Overall, how satisfied are you with your 2019+ V60 or V60 Cross Country?

Yes, very much. It is very comfortable, luxurious, and a hoot to drive. I've yet to see another V60 in my area, so it has a unique look to it too

We are loving ours. I was a bit hesitant at first because the price was so much higher than our allroad. But I'm really enjoying the car so far. 1week / 350 miles, added Polestar and ordered/waiting for new wheels. Its currently getting ceramic coated and I'm trying to order all the mats, dog guard and roof rack stuff.
I'm also hoping someone will make some off road stuff for it.
But overall, it's great so far. Did great in the snow and the B&W sound is awesome!!
I wish that people that vote especially with partially or not satisfied would state the reason as that would help others to decide if the car is right for them.
As if you simply state not satisfied because your 8 feet tall and is not comfortable then it should be really disregarded to the overall score.

I am very satisfied, the only things that stopped me from being completely satisfied are the poor throw for the 2019 LED headlights and wheel vibration.
I LOVE my denim 2019 v60 T6 Polestar. More than the my previous 2 XC70's (2005 and 2012). And I thought those were great but this one is the best yet. Only problem is the color. Looks great but I can't stop waxing it.
I am very satisfied! First time Volvo owner, this is the most expensive car I have ever purchased/leased so it better be nice, but satisfaction has gone even beyond just the level of money spent, for me.
WOOPS I see it's V60 only... no idea how to remove my response ha
2020 V60 CC (US specification), 5000 miles so far.

I saw black navigation screen a few times during the OSD (1200 mile driven). When I dropped off the car at Goteborg, factory delivery staff member told me that's due to difference of European/US map. I only saw black screen once after I got car back in US. I still have trouble with voice command and GPS if I don't know the exact address to enter.
I don't like the fact that to order ventilation/massage seat package I have to order another package (Pro package?) which I don't need.
I have a MY2020 V60 Polestar (T8), 500 miles. The drive train has been great and being able to plug in at night allows my short commute to be fully electric. Only thing stopping me from a 100% is that the Volvo navigation system is terrible to the point where it isn't usable. It can't find most addresses and when it does it takes 5+ minutes to figure out. I'm hoping they'll make a software upgrade to the full Android OS system in the future.
2400 miles so far on my 2020 V60 CC. Very satisfied. Comfortable, stable, handles well. The paint is very very smooth. The best paint among the cars that I have had so far.
It is a nice car with some minor issue. I really love it though.
Cracking noise in the rear in the morning.
Slow shift in Comfort Mode. It feels like I am driving with a manual stick slowly. My head actually moves forward when the trans shifts up, lol
Slight wobbling on the rear wheels when I take off easy. It is now less noticeable compared to when the car was brand new.
Road noise - yeah I know it is a wagon.

Most of the items are however similar to all new cars not just Volvo. The EPA required the auto start stop to be enable for example after a power cycle.
Others are very very did I say vary specific to you and I wonder if there is any other car (new) that would meet your demands/ requirements.
It’s all personal taste and the reason why if we want to take the list/rating objective we need to remove as you voting the car down would not be fair to the car or the brand.
Unfortunately American market is very “show” and not “go” that removes a lot of the options and makes the others required on a “premium” car, for example the glass roof.
People associate this to a “premium “ car when the reality is completely opposite.
Thanks for sharing this detailed list.

2019 V70 T6 inscription Polestar very satisfied with it! It gets knocked down a bit for warped rotors, strange white substance in washer fluid, bad temperature sensor, corroded pins in passenger door connector, issues with it unlocking itself at it’ s will. All resolved now and love this little rocket.
Yes, I remember now that others have said that the auto-start/stop can be disabled again in Volvos for MY2020 (and maybe even MY2019?), but it was not the case in MY2018 Volvos.
Are you saying that Individual mode can now be put into memory, so that the car starts up in Individual mode? Again, that was not the case in MY2018 Volvos.
I find the drive-mode roller button to be poorly placed -- I have to take my eyes way off the road to operate it (I suppose you can learn where it is and use it by feel) -- but even worse to me is that I find it hard to zero in on a drive mode to change to: it seems to slip half the time onto an adjacent drive mode when I push the button, so that I end up in a drive mode that I didn't intend. All drive-mode buttons/dials should be on the steering wheel.
I find that auto mode for climate is not always what I want, and in particular, I want to change fan speeds a fair amount to get the car warmer or cooler more quickly.
I'm also a big map user, and I find the Sensus maps really crappy; can't wait for Google to get their product into Volvos this coming year -- worth waiting an extra year for me. I also tried using the voice control on numerous "lot cars" at Volvo dealerships and found it to be very poor, especially for navigation.
Yes, my complaints are personal preference. But the auto-start/stop, Sensus, and climate-controls-in-touchscreen are very widespread complaints, including by auto-review journalists as well as by many Volvo owners. This is why auto-start/stop can now again be permanently disabled, and why Sensus is in its last year of production (and I pity those Volvo owners with Sensus in their vehicles when they won't be supported in a couple of years, with the Google OS coming in across all Volvos), and it's why companies like Mazda are refraining from putting touchscreens in their cars even in 2020. Touchscreens should be banned in all cars as unsafe, and shame on Volvo for forcing drivers to unsafely move their eyes off the road for way too much.
I partially agree about the touch screen, however given you pressing a clear large square to interact with your phone or trying to find a phone unlock it then find the tiny icon to click is more dangerous.
Don’t get me wrong phones and internet and other things like Twitter has no place in the car unfortunately as people do what people do this looks like a step in the right direction as a company that doesn’t support CarPlay or android auto with touch will simply not sell any cars in 2020.

People just need to get used to it and operate safely. Just like they need to learn where to reach for buttons in a new car as well.

The one thing we are not discussing is how the car DRIVES, which is why I got it to begin with. For me it just right between comfort and sport. I’ve had a lot of cars in my 52 years if driving, sport cars, sport sedans hard top convertibles and on and on. This car is a pleasure to drive for me. I think it will do just fine in the NE climate. I love the looks of it as well. The lighting both interior and exterior are terrific. Well thought out ,engineered car in almost every way. I’m sure I’m forgetting some things, but so far very happy.
I have almost 2000 miles on my '20 V60 cc. I would have to say that I am between somewhat satisfied and very satisfied. With less than 50 miles on the ODO, the OX sensor had to be replaced. The car is very comfortable to drive on long distances. I wish there was more feedback on the steering. I have the steering feel set to the heaviest "weight" but it still feels disconnected. I came from a BMW 420i and yes the driving engagement is different, but still...
I also do notice a bit of understeer in the car, which is due to the FWD bias. I am considering adding a stiffer rear sway bar to offset the understeer and because I am considering towing a teardrop trailer. I think that would add more stability to the car.
The last thing I am underwhelmed about is the Sensus navigation and audio feedback. It feels very dated. I rely almost exclusively on Apple CarPlay when I need navigation. Siri is way ahead of Sensus and that is saying a lot considering it's Siri.
Anyway, I am happy with the car. It looks great, does a lot of things well and time will tell how reliable it will be.

T5 FWD V60 2000 miles. Love the car so far, goes through snow really well with snow tires. Only complaint is some brake squeal in the morning coming down the driveway. Love the B&W stereo and has more power than I need, averaging about 29.3 mpg so far (optimistic car number, I didn't hand calc this). I almost wish they just made a N/A version around 180-200 HP that got better gas mileage. I'm not out to race anyone, I just want some quiet comfort and a nice stereo
