Hi all!

At present I'm driving a '97 mercedes c180 and the problems I've had with the electronic auto transmission is nobodies business, this thing needs to go up in a puff of smoke!!!!
I'm seriously considering an s60 2.0t auto and need a bit of advise.
Anyone out there had any serious problems with one? Cos if I get another car with problems like the one i have then i'll go nuts. I've read some reviews and they seem good but I can't find anything that suggests it has big issues,maybe they haven't, just need reassuring I suppose.
Found an '02 2.0t se auto for £9,995.00, with 31k on the clock- Good or Bad?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Finchy,
I've been quite satisfied with my 03, which now has 30K miles. Other threads in this forum will give you insights into problems -- the throttle body apparently goes, although I need to find more details before I face that situation myself. I haven't had any significant problems, but I share some of the complaints about the design -- awful turning radius, no interior trunk release, so-so seat warmers, to name the most significant -- but these are pretty minor. Overall, I've been quite pleased by the quality. Good luck with your decision.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi Finchy, I drive the 2.4T Geartronic - and its automatic transmition is a dream.
I highly recommend it. The only problems I had with the S60 was a cruise control unit, which was casued by a faulty streeing wheel switch (replaced by the Dealer - free) and currently a small problem with the Air Condition (Climet control) - most threds here saying its a small issue.

Go for volvo. I would definatly would buy it again.
