    I am considering buying 2002 S60 AWD...Someone who has one recently told me
    that it has terrible blind spots...Has anyone else found this to be
    true?..Thanks

  2. I've not noticed that problem myself. My only critism is that the turning
    circle is not very good and you need to do a lot of work to park in a tight
    space. Depends on your driving position and personal opinion, I'd go for a
    test drive.

    I've been living with an '02 S60AWD since January of '02.

    The "A" pillars are a bit on the heavy side, which has been mentioned in
    magazine road tests, etc. I've never really though of it in practical
    daily use. Vision to the rear, as in parking, isn't great, but this is
    the price for the search that makers are conducting these days for
    carrying capacity and aerodynamics.

    This less-than-super rear vision is a problem with cars of like style
    and price. We looked at the BMW 330xi, but found it too uncomfortable
    (seats don't compare to Volvo) and generally restrictive. They did have
    one clever trick, in that the outside rear view mirror on the right side
    tilts down when Reverse is selected - not as much of a help as one might
    hope.

    So, as suggested, take a ride and see what you think. The car's too
    nice for a small problem to decide unless you are continually parallel
    parking all day - but then I do not know what else you might choose.
