2002 Volvo S60 Base 2.4 non turbo from North America
The best sedan from Volvo ever
The ignition cylinder locked up at about 160,000 miles.
Passenger front seat ripped at seam at 125,000.
Passenger CV boot torn at 150,000.
The throttle response was smooth and even; no jerk.
Acceleration is strong for a non turbo.
The stereo (base model) was outstanding with chest pounding bass.
The cruise control lacks an incremental increase/decrease feature.
Driver seat adjustment and memory is a luxury that spoils the various drivers that use the car in our household.
The heated seats are addictive in fall/winter seasons.
Light cleaning wipers are a novelty that is not really needed.
Burns through rear position light bulbs almost every two months, it seemed to be a common quirk with fellow S60 owners I encountered.
Dealer service was excellent but pricey; I changed to a local independent for service.
Styling is tastefully sexy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
