You call this a safe car???
By Lowie on


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


This is my second Volvo. I bought this
car for safety and in both models I
barely escaped injury due to
malfuntions of the car. This car at
20000 miles died in the high speed lane
on a major highway. I coasted across
three lanes of traffic! A faulty air
valve was suposedly to blame.Last
winter my ABS went at 51,000..right
after the warranty expired!! That was
a $900 repair. I just spent $500 on a
Mass air filter sensor. Bulb
replacement has been constant.I am
ready to dump this car. My next one
will not be a VOLVO!

Best Features

I love the exterior look and the cabin is extremely comfortable and well set up.

Worst Features

Extend the manufacturers warranty. Reimbursement for a rental car when the car, while stile under warranty, is out of commission and the dealer doesn't have a loaner.
