Review

I bought it used in '04 and have regretted it ever since. I'm looking at Japanese cars to finally replace this clunker. I got it with 41K miles and 10K miles later I had to replace a number of things. The biggie was rebuilt transmission at 73K miles; since then it drives like a truck with it's 13 mpg. The night mirror chemical dissipated soon thereafter, and now the car lurches to the left whenever I brake. Volvo mechanics have been unable to solve this one.

Need to Build Them Like They Used To!

Gone are the days when a Volvo lasted for 200,000 miles. I am on my third Volvo and can't say I would buy another one. The last one was a 1995 850 that I drove for 60,000 miles before the transmission went on it. I traded it for a 2001 S80, which I have loved, but now the transmission needs to replaced at 72,000 miles. $5,500 is a bit much to sink into a car with a blue book value slightly higher than that. These cars are great if you can afford to keep sinking money into them.

Review

This car is a very well built veicle and is very comfortable on long trips. The ride is very smooth and with twin turbos, the accelerator can quickly and smoothly bring you to the attention of the traffic police without the driver realizing it. Tire noise is noticeable with the high performance radial tires. Standard sound system is very good with great sound quality.

Picked up our S80 in Feb. What a Valentines Day present! Dealership was wonderful with everything. Just had a six hour road trip with no compliants. Plenty of trunk space. Controls were easy to find and use, great nav. system. You do have to read the manual to learn all offerings, but I drove it off the lot and could understand the basics. Acceleration is fantastic, both off the line and at highway speeds. Minimal noise from wind and road even considering Z-rated performance tires. Everyone says beautiful car...it's a VOLVO?! Safety is unmatched with any other car. Great confidence when driving with wife and 5 month old daughter.
