nice car but a few headaches
By arnold becker on


2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


It's a nice design but alot of quality
problems. For example;
The sun roof rattled. I had the
hardware replaced .It still rattles.
The steering wheel had some play in it
after 10,000 miles. Took it to the
dealer and had it tightened.
Sometimes it is hard to start (extended
cranking). I took it to the dealer.They
couldn't find the problem. Still gives
us problems. The little sliding door in
the dash snapped in two. Dealer
charged us $50 to replace it. Car is
sluggish, feels like a sitting duck on
the expressway.Plus poor rear window
visiblity. I feel safer in our smaller
BMW 325xi.

Best Features

Heated Leather seats. Body stying. The engine compartment is beautifully layed out. The Battery in the trunk is a plus.

Worst Features

Need better quality workmanship. Improve rear window visiblity.
