    What does this car say about you?

    It says that I want quality, with economy but I am not someone who has to have a badge on the car to prove it.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    The general consensus is that the car is a quality product without being flashy or ostentatious.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    I would buy another Volvo without question, but not an S60. The XC 60, with the same engine and specification would be my choice.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    We will probably go down to one car. At the moment the car of choice is the BMW 2 series Active Tourer, 218D SE.

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    The performance is impressive and if you concentrate , the car can be hustled along. It can wallow around a bit if you are heavy handed though.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy, if you drop the mirrors. The car has front and rear sensors which are a great help. I would not recommend the park assist pilot function as I have redesigned two alloys when using it.

  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    I am less than happy with the park assist as the car is over eager to self harm its alloys against kerbs. I don't use the function anymore.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Its not hugely practical but a pleasure to be in.
