2004 Volvo S80 Sedan 2.9 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Volvo S80 is the most comfortable car I have ever driven and that is including virtually all production "luxury cars". The old design 2.9 engine is plenty strong enough for me. If I could change anything it would be to reduce wind noise although it is not bad but not as good as Lexus or S series Mercedes. It has a very solid feel and to this point I have had no problems with this car.

2004 Volvo S80 Sedan 2.5T AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I never owned a Volvo until I bought this for my
wife. It quickly found its way into my
hands - a deal I could only swing by agreeing to
buy her a new XC70 wagon as a replacement.
Neither of us can imagine owning any other brand
now. This car is perhaps the most complete vehicle
one can own. It has just about everything -
unsurpassed safety, good performance, acceptable
reliability, room, AWD, the most comfortable seats
I've ever experienced, and an understated elegance.
I have around 8000 miles now and have had no
problems. Like other reviewers, I now look for any
excuse to drive. Despite Ford's ownership - this is
still a Volvo at heart. I absolutely love it.


Best Features

Safety in a world of SUV's, the #2 rated sound system on the market (Edmunds), seat comfort, xenon headlights, stability and traction control system, and the #2 sound system on the market. (Yes, it's that good)


Worst Features

No major complaints. Minor improvements to fit and finish are possible.

2004 Volvo S80 Sedan 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

What a great car! Easy to drive,
quiet, smooth and elegant interior.
When I get in MY S80 I feel like a
million dollars. This is my first
Volvo and I doubt I will ever buy from
any other manufacturer again. I had a
terrific buying experience (can you
believe that..a terrific buying
experience for a car?!?!?) and could
not be happier with the vehicle.


Best Features

Rich leather interior Great sound system QUIET ride

Review

I have never hated a car quicker.
Within the first 100 km the exterior
chrome molding has started to come off.
Within 200 km the gas pedal does not
function properly, one must depress it
a full inch before there is any
response. This is most annoying, and
the dealer tells us that nothing can be
done about it, that its just the way
Volvo makes them.

For the cost, I am exceptionally
disappointed in this car. It now has
less than 2000 km on it and we are
about to trade it in on an Audi.
Remember its really no longer a Volvo,
its an expensive Ford.


Best Features

The S80 has a very captivating appearance, that gives a tremendous first impression.


Worst Features

Improve mechanical and body quality. Improve drink holders. Improve lumbar support seat adjustments.

2004 Volvo S80 Sedan T6 Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 4A)


Review

I have driven trucks for the last 10
years and never thought I would find a
car that I wanted but the very first
time I sat in my S80 T6 I was sold for
life. It has been worth every dime of
the selling price. The salesman did
not have to sell me this car he just
took my order. It is beautiful. I
look for reasons to have to drive.


Best Features

The power and handling of a solid sports car but the feeling of safety.


Worst Features

I honestly can't think of but one thing I could ever want added to my Volvo and that is OnStar vs OnCall that is in my car
