Review of the 2005 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.

Vehicle: 2005 Volvo S80 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

This is my second S80 and I absolutely love this car. It's the perfect size, gets really good mileage and is Swedish non-nonsense luxury personified. No Lexis toys in a toy, just quiet and comfortable safety that you can trust, all in understated elegance. It also had the ability to lock in car seats for my twin grandsons that many cars to not - which is still another safety feature.

Vehicle: 2005 Volvo S80 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I have owned this car for just over 3 years ..and i must say i am loving each and every bit of it. This is my 1st Volvo and i did a lot of research and found that 2005 or 2006 S80 were the best compare to older years. I never had any problems because i have maintained it well. If you are looking for older design S80, then got for 2005 or 2006 year model. i always wanted a Volvo with turbo and i was going for S60 but i found same price and bit higher mileage an S80, and had more leg room and some neat options. And i was glad i made that decision. These cars are built solid and feel firm on road. And good mpg considering its size. I guess its a small engine with turbo.

Vehicle: 2005 Volvo S80 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

only 63,000 miles and the "No oil pressure" "stop vehicle" light comes on, I had to have the vehicle towed to the dealership and the repairs are well over $1800.00 which I cannot afford. I am NO LONGER ABLE TO GO TO COLLEGE!!! since I have no car and have no way of getting there. This car is a money pit and has literally ruined my life.

What's New for 2005

The base 2.9 model has been dropped in favor of the 2.5T model introduced late in the 2004 model year. Inside, real walnut trim replaces the faux trim used in last year's models, and you can now load six discs at a time into the in-dash CD changer. Satellite radio and run-flat tires are new options on all S80s, while 2.5T buyers can now get sport seats. A new safety feature called the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is offered later in the model year.

Volvo's flagship is due for a redesign since it was introduced in 1999. The new generation looks good and isnt overstyled like many other cars. Hopefully this new car will be competitive enough with ?...

The 99-05 Volvo S80 and 2003-2005 XC90 models use the GM 4T65E transmission. They are prone to failure. The early versions (pre-2003) used a 4th clutch hub that didn't have hardened splines on the inp...
