Solid, but feaures should work better
By Spike12 on
Vehicle2006 Volvo S80 2.5T 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewA very solid and easy car to drive. Power comes on somewhat unevenly but not as bad as Passat. Turn-in is very nice. Brakes are good too. Overall pretty smooth but noisy on coarse pavement. Ride can be somewhat harsh. Coming from a Caddy SLS I find that some of the controls are not nearly as easy or as thoroughly designed in their use. Much better seating and leg room both front and back.
Best FeaturesGreat seats and very solid handling. Great build and styling. Better city mpg than SLS (1mpg) but not as good highway MPG. Handles like much lighter car and tracks well on the highway. Overall, more comfortable because of seats. Not as many features, like power tilt/tele steering wheel.
Worst FeaturesNice car but when it comes to things like radio presets, HVAC, memory seats, parking assist, keyless entry, etc they should have studied GM. Lot's of that stuff seems like quickie hacks on the Volvo and not well thought out. Not obvious on a test drive. Should more owner programmable capabilities.
