Review of the 2002 Volvo S80

  • With its distinctive styling, luxurious interior and excellent reputation for safety, the often overlooked S80 deserves consideration.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Loaded with outstanding safety innovations and features, impressively fast in T6 trim, spacious backseat.

  • Cons

    Confusing interior control markings, suspension and steering systems that can't keep up with the T6's engine performance level.

  • What's New for 2002

    As a follow-up to the S80 T6 Executive, Volvo has released the T6 Elite, which combines the increased rear legroom, wider rear door openings and interior luxuries of the Executive with the convenience of a rear bench seat, thus providing room for five. Additionally, all S80s will get Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA), enhanced traction control performance and improved throttle management, resulting in quicker response in everyday driving situations. Other improvements include color-coordinated exterior trim (rather than the usual black moldings), an emergency release trunk release handle and the availability of a DVD-based navigation system and xenon headlamps. New exterior color choices are Pearl White and Black Sapphire. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of its first car, Volvo heightens comfort levels for rear-seat passengers with a special trim level. The car's wheelbase is the same, but special door hinges allow for a wider door opening in order to access a roomier rear seat. Executive leather upholstery and a sunshade are standard. A rear-seat entertainment system with dual 7-inch screens can play DVD, television or a video game. Another option is a refrigerator in the rear center armrest. The Special Edition S80 can be distinguished by the body-colored bumpers and moldings.

Not too shabby

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S80 T6 Executive 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

It's comfortable, safe, plenty of cupholders, plenty of leg room, gorgeous interior. You can't really ask for much more as far as the interior goes. I love the heated seats in the winter. It handles nicely, and its pretty fast for what it is. I'm not sure if I'd go as far to say that its the best car I've ever owned, but it is a beauty. I've had some problems with the tail lights, when I shut the trunk they'll go out and I have to whack them a bit to get them back on. The winshield wiper fluid got disconnected, not sure why. I poured fluid in the resevoir and it just poured out onto the driveway. Car won't start if the gas gauge needle hits the red area.

Volvo s80 t-6 executive

Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S80 T6 Executive 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

The top of the line Volvo S80 T6 Executive is the pinnacle of volvo style, performance, luxary and safety. The car has more than adeqate accelation and pickup. The engine is silky smooth and matted to a smooth 4 speed Geartronic transmission, in standard automatic mode the transmission shifts smoothly, though in the manual mode there is a slight delay between upshifts and downshifts. The Rear areas border on limosine like and provide execeptional leg room (A passenger who is 6' tall is comfortable behind a tall driver.), the car overall is the best car yet that volvo has produced.




Awesome car!

Vehicle: 2002 Volvo S80 T6 Executive 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

This car has a better ride, maintenance, than my other luxury cars. I own same year Lexus GS430 and a 2000 Mercedes S600 and this Volvo tops them both.
