2006 Volvo S60
|The interior styling & comfort is fantastic||Poor gas mileage|
|Overall safety: many air bags and safety features||Car automatically shifts to maximize fuel efficiency but makes for a bumpy ride|
|Excellent handling and road feel without bumpy, stiff ride.||Interior trim cheapens vehicle due to plastic looking like metal but not metal|
|Styling of the seats - very high quality leather / feel, very comfortable||Trunk storage - spare tire takes up most of trunk.|
|Vehicle weight - not influenced by wind||Bumpy ride due to stiff suspension|
|Ride is very smooth and acceleration is nice||Have no feel for backing distance - need rear camera|
|Seat comfort and convenient controls within reach||Steering wheel lacks impression of high quality|
|Overall styling of the car interior & exterior||Navigation controls - to hard to operate, not intuititive - radio also|
|Interior comfort - took 2500 mile trip and my back don't hurt||Infotainment system controls far too complicated.|
|Performance and acceleration are superb||No awd option for 5 - cylinder model|
