Never Again
By Robert Linscott on


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


S80 2.9 - 2000: This car has been a
total headache for our family. The
car is always falling apart.
Electrical night mare, from lights to
locks to sensors. Hub bearings X 5,
sunroof falling apart, hub bolts
falling out twice while on vacation,
broken coils spring, faulty fan motor
for radiator, oil flame seal bad, and
a bad motor mount. So much for the
flagship of Volvo. The S80's market
value is poor and still is rated as
less than average for the 2004. No
wonder the BMW and Mercedes lines are
so popular. My first volvo and
definitely my last -never, never
again. Waltrip Volvo in Nashville
area loves to see me, and my checkbook
on a regular basis.

Best Features

Rides smooth, but its weight is a concern in cornering. Seats are comfortable.

Worst Features

Stop b.s'ing the customer and tell them this vehicle is a maintenace headache. Look at the blue book value after the first year. Electrical is still not right on the current model.
