1999 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought a white 1999 S80 2.9 Executive (surround sound stereo with 4-disk CD changer and performance suspension and handling) with exactly 90,000 miles on it in September, 2008 for $5,500. I test drove it and it ran great! Two weeks after I bought it, the "attention" triangle lit up red and the status screen said "Transmission service urgent." I had the transmission rebuilt which was luckily covered under the warranty I purchased for from the dealer. After the rebuild, the warning came up again. I took it to my local Volvo dealership and they found out that the Mass Air Flow Sensor was bad and it has been a great car ever since! Easy $175 fix because of labor.

Favorite Features

awesome surround sound 4-disk CD changer stability and traction control and the Weather button (locks second wheel in for better traction) awesome safety features comfort power LOVE THE ALARM SOUND (sounds like European police siren)

Suggested Improvements

Improve the lifespan of the power windows. Fix back door lock problems.
