I am considering Volvo automobiles for an upcoming purchase. Fuel economy is a big motivator for us and I learned the later model years in the 2nd generation S60 featured a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine resulting in improved fuel economy.

My other questions involve the Haldex AWD system. How robust is this? Typical service issues? Estimated annual maintenance costs associated with this subsystem?

Our main interests are AWD, fuel economy and a car that is not too large for my wife to handle well (She's used to a Civic sedan!). I thought the S40 might be a better choice for vehicle size, but the S60 is not much larger and I have not seen fuel economy as high as the S60/
