1999 Volvo S80 Sedan T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

Happy for those of you who love your
S80, this car has been a nightmare for
me. It would be fun to drive, except
for anticipating the next expensive
repair. The car has been in the shop
regularly since new, even had to
replace the gas tank (of course, 5K
miles AFTER warranty expired).
Repeated calls and emails over the
years to Volvo NA and dealer regarding
quality issues have gone unanswered.
I will NEVER buy another Volvo, and
tell anyone who will listen about my
bad experience(s). A shame, because I
was really excited about Volvo when I
first purchased this car.


Best Features

heated seats, manual shift mode, great defroster


Worst Features

For those of us with significant issues, some (friendly) gesture from Volvo NA would go a long way.

Review

My S80 is a T6 and I just love it!
Approaching 80,000 miles and no
complaints on this car. One of the
nicest cars to drive or to even be a
passenger in. So comfortable and so
fast! I had a couple initial problems
after I bought the car (covered by
warranty). The dealer upgraded the
software in the car and after that I
never had a single problem.
Absolutely nothing at all! The dealer
says the upgrade is offered free of
charge and only has to be done to the
car once and never again. Some people
just don't get it done and would
rather complain about poor
reliability. Wake up people, it only
takes a few minutes for them to do.
This car is great!


Best Features

This is a very reliable, very comfortable, and a very solid car. The car is so quick! When new, I paid about $50,000 for this car (well worth the price). This car is a great used car buy at it's current price!


Worst Features

Volvo should send a letter to people about the upgrade that is available.

Review

I know the saying, usually the ones to
speak up are the ones with
complaints. I have no complaints at
all! I bought this car used with
about 20,000 miles. The car now has
about 70,000 and has been like gold to
me. I love getting in my car and
driving every chance I get! Very
comfortable and very reliable. Did I
say fast? With it's twin turbo's, the
T6 is incredible! Maintenance has
been low and priced right. This car
has exceeded my expectations and I am
100% satisfied with this model!


Best Features

Looks great, very fast, and a good reliable car.


Worst Features

An all wheel drive model would be neat!

Review

I have now owned three Saab models
which have been relatively nice
vehicles. I decided to take a closer
look at Volvo's flagship vehicle when
it was released. To my surprise I
wound up trading in my tired Saab for
Volvo's S80 T6 sedan. This is a great
car! The car was just over $50,000
out the door and the dealer wouldn't
budge much on the price. Regardless,
no regrets on this car. The car now
has over 90,000 miles of trouble free
driving. Runs nicer than any other
car I've owned. Much more comfortable
than my previous Saabs and
acceleration to leave all other luxury
cars in the dust (most sports cars
too.) All around, this is great car!


Best Features

Solidness and performance of the S80 is better than the competition at any price. Seat comfort is better than a 10. Very dependable car!

Review

I purchased this car in 2000. It was
a 1999 S80 T6 and had 22,000 miles on
it when I purchased it. I now have a
little over 70,000 miles on my car and
I am as happy as can be. The car
rides great, is very comfortable, the
twin turbo's are wonderful, and the
car has been very reliable. Other
than regular maintenance, I have not
had any repairs. If you're looking
into a 1999 Volvo S80 T6, buy with
absolute confidence. When I hit the
100,000 mark it should be paid off. I
will look into another T6. This is
definately the best car my wife and I
have ever owned!


Best Features

One of the nicest cars to drive at any price. Car has been very reliable and still runs like the day I bought it. Volvo did great with this car!
