Looks Good - Did't Last
By Gator104 on


2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


We bought this used with 39,000 miles. It has low profile tires which was a mistake as the noise from them is almost unbearable. Had the front suspension replaced at 87,000 (ride still noisy even after that). Had the sunfoof guides replaced due to roof rattle. Also, light bulbs burned out on a routine basis - a big pain. Little trim items kept breaking that had to be replaced - also a pain. THe radio/CD was of poor quality with poor sound and reception. Don't know if the lack of quality was the fault of Volvo or Ford cheapening things once they took over. Resale value does not hold at all. Finally dumped this dog at 89,000 miles and bought a used Lexus RX300, which is wonderful.

Best Features

Interior comfort and sunroof. Also got decent mileage and has a big tank so you can cruise farther w/o having to fill up.

Worst Features

Improve quality and reliability
