It's been a little over 5 months since I got the S60 and I've put just shy of 3,000mi on it. (If nothing else I've saved gas by not driving anywhere. ) So far I have mostly good things to report. It's a little early to come to a conclusion on fuel economy since the car is new, almost all of my miles have been around town, and this winter was horrendous. No past year in my mileage logs can possibly compete for prolonged low temperatures. That said, I was able to find a few tanks from the V70 that should be comparable based on similar average temperature and average speeds. The result is a 30-40% improvement in FE. The S60 is only 100lb lighter, I haven't been driving fast enough for aerodynamics to be worth much, and I've been commuting along the same route that I always have. In short, the Drive-E 4-pot does as well as one could hope for a 240hp engine. In all other respects I'm still really pleased with the S60. It does all the things that a car in its segment is supposed to do. It's the first car I've owned in years that I feel like driving just for the sake of spending some time on a back road in nice weather. (My old Accord Coupe was probably the last.) The only black marks come in the form of a few intermittent rattles, the most significant of which was an easy fix and the others seem to have gone dormant since spring arrived. The only funny thing is that as much as I like the car, I haven't really "bonded" with it. I don't know what that's about. It could be that I just don't care about these things as much as I used to. That wouldn't be a terrible thing. Or it could be that I have to drive it somewhere other than to and from work. Or maybe this is just "meeting your hero" syndrome. It could be that the car does its job so well and with so little drama that there's nothing left to be excited about. There's no sense of accomplishment. To be continued. Road trip season awaits... ***Edit*** 5,000th post!
