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


My S80 T6 spend the better part of its
first 2 months in the shop dealing
with a heavy vibration at high speeds
and the eventual myriad of resulting
rattles. This car did not impress
upon me the quality one would expect
for $46K. An inept service department
and crooked dealer certainly didn't
help resolve my ill feelings either.
After four months of ownership, I am
trading mine in (another reflection of
Volvo's quality is reflected in its re-
sale value). Watch out!

If you are looking for an impressive
machine, at least test drive a Saab 9-
5 Aero.
