Worst Vehicle Every Purchased
By Brian on
2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan
Probably in the top 5 worst cars every made. 7yr old car, with 89k mi. Here is the short list: Warning lights constantly going off. Engine constatnly surges, even after multiple trips to dealer, multi software downloads and new throttle installed. Transmission is slipping. ABS system failed. Already replaced front bushings, struts, strut mounts and bearings. After 2nd set of new rotors, still vibrates like crazy when stopping. Cloth interior drooping, seats cracking. Sunroof brackets coming off. Headlight assembly is bad. AC fan vibrates and makes noise. Incredible depreciation rate! Owe $6500 on car and will have to put $3 to $5k to fix tranmission. Volvo won't help! Warranty ended in '06.
Looks great! Supposed to be safe? Was supposed to be reliable also. I hope I never have to find out. Frame is built like a tank.
Redesign Electrical/Computer System, Transmission, Brake system, and Engine. Redesign Cloth Enterior and leather seats to last.
