First New Volvo in 20 years
By louc on


2005 Volvo S80 2.5T Fwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


The S80 is a tremendous improvement over
by last 240. The interior is much more
comfortable, guages and controls are
excellent and the front and rear seat
room is much improved. The ride is firm
but very supportive, with very little
road noise. The performance is very good,
the turbo operates without lag, fuel economy has
never been below 24 MPG. The car is a
tremendous value whencompared to a BMW
5-Series or Lexus. I have not had any initial build
problems, but have had many on my SAABS
and BMWs.
