Pros

For the biggest sedan they make, this car is fun to drive.  Still like the looks which is likely why Volvo hasn't changed them that much in 15 years.

Cons

Some issues with front end steering, shocks, mounts, struts, bushings since 110K miles.  I also had a voltage issue.  Overall I feel like in the past10 years since the car was paid for it is good for about $600 a year in mechanical maintenance but by doing so it also feels like it will run forever.

Glad I Bought A Volvo 15 Years Ago — Whereas in the past I would get the itch to buy a new car every 2 or 3 years, I have kept this Volvo since 2002, 12 years as my daily driver, the car is 15 years old. Regular maintenance on this car will make it last forever. I am handing this car to my kids as a safe "first car and I am happy to be able to do so.

- — Car is ok. But if you have more than 2 kids, you need V70 model. Car is quite big but trunk is not so big. Exmple baby carriage, you need to take tyres out before it fits in. Inside the car space is ok.

Watch Out For Lemons. — I must have gotten a lemon. My folks had this car from new and gave it to me in high school. It was a pretty car, perhaps the prettiest Volvo when new. The original S80 inspired the designs of each new Volvo since, if that tells you anything. It could hold its own in the performance realm, but was born to be a comfortable, luxurious executive sedan and performed that role excellently. Then, it fell apart. This car had something else broken every time I opened the door. Cracked and leaking heater core that leaked antifreeze into the floorboard, broken plastic interior parts, ground-out transmission, busted sunroof track, electrical nightmare... the list goes on. Such a shame, it was a nice car.

Well Worth The Dollars — all of the above. High dollar car easy to maintain and parts are cheap. Great gas milage and allot of luxury for a good price. Very understated on the performance side as well as a miser on the milage side

Top Saloon Car — lovely and comfortable, but engine quite thirsty. would recommend diesel. performance good, as is handling for a big saloon. some electrical gremlins starting to appear, but it is 10 years old. build quality very good, typical solid volvo. i feel very safe in it. it is a fun car to drive, but you will need a big wallet to drive it that way. spare parts seem reasonable.

Build To Last — It's fun to drive. But maintenance cost is a bit high. Excellent handling for Winter driving. After 7 years of ownership, electrical warnings on and off in occasion are quite nuisance. Interior build is still intact and no rattling while driving.

Average — This is a car more suitible to buisinessmen. Fast and comfortable. Fats on straight roads due to it's twin turbo engine, but don't try speeding in the corners, becaus heavy body and poor handling will show theyr faces here. Build quality is average.

A Wolf In Sheep Clothes — Great comfort and quality. Ride like a king and still have the speed and power of a sportscar. Discrete, a wolf in sheep clothes. Needs chip-trim to release limit-speed 250 and more acceleration. Upgrade to better breaks and needs 40mm Lowering Springs to get more handling. Ownership and repairs are low.

Twin Turbo Beast — Performance - great acceleration, twin turbo, fast car. Quality - minor problem with an oil leak, but otherwise a very well-built car. Appearance - Volvo's newer body style, very nice, better than the old boxes they used to make. Cost - average mpg so far is about 21.5, but I haven't had it on the highway much yet, so that should go up. Fun - VERY
