What a Nightmare
By Jus' me on


1999 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


I bought this vehicle used because of
the high cost only to find that this
car had been badly abused and
neglected. Unfortunately the only love
and care that would help was $$$. Not
only that, but the vehicle likes the
abuse - it gets the worst dents from
the smallest nudge. It's an aweful
investment if you don't have a lot of
money or time for the dealer (and only
the dealer) to repair or if you
work/live in a densely populated area.
Had it less than 2 years & getting rid
of it 2 years too late. And what is it
worth now??? If you like it, rent it;
it's not worth buying.

Best Features

The body is great until someone shoves the door shut with a hip!

Worst Features

Car repairs need to be fewer and less expensive. When you're in for repair everyone has or has had the same problems!! Mechanical issues include: computer/electrical glitches; power door locks, speed sensors, axle issues, etc. Also is heavy and a little slow to pick up.
