Good Bet If You Have One With Warranty — It's really great car. Looks amazing. Looks like new even after 13 Years. Most comfortable and reliable car. Excellent traction and stability. Must have warranty as it's gets older. Volvo Advantages: - Free diagnostics @ Volvo Delaer Disadvantages: - Only few mechanics can do repair.

Safe, Comfortable, And Stylish. — I bought my S80 used with 160k miles. I have had it for two years and it has been very reliable. It is very comfortable and a lot of fun to drive. It is not a fast car, but picks up nicely after 70. The speedometer reads to 160mph. I had it to 145 once and had to pull back. The repairs are expensive, but you get what you pay for. The most expensive repair was replacing the emergency brake system, which set me back almost a grand. Aside from that, general maintenance will cost about 1/3 more than any domestic vehicle. I live in the Adirondacks, and unlike most cars that are 13 years old around here, there is not a touch of rust on mine. This is my second Volvo (my first being an '84 240DL, also a great car), and it has been one of the best cars I have owned.

Family Car — A good car for a family, but not for a first time driver. Plenty of trunk space, heated front seats, power windows and seats, sunroof. Many electrical issues though. Seems the Service Light is always on. Good brakes, handles well.

Safe, Comfortable, And Reliable — This vehicle has been a great family car, but still stylish and powerful. It is very comfortable and roomy, and despite its V6 automatic transmission, it has been relatively good on gas. A large gas tanks make long trips a breeze.

I <3 My S-80 T6 Exec =) — My daddy gave me this car as my gift for graduating from college. I love it! Its very powerful and handles quite well. It drives similarily to a new mustang (minus the bad rear view.) Its very classy, I love the leather seats, they really last & don't even get too hot in the sun. I love the maple trim inside, so classy. I also love how the engine is dual automatic / manual so you can go extra fast. We drove my car from Orange County to Temecula on the super windy hilly roads and my car handeled them very well since its so heavy and powerful. Whats great about this car is that its not only luxurious, fast and sportslike, its also very classy and professional, and very roomy and even a higher end family sedan - extremely WELL ROUNDED. =) Its a great purchase & until I am driving my white brand new M3 (which I plan to purchase not lease) I will be driving my S-80 baby. =) VOLVO FOR LIFE!

Buy It If Given A Choice — Very quick off the line and in a straight line not recommended for anything other than straight shots. Burns gas pretty fast, very comfortable though and rides really nice, really fun to drive. Dont like the random lights that come on.

Black Ship On Hungarian Roads — Pros: Lot of engine power, sound of inline 6,huge interior space Cons:Too heavy, 4speed is not enough, too much power for FWD, 13-14 liter/100 km I would love it with AWD, 6 speed manual transmission, lower fuel consumption.

I Love My Volvo! — I like how its not too showy but still in good taste. It runs great on the small town back roads just as good as on the major city highways with 23 MPG. This car is really fun to drive since the stero is really nice for a luxury car! It was $35,000 brand new in 2001. :D Love my Volvo and I don't care what anyone says about it!
