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


Vehicle is underpowered. The sheet-
metal used is very poor. After one
year car has many dents that can’t be
explained. The roof has two that looks
like the car is buckling. The smallest
door bang turns out to be a large
dent. The doorjambs can’t be quieted.
The sunroof is noisy and grinding. I
had upgraded interior wood installed by
the dealer. Without the wood the
interior looks bland. The front wheels
have to be cleaned weekly due to the
heavy brake dust.
My wife loves the car. I on the other
hand wouldn’t purchase another until
the issues described we corrected.
However, after 31K we have had no
mechanical problems.

Best Features

Interior look after additional wood grain kit was installed, and exterior look.

Worst Features

Please use stronger sheet-metal to prevent the minor dents. Try and redirect the brake dust or use organic brake pads. Give the interior the same classy style that the exterior has.
