Emissions Frustration-S80 T-6
By WoodyTBuckeye on


2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Bought vehicle with 27k-extended
warranty. Approx 53k miles, started
having emissions messages ie "system
urgent" and hazard light and the engine
went into a "idle" mode. Replaced
throttle control mechanism, software
upgrade,and other related emission
parts. After spending close to $900 on
the throttle, 3 days later, replaced 1
of the 2 back O2 sensors.($363) One
week later, the other back O2 went-
$256. I understand under the new
warranty, this is a covered item. I am
probably getting rid of the car though
I love driving it. Total spent=$2k. I
will probably buy a new one but will
read the fine print on the warranty.

Best Features

I like having many features at my finger tips-radio features especially. THe Turbo has "lots of guts". The color is excellant also-moondust. Very roomy trunk.

Worst Features

Too much noise around the moonroof area. Needs better quality leather on the seats. I read how expensive it is to replace the bumpers if the Volvo was in a 5 mph crash performed by the insurance industry-WOW !!!
