2012 Volvo S80 3.2 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


I got this car for the technology package, since my father is getting old.
And already been in more than one major accident.
The car works great.
This car is at the pinnacle of safety features.
Like the pedestrian sensing camera.
The auto brakes.
The cruise control that distances itself from the car ahead.
Okay, great.
But Volvo forgot that most of their customers are elderly.
I just got a call from my father that he doesn't know how to turn off the defroster.
The window has been fogging his windows.
And he still can't control the AC.
He has had this car for months and can't remember the complicated and unintuitive controls.
Volvo if you are reading this, make the controls simpl

Best Features

Safety features = technology package.

Worst Features

Make the controls simple and intuitive. The fancy knobs and buttons are impressive but will confuse the elderly.

What a strange review. The a/c is auto so you just push the "auto" button and nothing more needs to be done. This is a very simple car to operate with NOT an abundance of buttons like some cars. No, offense but maybe you shouldn't have gotten any car for your father. I feel that maybe your father's driving days should be over for the safety of the public if he can't operate these simple accessories.
