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.

Just Keeps Going. — Great travel car Have had the car for a couple of years now. It has not failed on me once. I hear that repair costs are expensive, but have not had anything done yet. I am about to get a timing belt replacement done since the car is at 105,000 miles and it will be about $650. I car is solid; it does not rattle, the road noise is very minimal and the stock stereo is great, but I just could not resist putting two twelves in the back. It does not accelerate the fastest, but it goes quick enough. The leather has held up over the years and still looks fine, no holes. All electronic components still work including the wonderful heated seats, that are 8-way electronically adjusted with 3 memory buttons that the car can recognize different people when they unlock the car with the remote, the seat will adjust. The car is very heavy, which wears down the breaks and puts a lot of dust on the wheels, atleast for how i drive. It is Fwd and handles like a champ in the snow. It has standard traction control, plus a winter driving mode that helps as well. If you are looking for a good cheap car, a used s80 is the perfect car. in Feb 2006, I picked that car up for $9,500 with 87,000 on it and after 18,000 nothing has failed.

Pros

No interior rattling after 9th year of owership

Cons

Electrical intermitent is a nuisance.

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.

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

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

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.

- — 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.
