2006 Volvo S80 Sedan 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Bought this car when it had 60000 miles on it and now has 124000 miles. Very happy with car. My wife loves it. She drives it more than I. Had to have AC condenser replaced at 119000 miles. Headlight connectors go bad and have had to replace headlights more frequently than expected. Other than those issues it has been normal maintenance. Get 24 MPG on average and 28 on hwy.


Best Features

Comfortable with plenty of pep for us. Exterior design still looks better than 2013 model.


Worst Features

Radio could use a redesign.

2006 Volvo S80 Sedan 2.5T 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Car is excllent on the highway and is very comfortable for the front two occupants. Rear can get tight w/ car seat. minimal rode noise. Cup holder design horrible. located near some very sensitive electrical mechanisms. Car stuck in park intermittently regardless of multiple trips to the dealer. seems to be a recurrent problem volvo won't fix. have had three volvo's and this might be my last due to this recurrent problem


Best Features

Safety still solid as a tank, excllent high way ride, great traction in the snow great engine reliability (2.5T)


Worst Features

rear seats, cupholder setup, stuck in park issues especially during colder months.

Review

I have owned two S80 sedans a 2002 and a 2006. They both had the metallic black paint and the premium sound cd player. I use this car for highway travel mostly.When I get in it to take the road its like being in another world,it is truly fun to drive and the seating is so very comfortable and relaxing. Every passenger says the same thing. I get it washed and detailed often and use only premium fuel.I really like the facts that lots of people usually can't tell what year or make it is without asking.This car seems to be built for the mature driver who is beyond the "race car" years and makes a statement that "I'm concerned about safety and comfort."


Best Features

Interior space for adult driver and passengers. Body styling. Especially the seats


Worst Features

Get rid of the pop-up console cup holder. Improve quality of carpeting- it seems to be difficult to clean and shows wear quicker than it should.

Review

The car is fun to drive and nice to look at but the quality of the interior is a bit poor especially the leather seats which tend to wear quicker than most other vehicles with leather trim. Volvo could pay better attention to maintaining their reputation of producing a quality vehicle. Reliability rate low for this model due to transmission noise when shifting from park to reverse


Best Features

comfort and leg room


Worst Features

Improve quality of seating, floor mats and transmission

Review

A very solid and easy car to drive. Power comes on somewhat unevenly but not as bad as Passat. Turn-in is very nice. Brakes are good too. Overall pretty smooth but noisy on coarse pavement. Ride can be somewhat harsh. Coming from a Caddy SLS I find that some of the controls are not nearly as easy or as thoroughly designed in their use. Much better seating and leg room both front and back.


Best Features

Great seats and very solid handling. Great build and styling. Better city mpg than SLS (1mpg) but not as good highway MPG. Handles like much lighter car and tracks well on the highway. Overall, more comfortable because of seats. Not as many features, like power tilt/tele steering wheel.


Worst Features

Nice car but when it comes to things like radio presets, HVAC, memory seats, parking assist, keyless entry, etc they should have studied GM. Lot's of that stuff seems like quickie hacks on the Volvo and not well thought out. Not obvious on a test drive. Should more owner programmable capabilities.
