Don't buy 2004 Volvo S80

Vehicle

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

Review

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!

Favorite Features

Exterior style, interior creature comforts, handling, acceleration/drivability, good road feel (stable drive like a larger vehicle)

Suggested Improvements

Unreliable car due to faulty electronics design/production with frequent failures (making car inoperable), turning radius of a supertanker, mileage poor (especially at >$5/gallon), no aftermarket repair manuals available, worthless "on call" phone stuff takes up most of middle dash (never activated)
