Review of the 2004 Volvo S80

  • When it comes to ride comfort, feature content and uncompromised safety, the S80 excels, but for those who prefer a little sport in their sedans, the S80 will leave you wishing for more.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Loaded with outstanding safety innovations and features, quick on its feet in T6 trim, spacious backseat, soothing ride.

  • Cons

    Suspension still doesn't feel athletic even with Four-C system, turbo lag can be annoying around town, gets pricey with options.

  • What's New for 2004

    The S80 received a minor refresh this year that includes a modified grille, additional chrome trim and a revised rear fascia for the exterior along with a new gauge cluster and door panels for the interior. Volvo's Four-C adjustable suspension is a new option on all trim levels. All-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive versions of the 2.5T will be added midyear, but neither can be ordered in conjunction with the Four-C suspension. Finally, the T6 Premier replaces the T6 Elite as the top trim level.

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I’ve owned my Volvo S60R for a short time, but I love this car. It’s a blast to drive, a sports car in a family sedans skin.

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Had this car for 30,000 mile. never a problem. Great on ice and snow. Absolutely reliable. Amazing MPG ( 31 on the highway at 75 MPH and 23 in the city)...checked many times. Does everything you would want in a car. Great acceleration (despite what they say)




A near-perfect car

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I never owned a Volvo until I bought this for my wife. It quickly found its way into my hands - a deal I could only swing by agreeing to buy her a new XC70 wagon as a replacement. Neither of us can imagine owning any other brand now. This car is perhaps the most complete vehicle one can own. It has just about everything - unsurpassed safety, good performance, acceptable reliability, room, AWD, the most comfortable seats I've ever experienced, and an understated elegance. I have around 8000 miles now and have had no problems. Like other reviewers, I now look for any excuse to drive. Despite Ford's ownership - this is still a Volvo at heart. I absolutely love it.




I've never hated a car

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I have never hated a car quicker. Within the first 100 km the exterior chrome molding has started to come off. Within 200 km the gas pedal does not function properly, one must depress it a full inch before there is any response. This is most annoying, and the dealer tells us that nothing can be done about it, that its just the way Volvo makes them. For the cost, I am exceptionally disappointed in this car. It now has less than 2000 km on it and we are about to trade it in on an Audi. Remember its really no longer a Volvo, its an expensive Ford.

I have already driven it 10,000 miles and have really enjoyed the experience. The people in the back seat have as great experience as those in the front.

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

This is a remarkable car. Outsatnding MPG on the highway (29 @ 80 miles per hour), above 20 in town...very comfortable (a little bit "spartan", though) easy to drive, cruises very nicely, does everything right....it just does not have the "solid" feeling, nor sporty feeling of a BMW or Mercedez. It always gives you the impression the "power is not going to be there...but it is.
