Love the car - hate to fix!

Vehicle

1999 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan

Review

Driving this car is bittersweet. It has all the comforts of home with all the bells and whistles and the safety that Volvo is known for. The car looks good, has a smooth ride, it turns heads, and even has a kickin' audio system, but my wallet take a punch to the face when I sit in the waiting room of the service department. Among the thousands I spent in repairs, last week I spent $150 for a simple battery (without the labor cost). When I disconnected the old battery to purchase a new one, my airbag sensor got disabled, and that cost me $85 just to have the technician connect a computer in the dash and press a button to reset it. I had to get rid of it but I do miss it.

Best Features

Audio controls in the steering wheel and that big sunroof!

Worst Features

Either make it less expensive to fix, or make it more dependable.
