2012 Volvo S80 Sedan 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

My S80 is a wonderful car to drive. It handles nicely and surprisingly gets good gas mileage. The S80 has a quick acceleration. The braking system is nice on dry or wet pavement.


Favorite Features

Digital read out for gas mileage, speed, automated service messaging. The automatic stopping system, although I have not had to use it.


Suggested Improvements

Improve driver seat comfort for long trips. Make heated seats standard.

Review

I got this car for the technology package, since my father is getting old. And already been in more than one major accident. The car works great. This car is at the pinnacle of safety features. Like the pedestrian sensing camera. The auto brakes. The cruise control that distances itself from the car ahead. Okay, great. But Volvo forgot that most of their customers are elderly. I just got a call from my father that he doesn't know how to turn off the defroster. The window has been fogging his windows. And he still can't control the AC. He has had this car for months and can't remember the complicated and unintuitive controls. Volvo if you are reading this, make the controls simpl


Favorite Features

Safety features = technology package.


Suggested Improvements

Make the controls simple and intuitive. The fancy knobs and buttons are impressive but will confuse the elderly.
