Buy this car! I bought my S80 T6
brand new back in 1999. I drive a lot
and I'm less than 1000 miles from the
100,000 mile mark. All I can say is
this car is incredible. In the
100,000 miles, I've had one minor
repair covered by warranty. This has
been better than any other car I've
owned. The car is still tight without
any annoying squeeks or rattles. I'm
not acustomed to keeping a car this
long but I'm not parting with my T6.
I can't find the words to express how
comfortable the seats are on long
trips. The power and performance is
mind blowing with the twin turbo. Not
a single complaint with this one.
This car can really get up and go.
The twin turbo makes this car quick,
and I mean quick! Reliability is
great. Trouble free model - a good
car to own!
Stop selling these cars to so many
complainers. Sounds like many people
here like to complain about every
little thing rather than enjoy this
machine. I've talked to other owners
and noboby's had problems (other than
normal). Is this the complaining room?
I've read some reviews here from
people complaining. I can't
understand it! I drive a lot and I
now have about 78,000 miles on my T6.
If I remember correctly I only had a
recall done way back after I bought
it. I've done regular maintenance
(very low cost) but I just
don't remember having any repairs
performed. I can't speak for anyone
else, but I would have to say this car
is extremely reliable. The only
complaint I can find (and really not
that bad) is the range on the
transmitters. They're really not too
bad but I owned a Lexus and it had a
little better range. Overall, in the
$50,000 range there's no other car
even close. Very Satisfied!
The seats are just fantastic,
especially on long trips. The car is
so quick too. Very good reliability.
Just a good pick!
Beautiful inside and out and great
highway power but has PLENTY of
quirks. Worst of which is the front
wheel drive/traction control.
When you try to accelerate on anything
but perfect pavement and in a straight
line, it kicks in VERY abruptly.
Transmission gets confused, clunks on
AC controls are more confusing than
ever. How hard is it to design this?
Ditto for the Windows.
Bought "certified" from the dealer.
Paid a premium for this but feel I need
it with the complexities of the
turbo/transmission. Hope it is as
reliable as my old 740 Turbo which I
had for 10 years trouble free.
Interior design and size
More open trunk. Easier AC controls.
Rear wheel drive!
Less traction control/torque steer
Better city gas mileage (I get 14 MPG
I've had my '99 S80 T6 now for over
four years. Aside from regular
maintenance and a recall performed at
no charge, I've done nothing but drive
this car. Maintenance has been
relatively inexpensive as I expected
it to be more. I know Volvo released a
computer download to correct all
issues on these cars. I had it done to
my car at no charge shortly after I
bought it. My dealer said after they
do that, they're aren't too many cars
that can touch the S80 for it's great
reliability. I have absolutely no
complaints at all. The '99 S80 is
great! Super comfortable and
power that can't be touched by any
other luxury car out there.
Recommended very highly!
I so looked forward to owning a
Volvo. I found what I thought to be a
great deal on their flagship. The
deal and the car are crap. I will
never purchase from Akin or another
Volvo. I have spent over $4.0 after I
purchased. I now have so much
invested I can't sell. I am just
waiting for the $7.0 transmission to
Turbo, heated seats, memory seats, and
computer info provided.
For $48.0 new, Volvo should ensure
their product is the best. For a
flagship this is the worst. If their
are complications with the product
then fix it and make the consumer
