I am in LA, Cali. I purchased this car for $9,500 out the door. Has 76k miles. A few repair issues. Replaced front struts & brakes ($750) and timing belt service ($650). What do you guys think? The car looks nice. Has the twin turbo 268 hp xenon lights. Parking sensors. Just a little worried about Volvo reliability. I don't want any more repairs or issues!!
Did any body post a step by step directions of how to install new struts in your 2005 S80 Volvo?

I had a 2001 S80 and regretted it from the very beginning. It was a service loaner with 8000 miles on it. I traded it in a year and a half later with 28000 miles, and lost 50% of what I paid just to be rid of it. I traded it for a 2005 G35x which was nice for my wife but too small--we eventually traded that for a 2006 Lexus ... Read More
I have a 2005 S80 and recently looked at the BMW 5 series as a second car. The Volvo gives you more value for your money. THe ride and handling on my T6 is smoother and not as firm as the BMW and prefer the Volvo. Also looked at the Jaguar XJ8 and that is a fantastic riding car. Wish I could afford it.
we replaced our 2005 es330 with a 2008 s80 t6 and the volvo is much better than the lexus in every way. and considering the cheaper lease deals compared to the new es350, the volvo is a steal. the lexus drives like a camry while the volvo drives like a luxury car - smoother and quieter.
Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket blade that fits. The Volvo dealer charges over $50 for a replacement set and they don't last very long. If not, is there a way to replace the rubber only?
The Volvo S80 is Volvo's LPS entry as far as I can tell. It may not rise to the L or the P of the LPS sedans chewed about on this forum. At worst it is a "near"-LPS car. The newest version with a V8, AWD and most of the features and creature comforts afforded LPS owners probably is a "contender." But, despite its V8, et al, it probably would not ... Read More
Based on my 6 months (7244 miles) experience with 2006 Volvo S80 2.5T AWD, I highly recommend it. Runs great and very stable ride at high speed (>80 mph), so much difference from Honda Accord I used to have. I encountered one glitch at the very beginning (93 miles): check engine light on, which was easily fixed by software update. Fuel efficiency is better than published numbers (20/27), I easily achieved ... Read More
So BMW slipped in 2006 ? They had the highest resale in 2005. I'm leaning torwards a BMW, because I only have to drive 45 minutes to get to the dealership in Amarillo. The Volvo, dealership is in Lubbock,(2 1/2 hours away)and I wasn't thrilled at all with the way they treated me when I was trying to buy a S60R. Rocky
I can agree with you 100%...I have NEVER had a vehicle that was such a hunk of JUNK as my 99 S80 T6. Have had to replace the ABS master control system, the fan for the AC, the compressor, and the power-steering reservoir. Auto-dimming rearview mirror blew a seal and costs $530+ to replace, (luckily it still reflects so no-go there), I have had to replace a broken headlight at $300+, ... Read More
Since Oct. 2005 my S80 has required more than $5,300 in repairs/maintenance. Had to replace transmission at 27,000 miles, replace an engine mount at 30,000 in addition to an oil leak repair which came to over $1,700. Had to replace front disk brake pads at 25,000 miles. It has become a Ford - no surprise!! Fix Or Repair Daily. Ford did the Swedes no favor in this merger. My FIRST Volvo ... Read More
I need a luxury/entry-luxury vehicle for city driving, that is also capable of handling the mountains, all for under $33K. My work requires shuttling executives (luxury/class). My personal life includes being both a single guy in Los Angeles (style) AND spending significant time in the mountains (awd or stability control). Also, the vehicle should make me look older/more executive than my age (early 30’s), without looking pretentious. I will probably finance ... Read More

I took one of these caffinated cars for a test drvie about a year ago (with the stick shift). The 300HP 5cylinder engine and the upgraded interior etc etc -- "might" have made it eligible in this crowd -- at least moreso than the S80 T6, IMHO. Of course the S60 Type R that I test drove did demonstrate that trait that is just not acceptable in this segment -- "it ... Read More
i think, yes, they do depreciate fast. as far as the deal? well, carsdirect says I can get an '05 for only about $3K more. Personally, for that difference, I'd probably opt for a year younger car. By the way, i read recently on the leasing boards that Volvo is giving dealers $8K cash on 2005 S80 leases that are done through banks other than Volvo financing. I'd look into going ... Read More
qbrozen, I actually liked my 1999 S70 better than my 2002 S80. I did like the exterior styling of the S80 better, but that's about it. The S80 just didn't feel as solid to me, and the interior of the S70 just seemed to be of higher quality. In addition, I found that the S80 had blind spots which were annoying when backing up or changing lanes. I just ... Read More
Due to lots of miles on our A6 AWD and E320 4-matic, we are in market and wondering if we should give S80 AWD a look. From the Edmunds overview and the postings, It seems that the S80 is a good value, comfortable but will be a bit softer in terms of handling than the Audi in particular. How does S80 behave on winding roads, or emergency maneurvers? Also any ... Read More
