In cliched for sale ad stylee I am testing the water on the S60. I've seen a few things of late that I fancy but the boss says its one out one in and strictly in that order and I get itchy feet - that said every time I get in the S60 I think how ace it is - and will be a great winter daily especially with the heated seats!!

Given its an AS family car I am offering it here first. The original CMS ad is in the link - I've priced a bit north of that as in the last 3 months its had a full service, a new alternator and the boot actuator fixed. Scrubs up very very nicely and if this bloody rain stops I'll get some better pics!

So right now its around 88k on the clock - has a comprehensive though not full service history and very solid in all the places these usually rot. Has the signature S60 groans and creeks but all checked out OK and full service in June along with the new alternator. In the last 12 months its had the thick end of a grand spent including the cam belt by Volvo specialist in Glasgow.

Full leather which is in great condition - automatic pulls and kicks down nicely and it goes like shit through a goose. Stereo is dolby pro logic (never understood why the hell you want that if there is no movie on) but it sounds amazing - seriously amazing. None of that autoshite tape player nonsense this has CD player and holds 4 at a time - if I forget it might come with a free Garth Brooks CD!

Has a working phone - with period handset but also hands free and a funky speaker in drivers headrest - takes a SIM in the dash and works great. In the rear there is a bin - its a holder that you hang a bin bag off - class!

She also still sports her autoshite sticker with pride!

Quite rare in red - but the colour suits it. As you can see from the CMS ad there are a couple of marks and dinks but nothing too painful - worst is a very small and I mean small blob of rust on boot lid.

The values of these seem all over the place but I think its worth the asking price - if no interest I'll add some premium and try it elsewhere. Did I mention how fast this thing is - and not as bad as you might think on the gas....honest!

Car is in Dunfermline - close to rail and air hubs. I am in London most weeks so could arrange a drop off along that route probably. I did a day trip to Birmingham recently and it was super comfy - effortless and the seats are like armchairs.

Open to swaps potentially

PS - I am crap at attaching pics so apologies in advance!

Why has it appreciated in value by 300 quid in last year?

Why not? Does it matter if it is on for more than last time? I mean people can make money on cars if they want to.

not looking to make money - the 300 quid is towards cost of alternator and fixing boot lock. It’s had full service too recently but that’s just bau. Wanted to offer it back on here at ‘cost’ before chancing arm elsewhere

These things are great.
Looks a really attractive asking price tbh I would have asked for more if it were mine

Just getting used to my 'new' 2001 S60 2.4T auto and I must say am rather taking to it.  Even that one goes like shit off a shovel.

 

Red very much suits these, is yours not a Geartronic?  Thought all the T5 autos were.

Proper 5-speed auto in this one, no flappy paddles or bugger all.

It was ace but I just never gelled with it... hope it finds a good home.

I had the 2.8 twin turbo se T6 S80 not that long ago.
It had the awful geartronic slush box and that ultimately killed it (well got it exported to Poland).

I was a bit gutted because when it was good it was EPIC!!

Now on ebay and gumtree with muppet tax added - bracing for daft questions/offers etc!

Mrs SC says it has to go - drive looks like Arthur Daley’s pad just needs bunting!!
