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.

Great car for low price

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 T6 Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

This is my 3rd Volvo over the years and I would say this is the best so far. Great design in and out. Enough room for 4 adults . Very comfortable ride. I am thinking about brand new Volvo S80 now. I would say this car car is way underpriced as a used car.

Don't buy 2004 volvo s80

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 T6 Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

Ford engineering has obviously ruined Volvo. My wife preferred the Volvo to a Lexus based on exterior style, but now regrets the decision. The car has major electronic failures about every 4- 6 months and required towing to the dealership twice. Also required the "company" to send someone out for figuring out the repair. We got this car for a reliable vehicle to drive on the road for trips, but I would use my 1986 Subaru GL10 or 1993 Toyota T100 4x4 rather than this Volvo. It was painted white, but should have been yellow to match its lemon qualities. Do not buy this junk or you will regret it!

I own 2 Volvo's XC 90 and S80 The S80 is a great car. Lots of power, fun to drive, comfortable after 8 hrs of driving, you don't feel beat up. I am waiting for the V-8 to come out this winter.

The first 7500 miles

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo S80 T6 Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

I choose the S80 because my previous cars have been standard V6 sedans. The S80 is by far the best sedan I have own or driven. Leaving Denver in April, there were 12 inches of snow on the ground but with my DSTC on and working I had no problem with driving or staying on the road (other cars and trucks, even 4x4's slid off the road) and holding a steady speed for road conditions. I made it though the snow storm until the DOT closed I-40 at 7200 feet elevation. The moto "For Life" had nothing to do with my decision to buy but I'm glad I did. The only thing better than owning a Volvo, is having 2 Volvo's. I have the XC90 also.




Happy owner
