2003 Volvo S60 D5 S 2.4 turbo diesel 163bhp from UK and Ireland
Just hope the new is as good as the old model
Dashboard clocks worked very intermittently after 100,000 miles. This was due to the earth having come undone due to a bad mechanic, and being jump started from a 96 Hilux eight times in one day!! Oops, known problem in S60 and V70 derivatives. Volvo say YOU NEED A NEW ONE @ €1200. Rubbish!! Got one from scrappies for €50 30,000 miles ago with no problems. Yet...
Am personally doomed to a 96 Series III Toyota Hilux Surf during the week for 800 miles per week. Have a 99 Porsche Boxster for weekends. Would take the missus' Volvo any day over those two for any journey.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
