    Question Opinions on Volvo Cars

    My wife is about to purchase a 2003 Volvo S60 2.4T. Anyone have some info on this car? How about an extended warranty?

    Volvo makes good cars. Their servicing is relatively pricey and their after-warranty parts are more expensive than you'd want them to be.

    A 100,000 mile full-coverage warranty should cost the dealer less than $900. I'd buy the warranty, but don't pay much over a grand for it.

    My Father, who has never owned a foreign car in his life, is leasing one for his wife right now. 2002, same as you described. I was VERY surprised when I drove the car. It has a lot of the same feel as the BMW. The 2.4 winds out a bit to get some serious acceleration, but overall, I think it is a great car.

    I''ve got a 2001 V70 with the t5 turbo. Car runs very strong except for a bad turbo lag. All the consumer reports talked about electrical problems, and they were right. The car goes thru light bulbs on a monthly basis. I thing every bulb in my car has burnt out in the 2 years I've owned it. Nice car, very safe, but I wouldn't buy another one.
