serious transmission and electrical prob
By ron on


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


I would love this car if not for the steady stream of problems and very expensive repairs. I have bought 2 transmissions and had it in the shop for numerous electrical problems that they just can't fix. My dealer says they will no longer resell the s80 because they lose money on the warranty. I have owned volvos for almost 34 years and will never own one again. Volvo should do the right thing and warranty the transmission for 200,000 miles or more. Longevity, that was the volvo way. I expect to have to put a new transmission in it every year. Do yourself a favor. Don't take this vehicle, even if it is free. Much too unreliable. Two others I know that own one agree. A worthless dog of a car.

Best Features

heated seats, comfortable seats, sporty design

Worst Features

change the transmission and take care of your loyal customers or you will loose them for good. Tell the truth about problems and make good on repairs. The volvos I use to own were reliable and ran forever. this one is in the shop more than I have it on the road. Shameful.
