Very Happy S80 T6 Camper

2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan
Three years & 70,000 miles later, I still look forward to driving it to work (70mi RT) as much as on road trips! Turbo is much more responsive than basic engine (drove both before buying). Passengers are always surprised at excellent road ride, extremely comfortable seats, and excellent interior layout. Acceleration is phenominal from a dead start or passing on 2-lane roads. HU-801 Dolby Pro Logic Surround Sound system - WOW! Sound of CDs is concert- hall quality. No cassette player; you won't miss it. Read all the reviews at this site - read between the lines. Look for the real problem; many times it is the repair facility/dealer or someone who hasn't read the owner's manual.
- HU-801 Sound System is OUTSTANDING!!! Note the standard S80 system (HU-601) is referred to as "premium sound" - heard both and 801 is worth searching for. - Battery in truck; saw for 1st time this week when checking air in spare tire. Excellent condition (not a speck of crud & very easy access).
- Sunroof rattles; not air-tight. - Replacing Michelin MXM4 17" tires is expensive; $1000 for 4ea. Great ride & performance! - Requires an extended warranty, but I would get one for any auto loaded w/computers and this costly; $1500 contract paid for itself. -Get recall list & fix all at once.
