I started out loving the car. Right after it went out of warranty I had a number of small issues. My dealer recommended that I contact the regional manager and I complained to him that all my miles were expressway and I was unhappy that these problems occurred. He authorized the dealership to take care of these and I was not charged. Thanks Volvo customer service! I have had very few problems since then and currently have 238,500 miles on the car. I have driven and would buy a new 2007 Volvo S80, but I do not like the new center console and the way my knee hits up against it is uncomfortable. As much time as I spend in the car comfort is important so I am now looking at a competitor's car.
I like the comfort and pick up of the turbo.
For 2007 Volvo S80 - I don't think the designers must have spent a lot of time sitting in the car. If they would have, they would have noticed that the center console does not allow the driver to relax his/her right leg in a comfortable position for a long period of time.
