The S60 is a quality car that transports my family in comfort and quietness. The engine pulls really well, but a 2.4l petrol should!
People have complained about the lack of space, particularly the boot, but we are a family of four and easily transport ourselves and associated clutter (including a pram) where ever we need to go.
As it is nine years old I expect things to go wrong from time to time, especially as it is getting towards 90K miles.
Overall I am very satisfied, and so are the family!

Under-rated car but absolutely incredible value for money. The low speed urban ride could be better and it's not as sharp a drive as some of the competition - however, the D5 185 engine is superb and the car is a fantastic car to do long journeys in because of its refinement, comfort, effortless power and impressive economy. Handsome looking thing too with a good quality interior and a fab stereo.

the S60R looks just like an ordinary Volvo, but has 300 bhp and 4-wheel drive. This means it's reasonably quick but looks like any other boring Volvo. In snow, it's awsome and I've never had to put chains on yet!

A comfortable ride, excellent power, great handling apart from the roll felt in cornering. And amazing space for driver and passengers front and rear with great capacity with folding split rear seats.

I like it a lot. Loads of power yet economical to run. Service bills are expensive and the steering lock is appalling but very comfortable to drive.

Very safe and comfortable, servicing costs high but good dealerships. Not as dynamic to drive as some rivals but an effortless long distance car.
