Happy New Years Eve: 2004 Volvo S60R

The 2004-2007 Volvo S60R is a modern hot sedan designed to compete with M3, AMG, S4 and other fast sedans, but it was more muted and slower than the competition.  Probably safer too. Regardless, the S60R is a fun family sedan that errs on the side of luxury and usability instead of raw performance...but a cat back exhaust and chip helps turn up the zoom zoom. Find this 2004 Volvo S60R offered for $5500 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. That shifter looks like a joystick from an '80s arcade game. It just needs a couple of flat red buttons next to it for Jump and Fire.

  2. “ Absolutely no issues mechanically “
    Too bad about the electronics in modern Volvos

  3. What is our current position on listings that make no attempt (even one that insults the intelligence) to explain a salvage title? Is that somehow better than "got a scratch on the rear bumper and insurance totaled the car?"
