Great, but buy the extended warranty

ReviewThe S-80 Turbo is a fantasticly designed car. Most of the problems have been peripheral electrical glitches, i.e. the door lock control module, short range remote, etc. Only one significant failure: New transmission under warranty! Volvo was great and replaced it immediately plus a rental car, but no trannie should fail at 40k. I'll wait and see, as I just purchased the Volvo extended factory warranty and plan to keep the car to at least 7 years and 100k+. It's worth it.
Best FeaturesThe twin turbos are nice, but the car is a dream both in town and on the road. It eats asphalt and the driver never tires. It handles without any of the mush and sway that is normal for a big car. Not as tight as a BMW 535, but it definitely holds its own.
Worst FeaturesFrom the other comments in reviews and my experience, definite improvement in the electrical gadget manufacturing quality controls. I'm writing off the transmission problem as a fluke.
