A refined weakling
By Richard on


2006 Volvo S80 2.5T 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I didn't buy this car for the power... and it's a good thing. Acceleration is poor at best. My 2002 Toyota 4Runner SUV seemed to have better acceleration. Handling is a bit sketchy as well. HOWEVER, what I did buy this car for... comfort, safety, quality, value - it's a homerun. Compared against some of the other luxury sedans, this is a value buy and a good entry level luxury sedan. It may disturb many that Volvo is now owned by Ford, but rest assured that Volvo has been able to keep quality issues to a minimum.

Best Features

Leather is very nice quality. The reverse alert system has been a bumper- saver numerous times for me already. The cabin is very, very quiet. Compared to many in the same car class, passenger room is very good (especially when compared to Lexus).

Worst Features

The range of movement on the steering wheel could be improved. I'm a big guy and driver side leg room (particularly the left) is a little tight. There's only one power outlet in the front cabin, not good if you have a radar detector and a phone charger.
