1999 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


Volvo should be embarrassed with how
this vehicle has seriously tarnished
thier reputation. From day one, we
experienced multiple electrical
problems, such A/C staying on after
shutoff, molding falling off, idiot
lights that indicated engine trouble,
malfunctioning locks, doors, batteries,
etc. Everytime car brought in to Volvo
128, service department claimed nothing
was wrong. This car & most importantly
the dealer were a complete fiasco that
sheds Volvo in a light different from
what they spent years trying to develop.

Best Features

Good acceleration. Fairly comfortable and safe.

Worst Features

Get rid of Volvo 128 dealer as agent. They do great dis-service to the Volvo name. Prove the car before they release it. Accept responsibility for faults and fix without question. Electrical. Exterior moldings do nothing to protect car
