Volvo S-80 Nice Looking but a Letdown
By dannyroche on
2003 Volvo S80 T6 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)
(2) transmission services
link bushing replacement
and one front strut changed before 50K
second strut at 60K
door lock ($220) at 70K
heated mirror ($200) at 73K
Care is nice to drive and nice looking.
Car has great safety features.
Good performance with the T-6, a tad
too much torque due to FWD.
Too Bad Volvo has not figured out that
there is one thing ahead of safety.
THE CAR MUST BE RELIABLE......
Heated seats are excellent.
Nice soft leather.
Moon roof very large.
Spend some more time in design and
qualification. Excessive reliability
problems for a car in this class.
Try a recall once in a while instead of
making your customers find them one at
a time. The dealerships know this car
has issues, and never offer to cover.
