2000 Volvo S80 Sedan T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

On the plus side, very comfortable vehicle inside, also great looks. Unfortunately, many trips to service dept after only 24k miles for suspension/electrical/ problems mostly. Unacceptable for a 40k+ automobile. I think I'll go back to Japanese cars next.


Favorite Features

Seats VERY comfortable for a 6'5" driver. Acceleration good. Sound system very nice. Very sharp exterior styling.


Suggested Improvements

Redesign of suspension/ electrical systems. Need to provide MUCH better value given competition in price range.

Review

The S-80 is avery comfortable and good looking veh, but it has been the most unreliable veh I have ever owned, in the last 3 years the car has been in the shop over a dozen times, and for weeks at a time. The head gasket blew at 4000 miles, the electrical system, a nightmare, the transmission does not function properly. All of this Volvo acknowleges, but they will not step up to the plate and get me out of a lease that only has 3 months remaining. My car is currently in the shop and has been for the past week and a half. I will never buy another Volvo!


Suggested Improvements

Customer service, and quality control

Review

Had Honda's my whole life and wanted to move up. Mistake. Great car if you can get it cheap and know a Volvo technician. Currently at 68K miles. Transmission replaced at 52K. Battery died during that time. Needs new rotors ($$$) each 40K miles. Replaced throttle control unit and sensor. Countless new lightbulbs. Replaced ignition antenna. Volvo Service at Dealerships are great......they have to be! READ EDMUNDS MAINTENANCE GUIDE for TSBs!!! Next car will be a Honda.


Favorite Features

Interior Comforts.


Suggested Improvements

100K bumper to bumper warranty!

Review

When Consumer Reports notes that this is one of the poorest used car buys, listen to them. It is an incredible car in its interior quality, power, and road handling; but the fun stops there. I have spent so much time in the dealership with the front suspension, climate control, engine and transmission issues that it is on the rack more than the road. The vehicle reliability is incredibly disappointing and you should really think twice before buying. Between the poor dealer service and the dismal quality and reliability, I will never buy another Volvo. For the same money elsewhere you can get so much more.


Favorite Features

Outstanding power and great road handling.


Suggested Improvements

Suspension, control software and electronics are very, very substandard.

We have really been thrilled with our S80. It is fun drive, looks sharp, is incredibly safe, and has been very reliable.

Review

Our family has been buying Volvos since 1980, and this is by far the best one yet. Fast, comfortable, and great sound system.


Favorite Features

Great ride, the seats are second to none. My father has an SL500 (115k car) seats aren't as comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

Move to the 350hp range.

Review

It's a shame that a top notch mfrg. like Volvo would let the engine quality slip to non existent.Yes, it's safe and comfortable, but high maintenance-- unbelieveable. In one year, I spent over $4k in tires (only 2 types fit the rims) and constant repairs i.e. every 10k youhave to clean the electronic throttle (I did twice in a yr) or it will surge. Never again!


Favorite Features

Bodystyle and interior good looks


Suggested Improvements

The car is beautiful, but let the Japanese redo the entire engine. Needs more power and alot less maintenance!

Review

Experience has been excellent to superior with very few problems of any kind. The car has superior safety features, is a comfortable ride and extremely reliable over 30,000 miles to date. It averages 2o miles in the city and 27 on the highway. The sound systym is excellent and as are the handling characteristics. No realignment has been necessary, the tire wear factor has been excellent with an est. additinal 10k miles to go. Brake lining wear to match.


Favorite Features

Reliability, Safety, Handling and Gas Mileage. Body integrity excellent with no squeeks, rattles, etc.


Suggested Improvements

For the money, virtually none.
