Too many expensive repairs

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


I've owned this volvo since Oct. 06 and it's been trouble since then. Sway bar links, turbocharger drain o-ring, breaks/rotors, 60K maintenance, and all the recalls on it. I'm still waiting from the dealership about changing the Catalytic Converter, which is thankfully covered by under 80k warranty, otherwise it would've been $1,500 to replace it. It's a very nice car, and I've read some positive reviews on it, but I'd never expected to encounter these many problems from it. I hope there's no more trouble to see on this car because I've already spent $3,100 on it fixing the above plus problems. This volvo didn't meet my expectation of a volvo vehicle that i've heard about in the past.

Best Features

comfortable heated seats, 4-CD in-dash CD changer, smooth elegant ride.

Worst Features

too late for physical improvements since there's later models of the vehicle, however, an extended warranty on some of the most frequent malfunctioning parts of the vehicle is appreciated since it's costly to fix such things as Transmission, Turbocharger, Struts, Catalytic Converter, and few more.
