Used, 1 prev owner. Within 4 months,
had the following electrical systems
fail at separate times; I had second
opinion for repairs:
Air cond. control unit failure
Antilock brake system unit failure
STS (traction control) unit failure
Exhaust system - faulure
Intermittent light failure
Transmission control unit -- failure
When the STS and ABS control units
fail, they cause the transmission
control unit to fail.
Spoke with other S80 customers who had
similar experiences. 1999-2002 models
are known for having faulty / poorly
design electrical systems.
Make sure your warranty covers
ELECTRICAL AND has rental car
coverage. You'll need it.
