2001 Volvo S60 Problems

The automatic transmission may develop shifting problems and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to internal component failure and/or software issues. It is always best to be sure the transmission control module has the latest software installed when any major transmission repair is performed.

It is not uncommon for the exterior light bulbs to burn out prematurely. No repair option has been reported other than replacing the failed bulb.

Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps.

2001 Volvo S60 Recalls

Volvo is recalling all models equipped with Garmin 760 Portable Global Positioning System units because the battery may overheat, which could lead to a fire. Volvo advises owners to stop using the Garmin device immediately and consult the Garmin website to determine if they have a defective unit. The unit's battery will be replaced and a spacer inserted to prevent the problem from reoccurring. This will be performed free of charge.

When exposed to certain environmental conditions (hot climate and temperature cycling) over time and in combination with varying fuel quality, the fuel pump can develop cracks in the fuel pump flange. If cracks develop, a fuel smell and/or leak may be noted. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump as necessary to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is R220.

ON CERTAIN VEHICLES ORIGINALLY SOLD IN OR CURRENTLY REGISTERED IN THE STATES OF ARIZONA AND NEVADA, DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF FUEL QUALITY AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS, THE FUEL PUMP MAY, IN CERTAIN CASES, EXPERIENCE A REDUCED FUNCTIONALITY. THE MOST COMMON SYMPTOMS WOULD BE FUEL ODOR.

2001 Volvo S60 Reviews

This car now has 144k on it. This is what anyone buying a used one absolutely needs to know. 1) If the timing belt has not been changed at the recommended 105k miles it will be a $500-$600 repair.

From mile 0 to mile 178,000 my 2.3 liter T5 has been one of the best cars I've ever owned. It has great acceleration when needed, but gets almost 30 mpg on the highway. The only bad experience was when the Ford-inspired throttle body had to be replaced in year 3. I sent it off to college with my daughter this year and bought a new 2012 S60RT6 AWD... after a few months I'm not convinced I hav...
