My S80 is a well built car, but after owning it a couple of weeks, I'm extremely disappointed in how rough the ride is. I called the dealership to see if they had could order shocks that aren't as stiff but they tell me that none are available. Their recommendation was to decrease the tire pressure; not much of response if you ask me. Next time, I'll be sure to test drive a car on something other than the dealer's recommended route.
The interior is simple but has a "quiet elegance" about it. Handles well with very little engine noise. Front seats are great. (Back seat is really tight for anyone even approaching six feet with a six foot driver.) Sound system is so-so. Good climate control package.
Ride is far too rough for a car in this class. Rear seat leg room should be increased.
