The Volvo S80 is the most comfortable car I have ever driven and that is including virtually all production "luxury cars". The old design 2.9 engine is plenty strong enough for me. If I could change anything it would be to reduce wind noise although it is not bad but not as good as Lexus or S series Mercedes. It has a very solid feel and to this point I have had no problems with this car.
