Consumer Beware!!
By Joy on


1999 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


Purchased this car from private seller at 20,000 miles. Previously had a 240 sedan and wagon. Thought this was the most beautiful and comfortable car I had ever experienced. The love affair was short lived. Constant problems with electronics, sensors, throttle, ball joints, computer modules... at 80,000 miles was told ball joints needed replacing (I found out at that time that they had been recalled and replaced prior to my purchasing from seller). Unreliable and expensive car to repair!! Company does not seem to care that their customers were sold an expensive piece of junk. Trying to get rid of now... not running, needs $3500 more, will just sell for junk which it is! Never another Volvo!!

Best Features

Body style, interior features, stereo, spacious interior, smooth ride.

Worst Features

Everything mechanical and electronic. Driver cannot see well when looking toward back/side for traffic in other lanes. Clearance a little low on front end, often scrape when turning in parking lots.
