Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

You'll Like The 2008 Volvo S60 If...

If you're looking for a premium sedan with some style, the 2008 Volvo S60's sculpted hood, trunk and aggressive wheel and tire packages give it a much bolder look than its understated German and Japanese rivals. The S60 is also a bit wider than most of its competitors, which translates into generous shoulder room.

I have to replace bulbs so frequently, it's kind of annoying.

It is a safe and reliable car. I like the feeling of how it drives. There are some blind spots around where the windshield meets the door that do not exist in other models (I used to have a S70).

- Toni R

It has a semi-manual mode if you adjust the stick slightly

My car is white which I really like despite it looking dirty more easily, I just clean it more frequently. I think the leather seats are very comfortable and it drives well.

- Elizabeth M

Safety is my first priority. It is built strong.

Love that it is dependable, comfortable. It is sporty and has a lot of get up and go dislike that the AC takes too long to get cool and it is hard for me to get out of.

- Pam R
