#198 of 212 New Lease - 2012 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design
Jul 08, 2012 (11:23 am)
Here is some info regarding the 2012 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design that I leased yesterday.
2012 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design
-Electric Silver Metallic Paint
-Blind Spot Info System
-Personal Car Communicator (key)
CAP cost: $43,900
U.S. Bank Credit after CAP cost: $1800
L.E.V.: 49% ($23,850.75)
Special lease offer through US Bank that pays $450 a month as a credit for the first four months so the cost averages out to $600 a month including tax. And, the dealer is tinting the windows and they threw in all weather mats.
The car is so beautiful and fast! I think it was an awesome deal for an almost $50k car. What do you guys think? Good deal?

Didn't see an S60 forum that this fits in so feel free to move it if required:
2012 S60 T5 with 1500 miles driven: First "long" highway trip notes - seats continue to be GREAT, very comfortable during a 500 mile highway trip with only a couple of pit stops along the way. Car handles well in dry and wet conditions. 29.8 mpg (hand calculated - computer showed 31.2) while cruising at 70-75 mph with 4 passengers and bags. MPG seems to drop off a little while cruising at 75+ vs 65-70

....and it's nice to be in a car that is a bit unique; there are not millions of these on the road, like the endless 3 series I see. The S60 gets so many "looks" and compliments from people on the street, it's amazing. MPG so far has been ok, not great, but thrilled to be using regular gas after putting the expensive stuff in my Lexus for the last dozen years. The handling is great, the turbo is fun, and the sporty styling belies its practicality and safety. Loving this new car!

I'm taking delivery of an S60 T5 next month. The fact I don't see many here in Western PA was a factor in my decision. Seems like every other car I see is a 3 series or an ES 350 (both great cars). Do you have a T5? What MPH are you getting? Thanks!

You mean what MPG I'm getting! (MPH is quite high, I must admit.....the turbo asks to be driven fast!!!) I basically do a lot of city driving with a bit of highway mixed in.... so far, after abouy 1500 miles, it's about 23 miles per gallon, on regular (YAY!!). Am taking a good road trip next month and I'm waiting to see how much better it will do on pure highways. THere is an 'information' thing that you can scroll through on the steering wheel, which posts various pieces of info on the dash....one of the items is "how many miles to empty". every time I fill up, it says 500. but that never happens, and this gauge is annoyingly inaccurate enough that I've turned it off.
I was a Lexus devotee for 12 years, and really wanted to buy another one, but found that the w ES was going to be an even more expensive "camry".... and to load it up with all the bells and whistles puts it almost at 50k, which is crazy. The new ES comes out in the fall and I'm sure it will be even more expensive.
The new 3 series is very nice, I drove it a few times, but I live in an area where FWD is good to have, and did not want to pay the premium for AWD and the associated drop in MPG.
The other car that seemed to be a really good value was the Nissan Maxima. but that car is in a funny middle ground, as a premium-ish car, in a non premium brand. I always preferred it's styling to that of the infiniti, which seems very dated at this point.
I'm hoping that the Volvo will prove to be a great value for a sporty, fast, safe and fun car. Hope you enjoy your new S60 too!

MPG for me on 3500 miles of mostly highway is 29. In the city it's looking like 23. The miles to empty gauge changed much more wildly than my merc's. It's hard to know when to fill up since it's accurate to the hill and curve. Maybe I'm nuts, but I've been putting in premium--it's only a few bucks more per tank.

I am planning to buy a 2012 s60 t5 base model without any options in DC area, could some one suggest me a reasonable target price? it will be great if you can share your purchase experiences.

Does this price of 32689 include tax? I have been quoted the price of 30600 for 2012 S60 T5 with climate+premium+Metallic paint (no loyalty discount). When including tax etc (6.5% tax), out of door is around 33400. Is this reasonable? I did not ask about 2013 model, any one knows whether 2012 has more discount than 2013?
