2008 Volvo S80 Sedan V8 4dr Sedan AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I bought this vehicle because it was a much better value than comparable BMW and Mercedes models and it also does not come with the pretentious stigma commonly associated with owning one of this cars German competitors. My previous vehicle was a Mercedes ML 320, it had many problems and was worth less than $5,000 when I bought my S80 and I still got more comments from people about the vehicle that I drove. The S80 has a subtle presence while still offering most of the power and luxuries that come with owning a BMW or Mercedes. It is not as dynamic as a 5 series or a powerful as a E550 but it still has as much power, performance and comfort as you could want in an everyday driver.


Best Features

Safety, V8 power, exhaust note, comfortable and simple interior, premium stereo, heated/cooled seats, AWD for NW Michigan winters, adjustable suspension, radar-guided cruise control


Worst Features

Bluetooth connectivity

Better turning radius and placement of iPod adapter.

Review

Excellent vehicle for the price. With the rebates they are offering you just can't compare to the German and Japanese alternatives. With all the safety features, very safe ride. All controls are very intuitive.


Best Features

Nav system out of the dashboard is awesome. Seat comfort. Controls.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. Nav system was real hard to find as they push Garmin unit. Took a lot of looking to find one equiped with Nav and worth it. Also standard 18 inch wheels would be a plus.

Review

The basic vehicle is fantastic, but some of the goodies available make it really special. I especially like the adaptive cruise control; it takes a bit of getting used to, but it's amazing on the highway, slowing you down when you come up on slower traffic and speeding up to your set speed when its out of your way. The vented seats too are wonderful on hot trips, and the ride adjustment is most helpful when you get into mountain roads. I have some reservations about the run flat Pirrellis but can't complain specifically yet. Plenty of power, very comfortable, and great to drive! I strongly recommend trying one!


Best Features

V8 AWD; adaptive cruise control; adjustable ride control.


Worst Features

Miss some old Volvo features: malfunctioning lamp warning and clip in driver's windshield to hold parking chits.
