How my used Volvo with 35,000 miles is holding up.

2013 Volvo S60 T6

My Volvo is a comfortable ride thanks to the leather seats and balanced suspension. However, the car rides very low to the ground, which makes it difficult to approach steep hills or driveways with high curbs. The steering base is quite wide for a sedan, so navigating quick turns can be slightly more cumbersome. Based on the age of the car, there isn't as much 'get up and go' as you might expect from a car that's 6 years old, and it sometimes takes beyond 60 seconds to speed up. Ultimately my biggest concern is that this car, which runs best on mid grade gas, is not extremely fuel efficient. Allegedly it should be getting 23 mi/gallon, but if the vehicle is not kept in tip top shape that plummets tremendously.

2013 s60 Volvo review from a starter driver.

2013 Volvo S60 T5

I love my Volvo. The mileage is decent for the year and make but it would not be ideal for large cities. It is brake is touchy which I personally like. It can stop quickly and accelerate fast. Volvo's have always been known for their safety and the car meets the standard. It will stop any time you get too close to a car and you are under 25 mph. That has saved my family from making careless mistakes. It connects to Bluetooth and aux. I can charge my phone in the car as well. All in all it is very practical while keeping its comfort.

A sleek and luxurious auto experience

2013 Volvo S60 T5

My car is sleek, compact, but yet has room for full sized adults to have adequate leg room. I enjoy the aero-dynamic comfort of the seats. It reminds me of being in a massage chair if it had the ability to massage. It's heating feature almost does the trick. The sound system is first class as well as the Bluetooth, Sirius XM radio, and disc player. There is a great amount of trunk space as well.
