Is it the dealer or is it the car???
By Hokie in NC on
2001 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl 4A)
I bought my S80 in 2001. The stereo
leaves something to be desired. It
drove great for the first 20K miles,
but then the problems started. I have
it in the shop AT LEAST once a month
for repairs (mainly light bulbs). The
scheduled maintenance is ridiculously
expensive – almost $300 for an oil
change!!! I have had a ton of problems
with the Dealer in New Bern, North
Carolina – ranging from rude treatment
to incompetent repairs. To make
matters worse, the car is starting
to “loosen up.” At 45K miles, the car
feels as old as my 200K mile Toyota I
traded in for it! Don’t even think
about this car unless you have extra
money to burn!
It is a good looking car that will fit
in well at the club.
