by Edwin, +256-704515368

The Volvo S60 is a compact executive car manufactured and marketed by Volvo since 2000 and is now in its second generation.

Buying a foreign used Volvo S60 from a local Ugandan car bond


There are a number of car bonds in Uganda specifically Kampala from which you can buy your Valve S60. However, you have to do good research in order to find a reputable car bond or dealer who will be able to provide you with the car that will meet your needs and above all genuinely imported into Uganda.

You need to look out for prices and discounts. Local car bonds may not charge the same prices for the same car. Prices of the Valve S60 may be affected by mileage of the Valve S60, condition of the car, model, and year of manufacture.

It is also very important to note that there have been numerous cases of car thefts especially from Europe in particularly from Britain. These cars have been traced up to Uganda and the buyers have fallen in trouble for buying stolen cars.

Importing a foreign Used Volvo S60 from Japan or other parts of the world


In case if you prefer to import your own Valve S60 from say Japan or from Europe, things change a bit. First it would require you to find a trusted dealer or seller in that regard, determine your specific car features and requirements, expected budget you plan to spend on buying the car and well calculated taxes to be paid to the tax authorities in order to clear Volvo S40.

It is also very important to examine the car upon arrival to check and see if all the car components are included in the car as it was shown to you before buying it. You need to watch out for car spare tires, car jack, radio, navigation systems, window power buttons among other things.

The taxes charged by the Uganda Revenue Authority include Import Duty, Value added (VAT), Withholding Tax, Environmental Levy, Infrastructure Levy, and Registration Fees basing on the CIF of the Valve S60 from Japan.

On arrival to Kampala, Uganda, you will have to clear the taxes at The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), apply and pay for a number plate and then the third party license. You will also notice the some of these charges or fees differ from other vehicles.

General Volvo S60 reviews for Uganda


There’s no doubt that the Volvo S60 was a breath of fresh air when launched, thanks to its sleek lines and bold detailing. Its three-box shape has been smoothed off to give it a coupe-like profile, with steeply raked front and rear windscreens, small side windows and a raised rear end. Boomerang-esque rear lights and square-edge exhaust pipes add to the charm.

While the cabin of the Volvo S60 is a pleasant place to be thanks to its comfortable seats and airy driving environment, some of the switchgear on the dash is confusingly laid out.

While the cabin of the Volvo S60 is a pleasant place to be thanks to its comfortable seats and airy driving environment, some of the switchgear on the dash is confusingly laid out.

Sadly, despite its pleasant atmosphere, the Volvo S60 isn't the most practical car in the compact executive class - passengers in the back get slightly less space than in an Audi A4 or BMW 3 Series, and headroom could be a problem for taller passengers.

Availability of Volvo S60 Spares parts in Uganda


Fortunately there are a number of Volvo funs in Uganda and some have gone a step ahead and imported some of the spare parts for the Volvos. Just in case the spare part you want is not available, these importers are very much willing to import it for you at a reasonable price.

Our Conclusion


The Volvo S60 is a good choice for compact exec buyers seeking value, but it’s bettered by newer rivals. However, the Volvo S60 is Spacious, has a comfortable cabin, responsive drive and hi-tech safety options all put together for you.
