Failed Transmission
By joesmith7 on


2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Bought the car new in 2000, owned it for 12 years and put 126k miles on it. Car was running fine with no problems until about 112k when a pipe fitting on the radiator cracked and ruined the radiator. At 126k the transmission ripped itself apart. Got 3 separate transmissions put in and all 3 of them broke immediately. Either scraping the car or buying a new trans to put in, either way I've put a lot of money into it. And the gas mileage sucked, 14-15 city is unacceptable.

Best Features

Good audio, solid car, easy to steer, good power, twin turbo is awesome, very luxurious for the low price

Worst Features

Gas mileage is terrible. 14 city is unacceptable. Brakes need to be bigger and needs more than a 4-speed transmission.
