2000 Volvo S80 T6 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Loved the car overall but our '94 Jeep Cherokee with 230k miles is more dependable. After several repairs of one kind or another, she started hesitating. Trusted mechanic said it was throttle body covered by extended warranty so take it to them for free replacement. Local dealer charged $100 for diagnostic and said it needed $3000 head gasket. Not so local dealer charged $100 for diagnostic and said it needed a $2300 head gasket. Car currently sitting at trusted mechanic's lot waiting for retired Volvo mechanic who agrees it's the throttle body to come fix it. It's been 5 months. Tomorrow we're buying a Lexus.

Best Features

Great style and performance. Loved the turbo and the sporty/luxury combination.

Worst Features

Simply not reliable. For a car with such great style and safety reputation, she was a great disappointment.
