Purchased car with 33000 miles and have been beset with any number of very expensive problems. The most expensive problem was replacing the fuel pump at 43000 miles at a cost of $1000 dollars and suffering an overwhelming smell of gasoline for a month afterward. Now there is a check engine warning that shows a code of failure of fuel system. The estimate on replacing the sensor is in the neighborhood of $800 dollars. The suspension system needs realignment every two thousand miles or so. Am on the third set of tires. Continually replacing headlight bulbs and other bulbs. I am 82 years old and have drive Volvos for years and I do not misuse a car. Am bitterly disappointed with this car!
Car is comfortable and gets good mileage. However driving with a continual fear of breakdown is maddening. Volvo should be proud of this rolling laughing stock and its need to be repaired.
Jack the horn button up and drive a Japanese car in under it!
This is an excellent car. It's fun to drive, and it gets good gas mileage. I consistently get 430 miles to the tank. The only problem I have is that the rear passenger speaker produces static. Other than that, the car accelerates well, takes turns well, hugs the road and has plenty of amenities. The trunk is very large. The hinges fold into the side and not into the well of the trunk. It gives you more space. That's especially important when you are grocery shopping for a family of 5! Overall, it's a great car.
Interior and exterior design, trunk and accelerator.
The VOlvo S80 is the finest car I have
ever driven. Thle styling was new,
starting with the 2002 model year. Car
is roomy inside and holds 4 to 5
people. Steering, power, acceleration,
placement of instruments etc. is great.
Seating is extremely comfortable and is
posture friendly. Well designed. Thlley
thought of evereything.
Favorite features are the surround
sound premium stereo system,stations
are easly to program. It has the finest
navigation system on the market, and
the only one I know of that has a
remote control unit, easy to use.. Also
the message system is also helpful and
