Despite its attractive exterior, the
Swedish Volvo S80 is a sensible no-
nonsense sedan like the German's used
to make. Yesterday my neighbor and I
were noting how much more my 2004 S80
is like his old Mercedes than the
current Mercedes are, both in the
Volvo's sturdiness and high-quality and
in its lack of Jaguar-esque
If Volvo could have completely
refrained from its (admitedly minimal)
use of fake wood (or any wood) in the
interior, the S80 would be the worlds
most perfect car.
I'd say that Volvo should offer an AWD
version, but they now do.
Volvo should offer a wagon version of
the S80 (the V70 is the wagon version
of the smaller, mid-sized, S60).
Volvo should also offer the option of a
factory roof rack for the sedan (the
S80 that is).
