Some flaws, and not again
By FirstS80T6 on
2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan
I have several complaints about this
car. First of all, the 17-inch
upgraded tires are not suitable for
any winter driving in the Northeast.
I learned this the hard way. Second,
driving with the windows and sunroof
open will cause the rear view mirror
to shake very violently at 60mph.
Third, maintenance and autobody works
are extremely expensive. It costs me
over $700 to replace a cracked
headlight! Routine maintenance
services were over $200 each visit.
Fourth, the suspension and the
steering are too soft for my liking.
Last, the visibility is very poor.
For the amount of money, it is not
worth it, and I will definitely not
buy the S80 again.
Upgraded stereo system with Dolby
surround sound sounds great. AC and
Heat work very fast. Actually, the
HVAC is probably the best feature of
Steering could be more accurate.
Suspension could be firmer, like the
Maxima for example. The brake feel
could use some improvement as well.
It is very hard to moderate.
