Fabulous Car, When It Is Working
By Sportscarnut on


2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Exceptional performance/style for the
$. Nothing else competes with it in
this price range. Unfortunately, it
has HORRIBLE reliability. In 18 months
the following was replaced: motor
mount, ABS control unit, turn signal
switch, brake rotors, oxygen sensor,
mass flow sensor, door trim, upper
strut mount (2 times), oil return line,
strut assembly, ignition switch. Parts
failed about every 2 months, and the
parts always had to be special
ordered. I was fortunate that it was
under warranty. Be very careful about
buying one used.

Best Features

Accelleration, excellent seats for tall drivers, handling (for such a big car), interior space/comfort, decent gas mileage, nice looking (once you get used to it).

Worst Features

RELIABILITY IS AWFUL, some interior trim looks/feels cheap (faux wood), black exterior trim fades (corrected in 2002 and later models).
