2001 Volvo S80 T6 Executive 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Gone are the days when a Volvo lasted for 200,000 miles. I am on my third Volvo and can't say I would buy another one. The last one was a 1995 850 that I drove for 60,000 miles before the transmission went on it. I traded it for a 2001 S80, which I have loved, but now the transmission needs to replaced at 72,000 miles. $5,500 is a bit much to sink into a car with a blue book value slightly higher than that. These cars are great if you can afford to keep sinking money into them.

Best Features

Great looks, comfortable drive.

Worst Features

Steering radius could be improved, longer warranties are needed to cover faulty transmissions.
