good, bad and ugly
By ronia1 on


2001 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl 4A)


i sometimes refer to my S80 as my $40,000 bucket o' bolts, but i was spoiled by my 94 960 sdn with 170000 trouble free miles. the S80 is gorgeous BUT: both struts noisy (mind you at 60K miles; that may be their life span), head seal leaking, sunroof noisy when opened because suspension is SO tight, windows squeak when going down (always on pass side, sometimes on driver side), and the finish put on plastic panels inside scratches...but I love Volvo!!!
