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


We chose this car because it was the best looking with the most interior room in its class. It is very comfortable, but the engine is woefully underpowered. Gas mileage lists between 20 and 27 mpg, I drive mostly highway and cannot get above 19 mpg, very disappointing. Little annoyances: there is only one button for lock/unlock. If your door is unlocked but passenger's is locked, you must hit the button once to lock all doors, then again to unlock all doors. Homelink garage door opener should be standard on a luxury car, is instead in the convenience package which is expensive now that they include the back up assist. It is a beautiful, underpowered car, with minor annoyances.

Best Features

Exterior styling, large interior room (I am 6'5" and fit comfortably), comfortable seats.

Worst Features

Improve engine power! Make door lock button toggle for lock and unlock with single touch, include homelink garage door opener as standard equipment!
