on the road yet is super quick and comfortable . Show details

Amazing car

I got this car a month ago from Great Buy Autos in Cabramatta +61 406 312 522 .For a 20 year old car it runs like a pearl no issues and all original parts even the spare tyre in the boot is the original. Our mechanic Mic from Essential auto repairs was brilliant and came out for free and checked it over the car yard gave us free rego and free 2 years warranty and roadside assistance. So pleased with the value and quality of this purchase it even came with an up to date Log Book. Show details

DEFINITELY A CLASS OF ITS OWN

Love the power and how precise the handling is especially around bends, it grips the road perfectly. With beautiful Tan leather interior shows off how prestige and its true class. Wish dash was a little more colourful. Its ok on fuel, but could be better. Definite luxury which has blown away the sceptics.

Happy with the car

Fuel consumption is reasonable. Exterio/interio design is great. Repair is, of course, very expensive. I've got broken light and it was quoted around 800 to replace. Otherwise it all good. I was lucky to buy it with spare tyre (small one). It sits in the boot and takes space, however everyone says it is a better option than this temporary repair system.

Terrible, expensive LEMON!!!!!!!!!

The car looks good, but it is extremely heavy and despite the sporty appearance does not handle like a sporty car at all.

The interior is very good, but may not be the best in it's class.

I don't mind the seats which make me feel like a F1 pilot, in fact I feel very comfortable but I wouldn't feel like that if I was bigger.

I must say that these cars are not for the people on a budget, because the maintenance costs could run into thousands. You need to like the brand and the type of car in question.

from what I have researched the common problems are the transmission ( design flaw) and electronics, relating to engine performance. I concur these are the problems, on top of leaking oil, and numerous other issues.

Great car but hard to service

Powerful 2.0T that delivers 175KW with fast shifting DCT. Very spacious interior. The car has been solid in terms of mechanics. No faults yet at 65000KM. Seats are super comfy. It's definitely a family car that's got a little kick. I find this car a bit too big and especially maneuvering in tight parking spaces can take quite a lot of back and forth.

The car is perfect if it's brand new!

Something expensive you can think of in your life. But if you love cars and feel difference you don't mind to spent money given the quality of the car. I always get this car serviced with Volvo but how I had end up in great trouble have no idea.
Any thing you can think of in an ideal car, I have drive 2010 Toyota Aurion but when get back to 2002 Volvo I can feel the luxury of Volvo
Super expensive

Hi, I am presently looking at purchasing a 2011 S60 T6 which is the turbo 6cyl engine 78000 km
Is there anything in particular I should be looking out for with these cars, it will be my first ever Volvo, additionally are these models particularly expensive to service?
Thank you
