Used 2000 Volvo S80 Sedan Consumer Reviews
The S-80 is avery comfortable and good looking veh, but it has been the most unreliable veh I have ever owned, in the last 3 years the car has been in the shop over a dozen times, and for weeks at a time. The head gasket blew at 4000 miles, the electrical system, a nightmare, the transmission does not function properly. All of this Volvo acknowleges, but they will not step up to the plate and get me out of a lease that only has 3 months remaining. My car is currently in the shop and has been for the past week and a half. I will never buy another Volvo!
On the plus side, very comfortable vehicle inside, also great looks. Unfortunately, many trips to service dept after only 24k miles for suspension/electrical/ problems mostly. Unacceptable for a 40k+ automobile. I think I'll go back to Japanese cars next.
We have had this car for two years. In that span, it has broken 15 times, for items such as suspension, electrical, mechanical and ignition.
