2006 Volvo S60 Review:
I initially hated the 60, wondering, after owning four other volvos since 1985, why I bought a gussied up Ford Contour instead of a real automobile.
Well, slowly but surely, I began to love the car, and have arrived at where I was with the other Volvos: I now enjoy taking care of it and keeping it mechanically intact. My favorite to take care of was my'99 S70 that my daughter is still driving with 200K miles on it. Now that was a cherry vehicle.
I like the car and learned to cope with the facts that the doors don't close like european Volvos and the car doesn't smell like a traditional Volvo, and the car has rattles that Volvos usually don't. I suppose even Volvos had to change, but am still suspicious that the change happened after Ford bought the company.
