  • Great Vehicle - 2016 Volvo XC60

    Great car with a lot of features. The 6cyl turbo has awesome power and gets this up and going quick, unfortunately they replaced it an eco engine for the newer models.

  • A bumpy ride - 2016 Volvo XC60
    By -

    Paid about 47K for the Platinum package and in general pretty nice car. It's my wife's driver and she's very happy with it. This car is way too rough on bumps etc. My 37K new Honda Pilot is a plush ride comparatively. The XC is peppy and really kicks it, but I'm very disappointed with the joltiness of the ride. The tech package is OK, but lacks walk away locking and you pay a monthly extra for remote start. The driver/passenger heat/ac lacks synching which has become fairly common.

    I bought a 2016 XC60 T5 Premier in Flamenco Red with the Soft Beige leather interior. The only option is the BLIS package. I drive 160 miles a day, mostly on interstate. The XC60 is great on the highway: Smooth, fast enough, quiet, stable, and big enough to inspire confidence. I get about 28 MPG on the highway using regular gas. I generally cruise between 75 and 80 mph, and the XC60 is a fun, satisfying, soothing car to get home in. And while it’s not a sports car, the XC60 is also fun and comfortable on twisty back roads. It’s small enough to feel nimble and pointable—not at all trucky. I can’t compare it to an X3 or Q5, but it compares favorably to my previous Mazda3, especially given the Volvo’s different mission in life. Good steering feel, balance, grip, and braking. The seats are great once you get them right. That took some doing but now I have a great position saved in memory. The leather and other materials seem nice now, but a year-old used one I looked at had not held up well. It had done time in New Mexico—I’m hoping the heat was a factor. The only feature I would change is the start-stop system. It’s an interesting idea and sometimes works well, but more often is an annoyance. It should be permanently defeatable, instead of having to be turned off every time. I also think a back-up camera should be standard, especially from a company known for safety. And it’s a little more rattly than the Japanese cars I’ve owned, but I kind of expected that. Overall this is a great car for me right now. Comfortable, classy, fuel-efficient, satisfying to drive, and, as long as it’s reliable, I’m looking forward to my three daughters using up whatever’s left of it when I’m done.

  • Safety and comfort - 2016 Volvo XC60
    By -

    Review for Volvo Volvo has been around for decades and have been setting the safety standard for years. Not only are volvos safe, but there also comfortable, stylish/perform well, dependable, and affordable. I am a very picky person when it comes to cars and it takes a lot for me to consider a car. When I look at buying a car I look at the overall styling of it, if it is comfortable or not, if it is dependable, but above all I look at how safe it is and in my opinion volvo blows all of these categories out of proportion. SAFETY- As I said before Volvo has been setting the safety standard for years; they have come out with everything from the three point seat belt or pedestrian detection with full auto brake to auto pilot system on cars. Volvo cares deeply about the safety of their buyers and unlike other car brands that put luxury first or convenience they put safety first. All Volvos come standard with a pre-collision system called city safety. In my opinion volvo cars are the safest cars on the road today. COMFORTABLE- Volvo also cares about how comfortable its passengers are. Volvo has gone as far to have special seats designed by orthopedic surgeons to make the ride of a volvo more comfortable. They use very nice soft to the touch materials in their cars that its passenger appreciate. STYLING AND PERFORMANCE- Volvo has sleek designs that set them apart from other auto maker from there Thor Hammer headlights to their distinctive long LED taillights. When you see a Volvo on the road (especially the new ones) you can tell it's a Volvo because of the sleek styling of it.I think that Volvo does a great job of making their cars head turners. For years Volvo did an ok job in the performance, but in the last decade they have really been improving the performance of their cars. All their cars come standard with turbocharge engines, but for those who want a little more of a driving experience like me, you can get a special line of Volvo called the R-Design. The R-designs come with special turbo engines tuned by the Swedish racing company Polestar (Polestar also tunes the suspension of the car). I own a Volvo XC60 R-Design which is a crossover and it feels like I’m driving a sports car like the Lexus IS or BMW 3 Series. Dependability- Volvos are very reliable I have never had a major issue with mine and neither have my family members who have one. There a little more expensive to work on but they’re worth it. AFFORDABILITY- Volvos have a long range of price tags, but for what they are there very reasonably priced. There prices range from lower $30,000-well over $90,000 in the U.S., but you can get a year old volvo in the 20's.

  • It is an expensive car. - 2016 Volvo XC60

    I thought I had preparation to make a deal based on edmunds.com recommendations. I only realize that edmunds.com did not help the clients to make an intelligent guess. The value stated on the edmunds.com is much higher than Kelly Blue Book. So I am not sure if edmunds.com intends to help car seekers or help the car agents. When I got to the car dealer, they made a different gimmick and I end up paying a high price, even beyond what I intended to. There are too many packages and it was not clear what the difference is between Drive-E versus platinum.

  • Waited all my life - 2016 Volvo XC60
    By -

    All I have ever wanted was a Volvo. I could not afford the 90, but test drove it anyway. Bought the 60, even though I am a bells and whistles kind of girl. Boy did I settle. I live in the mountains at over 7000 feet and we get a lot of snow. Even without snow, my drive up the mountain is switchbacks. I need power and it needs to look good as well. Boy, was I rudely awakened. The difference in the 60 and 90 is HUGE! Ok, I got over it and took the 60. Empty nester was my excuse. Point A to B. The eco sucks. Restart is so loud. And delay on start up will leave you in a lurch, regardless of "turbo ". Ok turn off eco. Car surges. At a complete stop and it moves ar least a few inches more before complete stop. Please gage your distance. Less than 1000 miles and black sutt in tail pipes. Backup cam, $1200 add on stays on when in drive. Interior, excellent, luxurious, except when the passenger door does not unlock when you push button on driver's side door. I received a great deal for my trade in. Rebates and discounts were unbelievable. Customer service was impeccable. But did I buy a lemon or just need to work out the kinks. New Mexico driver

    This is a BIG SUV, but wow, it is great to drive. Still learning devices and how they work. I need a bigger garage for it! This review was for the XC90 T6

  • Problems with ECO+ mode - 2016 Volvo XC60
    By -

    I loved my Volvo for the first 5k miles. Then I started noticing the efficiency/eco mode was acting sluggish. A fuse was recalled related to the function and I had it replaced, but there's been no improvement. My car has died on me 3xs in the last few months while in Eco mode, and even when I'm not in Eco mode, my transmission is sluggish and choppy. I've taken it in to the dealer and they can't find any error messages or issues, and so the problem with my expensive, new lux suv remains. I should've gotten the Audi .....
