#3065 of 3074 Speed sensitive steering
Apr 24, 2013 (1:46 pm)
Hi All, I'm a newbee, so please be polite
I got my 2013 S60 just a few days ago, it has many features including "Speed sensitive steering",
the thing is I notice no difference between steering settings low -> mid -> high.
How is it supposed to work?, I thought that the "High" should be the higher support to the steering which makes it softer than other settings.
Could you tell me how this normally works, what difference I should see between settings so I can be sure it has no problem,

The designations low, medium, and high refer to steering effort, resistance, or weighting, not support. I found substantial noticeable differences among the three settings. You should make certain that you are actually selecting the desired setting using the thumbwheel (scroll to the setting by rolling the thumbwheel, then push the thumbwheel firmly to select) before exiting the menu.

Or set it with the "My Car" settings in the dashboard screen. Low definitely means low effort. If you set it on high, you will use more effort to steer.

Does anyone know how much below invoice Volvo employee pricing is? I'm intrigued by Volvo offering employee pricing thru Costco, plus the $500 cash card Costo throws in for leasing/buying thru this program. I'm lookiong at an S60. Thanks.

Volvo employee pricing = invoice, less any current incentives.

I am also interested in this costco program with volvo. Does it work with leasing it as well?
Also, as we may be starting our family in the next year or two, how is this car with car seats?

I have a 2013 S60 T5. A great car but the back seat is tight. Not a factor for me as it's just my wife and me. You'll want to look at that real closely before you make your decision.

It is tight, but comfortable. Try it. The back seat certainly isn't noticeably tighter than similar sized cars (Buick Verano, BMW 3, Lexus IS). If you are tall and want to ride back there a lot, then look elsewhere.

I don't see myself ever riding in the back seat. None in my family are that tall, so the leg room shouldn't be a huge concern.
Its more about fitting 1 or 2 car seats in there and needed accessories for children.

We just ordered our S60. We installed the car seatsh into a demo model before ordering. The car seats for my 18 month old and 5 year old fit just fine. I bet it's a little tighter when the car seats are rear facing, but you can put it in the middle which helps.
I like a lot of leg room when I'm driving, so we found rear facing baby seats were tight in our Acura TLS and MDX as well.
