2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


I fell in love with the styling of this car the first year it was introduced--not the brick that Volvo enthusiasts admire. This is the most exciting automoabile I ever owned. But it's not just the looks that make it so great. It is a teriffic touring car, with a combination of smooth acceleration with power to get you into or out of the flow of traffic at will, and the comfort to drive for hours without fatigue. Navigation system is first rate. Backup radar has paid for itself several times, preventing rear end damage backing up in tight quarters. It's been a very reliable car, the only issues being cooling fan and battery replaced under warranty. Despite the power, highway mpg is 27.

Best Features

exterior styling, interior beauty, acceleration, driving comfort, premium sound system

Worst Features

longer wearing tires than the Michelins that came standard; rearward visibility is not the best, as with many vehicles (backup radar is highly recommended); high tech equipment draws a lot of current--don't play radio or operate nav system without motor running (a heavier duty battery would be good)
