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.

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

I have wanted a Volvo S80 ever since the new design came out in 1999. Although it took me till 2007 to purchase a used 2006 S80, I feel that I have scored big. The exterior design is sleek and looks good from every angle. All lines look proportionate and the headlight and tail light assemblies are "Jewel-Like." The interior is refined and practical with a "Watch-Like" dash, wood trim and comfortable heated seats. The plethora of options make driving a pleasure and you will wonder how you ever drove without them. The turbo provides enough acceleration when needed and I average about 24 mpg. Quality of finish and mechanical components has been very good and service from dealer exceptional.


Best Features

Body styling, interior accoutrement, ease of controls and handling. Love the heated seats especially on very cold days here in the northwest and the winter driving mode has been useful on many occasions. Park assist is very helpful when backing up. Comfortable, and stylish ride.


Worst Features

There is no interior trunk release inside the cabin, fixed on the 2007. Increase soundproofing to eliminate some road noise. Darken the top of the dashboard to eliminate dashboard reflection, fixed on 2007.

Review

This car is underpowered, but typical of most turbos there is a lag from pressing the gas until the turbo kicks in. This car does better at higher speeds - think of it as a highway cruiser. I drive mostly highway using premium fuel and average 23 to 24 mpg. There is a 2nd A/C outlet on the center console facing backseat that is good for folks needing more than 1 outlet (just snake your cord between console and seat if you need to be tidy). Paint finish is excellent. Interior comfort is excellent. Great value.


Best Features

Heated front seats. Interior and exterior styling. Factory speakers have good sound. Smooth ride.


Worst Features

Factory radio takes up a lot of dash space for having so few features. Bought this car used and no way to delete the preset radio stations so must scroll through dead channels to get to station I want. Do wish it had more power. Suspension is a little "floaty" but not bad for such a heavy sedan.
