I did in fact drive a Volvo friday afternoon. It was a 18-wheeler, but it was a Volvo. I had to do some commercial vehicle enforcement training with it... them things are hard to maneuver, I can tell you that much. I hope your car performs better than that beast did. But, I've never driven a Volvo car, lol.

I'm impressed. I know Volvo's are good rigs, but usually when someone get's a new car on here, it is a $60,000 Beamer, or Benz ect. Then again, that usually only happens to those in the 16-20 year old range.

Congrats, FlightLevel! My first car was a Volvo - an '82 244GL, which I bought used. My parents still drive Volvos, albeit of the boxy variety ('89 244DL and '91 744GL). They sure have come a long way in terms of style, I'll say! I sat in an S60 at both the dealership here in Milwaukee and at the auto show. What a great car! What were your deciding factors in getting it? I'd be interested to know.
It IS a great feeling, buying a new car and driving it off the lot for the first time. I bought my first-ever new car last October, a 2001 Toyota RAV4, dark metallic green with grey interior, four-wheel drive, five speed. I love it!

It has Ontario plates because I got this picture off of a website. I don't have a digital camera so I can't upload pics of my actual car.
For 2001, the Volvo S60 is available in three trims. The S60 is available in the base, 2.4T, and the T5. The S60 engine for the base trim is a 2.4L with 168 horsepower. The 2.4T trim adds turbo, which boosts the horsepower to 197. The T5 trim comes with a high performance, turbo charged, 2.3L engine with 247 horsepower.

I have been driving Volvo for a really long time. I also had a Ford Expedition that I hated. So, I took my old Volvo (1994) and the Ford Expedition (2000), traded them both in and then bought this Volvo.

I test drove that s60 with my dad last decemeber. We liked it a lot, except it only came in manual and I really wanted stick. didn't end up getting a new car though when my college grades came through, instead electing to fix up our older saab.
