2008 Volvo S80 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I leased the S80 at the end of Sept. I have noticed that the tires made an awful loud noise when driving moderate & high speeds. The wind noise at 50+ mph is unbelievably loud. I have been back to the dealer twice, 3 tires were replaced because they were defective. The tire noise & vibration is still there. the tires are Continental. My owners manual had tire info for 2 other brands. I guess Continentals are cheaper for Volvo. I am shocked by the poor ride from a supposedly good company. My VW Passat rode much nicer. I drive the same highways to work an hour each way, so noise is very upsetting. I will try to go up the ladder for the tires I should have had. I was told the wind noise is norm

Favorite Features

Overall appearance interior & exterior. Great sound system. Seats are very comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

Put quality tires on all models. Reduce wind noise at speeds of 50+ mph.
