2-Year Update: After Two, No More
By dgreer on


2008 Volvo S80 T6 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


This updates comments from 2 years ago, as the lease nears expiration. After 30K miles the suspension creaks and pops just as my 2000 model.Replacement parts by dealer never fixed the problem, It's built in by design flaw. Gas mileage has improved to 21mpg, mixed;and 27hwy.But my '04 Jag XJ8 is better:22/30, and much more fun to drive. Engine and transmission have been great, but small problems mount up, including warped brake rotors at 28K. Maintenance is relatively expensive, but is included on 2009-10 leases. Overall, a nice car; but at in this class,over $40K, I won't lease another, and would not want to purchase for the long term.

Best Features

Turbo engine; highway cruising; visibility; exterior design.

Worst Features

Fix the suspension;make handling more sport like; make the seats (which are good) firmer with more lateral support;improve brake design for greater longevity.
