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


Despite its attractive exterior, the
Swedish Volvo S80 is a sensible no-
nonsense sedan like the German's used
to make. Yesterday my neighbor and I
were noting how much more my 2004 S80
is like his old Mercedes than the
current Mercedes are, both in the
Volvo's sturdiness and high-quality and
in its lack of Jaguar-esque

If Volvo could have completely
refrained from its (admitedly minimal)
use of fake wood (or any wood) in the
interior, the S80 would be the worlds
most perfect car.

Best Features

Solid. Safe. Roomy. Qalility interior. Dignified. Perfect.

Worst Features

I'd say that Volvo should offer an AWD version, but they now do. Volvo should offer a wagon version of the S80 (the V70 is the wagon version of the smaller, mid-sized, S60). Volvo should also offer the option of a factory roof rack for the sedan (the S80 that is).
