Paint it yellow and call it a lemon

1999 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


I was so excited when I first purchased my new Volvo. Even though it was a bit pricey, I was looking forward to getting 300,000 miles out of it. My first clue should have been when a position light message came on when I was driving it home from the dealer my first day. I have had multiple problems since that day. Under warranty the rings had to be replaced with <20,000 miles on it. I have spent thousands of $$ to try to figure out why my check engine light stays on. Over $4000 to have it fixed and 50 miles later the light came on again. Now my emissions light keeps coming on. 3 oxygen sensors later, it still comes on. Plan to put it in gear, run it off the mountain and collect the ins.

Best Features

Ride is very comfortable.

Worst Features

Volvo to stand by its product. Decrease cost of the cheap parts. REcall the whole series. Admit it is a lemon. I will never buy another Volvo.
