2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan


This is my first and last Volvo, I have
driven it 60k miles. It's comfortable
and attractive to look at, but gee, I
am disappointed in the build and
mechanical quality. After all the front
suspension work (recall) the car scares
me on the highway. I hate the surge
when the AC switches on and off, the
door locks sound like a sick power
drill, and the car rattles like an 80's
American car. I live with it all, but
for $35K I expected a lot more! Since
the warranty ended it has cost me 3K to
keep up with it. I've tried to trade it
but dealers price it way below trade in
value and then run away - they don't
want it in thier used inventory either!

Best Features

Leather interior is nice. Power seats memory works great. Like the trunk size, very attractive body lines.

Worst Features

Steering is loose. Very easy to lock your keys in an S80 - keep an extra key handy. Get to know an independent Volvo mechanic - the dealer takes forever to get the job done and has a higher hourly rate than the BMW or Benz dealership.
