I have had a love/hate relationship with my S80. Beautiful styling, best seats in the business, great 8 speaker stereo. LOUSY reliability, Paid $15,000.00 at 5yrs old and 37,000 miles. Noisy front end, repairing strut mounts twice, engine mount, ball joints, rear shocks, broken fuel line in the tank, ABS speed sensor failure, repairs too numerous to remember. Cost of ownership is way too high with every repair costing $1000.00 or more each time. Volvo has proprietary software diagnostics which requires you take it to a Volvo dealer every or most every time. It's simply too unreliable and costly to own. Too bad, it is a top of the line car. SHAME on Volvo for the poor engineering.
Style, best seats of any car, stereo, safety.
Electronics, poor cup holder design, front end hardware not stout enough, things wear out too quickly. ALL dealer repairs are very costly.
