2003 Volvo S80 T6 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I recently purchased a brand new 2003
Volvo S80 T6. The first time that I
opened the hood I discovered that the
car has significant rust and corrosion
problems. The problems were brought to
the dealers attention immediately after
purchase, however after several months,
the factory has done little to address
the situation. Neither the dealer or
the factory seem to care about customer
satisfaction. There customer service
rates an F.


Best Features

Great brakes, very good performance, relatively quit if you don't mind rattles and squeeks.


Worst Features

You can't fix a problem using the same people that created it. Fire the customer service people and start over!

We have purchased our first Volvo and
love the car. It is a "solid" ride
with plenty of comfort.

Quality of the car and its looks.


Worst Features

Could use a "mute" button on the radio\CD player or steering column.

2003 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The VOlvo S80 is the finest car I have
ever driven. Thle styling was new,
starting with the 2002 model year. Car
is roomy inside and holds 4 to 5
people. Steering, power, acceleration,
placement of instruments etc. is great.
Seating is extremely comfortable and is
posture friendly. Well designed. Thlley
thought of evereything.


Best Features

Favorite features are the surround sound premium stereo system,stations are easly to program. It has the finest navigation system on the market, and the only one I know of that has a remote control unit, easy to use.. Also the message system is also helpful and user friendly.


Worst Features

nothing I can think of at present.

Review

I do love my S80. I have two
complaints. I need more lumber support,
and the headlights keep cracking!!!
I had one crack in April, and figured
somebody hit it. The other one cracked
two days ago. That time it was just
parked in the sun. If you have had this
problem, or any other, seriously, don't
just post to this board. Go to
WWW.NHTSA.COM and enter a complaint. If
that transmission slips and the brakes
fail, THEY need to know about it.


Worst Features

Headlights crack in hot sun. I live in VERY HOT climate.

Review

Besides the class-leading safety in
this model, Volvo has perfectly
balanced performance and comfort in the
T6.
This car is roomier than the BMW 5-
series cars...both cabin and trunk.
This is my 4th Turbocharged Volvo, and
is the best one yet!
I was surprised at how reasonable the
cost was after all incentives were
applied


Best Features

Interior is very comfortable. The seats are the best I've tried. The optional sound system is truly amazing. Stomp on the accelerator, and the 280 ft-lb response is gratifying, to say the least! The instantaneous MPG readout takes some of the fun out of that, tho.


Worst Features

Later this year the 2004 is supposed to have the awd version with the "4C" chassis system. That will take care of torque steer. How about a handy little nook that my sunglasses will fit in?
