What You'd Expect From Volvo
By brad on
2006 Volvo S80 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
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.
Heated front seats. Interior and exterior styling. Factory speakers have good sound. Smooth ride.
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.
