2000 Volvo S80 Sedan T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Review

Yes, if it were a newer model S80.
The 1999 & to a lesser extent 2000
model were plagued with electrical
problems. Since I bought mine, the
steering rack, gas tank door stop, rt
headlamp assy, computer software,
various light bulbs, electronic
throatle body assy, body rattles, &
other stuff too numerous to remember
have been diagnosed as defective.
Volvo of Nashville declined to honor
the factory warranty, & gave poor
service. Volvo of Cinncinatti was
great! You can't gas up w/o removing
the key or the computer goes wacky.
Too many quirks. Quality greatly
improved after Ford took over and
poured $$ into Volvo. S60 is bullet
proof per several servie


Best Features

Power. I punch it it goes- fast& powerful. A beautiful car to look at. Top of line stereo- awesom! Fuel econcmy 30 MPG- impressive. Seats- leather & power- great touring sedan.


Worst Features

Electronics & rattles. Was disappointed that the 2K Bonnevile I had gave far less trouble as does still my 1999 Ford F250 at 130K miles- factually no troubles ever. Volvo is a premiumn Euro car. It needs to act like it.

Review

Bought 1yr ago in Tewksbury Ma
(Americar)-for $3000 more than they
advertised it (web). I put 10k miles on
the car in 1 yr. w/n 1 week-check
engine&service lights on. Americar
turned off.The lights returned after 5
days. Americar was not capable of
fixing. It was above them (they
admitted). Front/rear stabilizers had
to b replacd w/n 1st month, needed
replacing 8 mo. later. Steering
grinded. Control module 4 steering
wheel (radio-wipers-BLINKERS-
HEADLIGHTS)shutdown. Going down steep
hill-noises like car about 2 fall
apart. Began revving very high @
stoplights. Engine shut down in park
after revving & jolting.
Last straw. Traded car in 1 week l8r.

Review

My S80 T6 is the seventh Volvo I have
owned. This is also the last one I
will purchase.

At 31,000 miles the steering rack and
most of the front suspension failed.
Since the car was Volvo Certified these
repairs were covered under warranty.
However, the delays, fowl-ups and
outright lies by the dealer service
staff have forced me to demand the
dealer (Transatlantic Motors in
Hyannis, Massachusetts) buy back the
car. The car is going on its sixth day
out of service, primarily because of
the service department's ineptitude in
ordering parts properly.

Frankly, I find more respect and
consideration in the service department
of the local Hyundai dealer.


Best Features

Excellent appearance and fun performance with the turbo.


Worst Features

Strip local dealer of franchise. I would still be a loyal Volvo customer were it not for the shoddy treatment I have received by my local dealer - Transatlantic Motors in Hyannis, MA.

Review

All complaints
posted apply to my auto too! Buy the
extended warranty. Maybe the
numerous "kinks" will be out of the car
by 50K. Having logged as many as 8-16
annual trips to the dealer for repairs,
why take a chance? I bought the
warranty, at 45k.

When not in the shop, the car is a
dream to drive. Repairs major:38k mi.
slow down on the freeway = throttle
etc; noisy suspension = motor
mounts,struts,etc.. Minor
annoyances:door lock, steering wheel
adjustment failures/breakage. Brakes
wear fast 3-front,1 rear replaced
before 40k;tires too -nope not the
driver, its the car (soft, safe Volvo
brakes, heavy car (note the motor mount
failures).


Best Features

You FEEL safe, protected. SUV's and 18 wheelers are of no consequence.


Worst Features

Reduce cost of extended warranty, new Volvo at Cost for owners who have significant numbers of "under warranty" service contacts. Bring Ford up to VOLVO quality control reputation, or Get away from Ford. Seek and achieve the 10's they want/expect the dealers to earn.
