2002 Volvo S80 T6 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Dad loved his Volvo, and I am my
father's son, but the Volvo I have
fallen in love with is ten times the
car that dad owned when I was growing
up. That said, there's still a lot
under the skin that remains. The
safety is still there, the comfort and
solid feel is still there, but it now
has a skin that turns heads wherever I
go. I've had the car a little over a
year now, and I expect to get many
more out of the car. More than a few
people tell me that everyone in the
office envies my car. It looks and
feels good inside and out.

Best Features

Safety! Comfortable throughout: seats (and their heaters), environment control, and lots of backseat legroom. The engine is powerful enough that I never have to worry about holding anyone else up. I didn't expect to like the backseat headrest remote release as much as I do.

Worst Features

The mirrors (inside and out) and the steering column position need to be incorporated into the driving position memory control.
