A lot of hype
By judy spiegel on
2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan
Had problems from Day 1. My first S80
T6 had to be shipped back to Sweden for
diagnosis. On the replacement,the
sight lines are so bad that these are
dangerous; there is not a blind "spot,"
there is a right blind side.
Transmission doesn't always shift
properly; it sometimes reverses when it
says "drive," parks when it
says "reverse," etc. And the car
shakes when one goes from 0 to 5 on a
dry surface! (Like pulling out of a
red light.) The doors do not close
tightly. All in all, a lot of hype.
Fix the sight lines. Fix the gear
selector. Figure out why the damn car
is shaking on a dry surface. Make the
doors stay closed. Put in a clock that
is easy to adjust.
