Nice car but has a very rough ride
By Dave M on


2008 Volvo S80 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


My S80 is a well built car, but after owning it a couple of weeks, I'm extremely disappointed in how rough the ride is. I called the dealership to see if they had could order shocks that aren't as stiff but they tell me that none are available. Their recommendation was to decrease the tire pressure; not much of response if you ask me. Next time, I'll be sure to test drive a car on something other than the dealer's recommended route.

Best Features

The interior is simple but has a "quiet elegance" about it. Handles well with very little engine noise. Front seats are great. (Back seat is really tight for anyone even approaching six feet with a six foot driver.) Sound system is so-so. Good climate control package.

Worst Features

Ride is far too rough for a car in this class. Rear seat leg room should be increased.
