Great, but buy the extended warranty
By dave j on


2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


The S-80 Turbo is a fantasticly
designed car. Most of the problems
have been peripheral electrical
glitches, i.e. the door lock control
module, short range remote, etc. Only
one significant failure: New
transmission under warranty! Volvo was
great and replaced it immediately plus
a rental car, but no trannie should
fail at 40k. I'll wait and see, as I
just purchased the Volvo extended
factory warranty and plan to keep the
car to at least 7 years and 100k+.
It's worth it.

Best Features

The twin turbos are nice, but the car is a dream both in town and on the road. It eats asphalt and the driver never tires. It handles without any of the mush and sway that is normal for a big car. Not as tight as a BMW 535, but it definitely holds its own.

Worst Features

From the other comments in reviews and my experience, definite improvement in the electrical gadget manufacturing quality controls. I'm writing off the transmission problem as a fluke.
