Great family car w/ some flaws
By mally on


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


Car is excllent on the highway and is very comfortable for the front two occupants. Rear can get tight w/ car seat. minimal rode noise. Cup holder design horrible. located near some very sensitive electrical mechanisms. Car stuck in park intermittently regardless of multiple trips to the dealer. seems to be a recurrent problem volvo won't fix. have had three volvo's and this might be my last due to this recurrent problem

Best Features

Safety still solid as a tank, excllent high way ride, great traction in the snow great engine reliability (2.5T)

Worst Features

rear seats, cupholder setup, stuck in park issues especially during colder months.

You have probably long since sold this car, but just in case I thought I'd share. When I had the stuck-in-park issue with my Nissan Maxima, a change of transmission fluid eliminated the problem instantly.
