2009 Volvo S60 Problems
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light and/or other dash warning lights may illuminate due to a failed ABS Control Module. Replacement of the failed module is generally required to correct this concern.
The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.
The upper engine mount may wear prematurely. Symptoms may include a harsh feeling when the transmission is shifting and roughness when the engine is idling. Worn engine mounts should be replaced as necessary.
Engine oil leaks from the PCV housing are common.

2009 Volvo S60 Reviews
Bought the car in 2009 and simply love it. It is agile in traffic with the power to accelerate when I need to. I test drove BMWs 3 series and bought the Volvo for the refined ride. Sportier rides are great sometimes when you need to cut loose but when I am going to work in the mornings I like a little comfort. the S60 delivers on all counts.
