My 2nd Volvo

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


The S80 was my second Volvo.What influenced my purchase was the Edmunds information which said the 2004 had 700 enhancements, most of which you could not see. This was the first model year that Volvo replaced the 2.9 6cyl with their famed 2.5T/ 5cyl engine. The recommended fuel is premium but the car's computer consistently shows 25-26 mpg combined city/hwy driving. Almost no perceptible Turbo lag when you press on the gas.This is great considering the car weighs 3,600 lbs.

Best Features

Excellent heated leather seats. The car is like a boat which wraps around you to give a real feeling of safety & security. No one does safety like Volvo.

Worst Features

1.Lack of front console storage!! 2.Lug nuts rusted and Volvo does not replace but rather puts plastic caps over them--real cheap looking. 3.Door frames are not painted(like V70) but use black adhesive stickers which easily scratch and have to be replaced.
