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.

  • 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 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.

Vehicle: 2005 Volvo S80 T6 Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

This is the second Volvo we have owned, nothing's better. We bought ours in Germany and had it shipped to the US. It's the best car, it rides great and handles well. Very roomie the children love it.

Vehicle: 2005 Volvo S80 T6 Premier Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)

This car is truly worth the money. This is the first volvo I have ever owned and probably would never buy any other car. I have to say it handles as well as a BMW. This sedan is spacious, even with 3 kids in the back, and one of them in a car seat. The car is a very classy car but yet it has a nice sporty flare. The turbo definitely gets this car out of its own way. The most important factor is its safety rating. That is why I bought a Volvo in the first place. All the features and controls are easy to reach without feeling like your going out of your way, or taking your eyes off the road. Highly recommend this car to anyone who wants extra value and safety for their buck!!
