Pros

This car had style and speed (and a great stock sound system), but that's about it!

Cons

If you have unlimited income to pay for all those swedish parts, you're doing better than i was!

Nice Car If You Are Sleeping With A Mechanic, Which I No Longer Am... Lol — What didn't go wrong with this car? Bulbs would burn out on a frequent basis (and we aren't talking about 1 or 2) and at $35.00+ each, not fun! Numerous suspension problems, not good! The cost of ownership is what killed it for me. Beautiful and fast but beauty is only skin deep... and looks will only get you so far...

I Just Love It! — I bought this late model 2004 S80 AWD about 6 weeks ago. I had decided that I wanted specific features such as AWD, leather and a sunroof. I wanted a car and not an SUV, so my choices were limited from a foreign car company standpoint. I wanted to keep the cost below 25k, so I certainly wasn't initally striving for a luxury car. I looked at new Subaru's, Toyota's (no AWD car) and Ford's. The price was around 30k for all the options that I was looking for. I had driven a number volvo's a few years ago when I was travelling on business on a regular basis and renting many cars. While looking on line, I came across certified used Volvo's. I read the warranty and was impressed that I could buy a luxury used car, for under 25k, and get a warranty that is essentially the same as what you get with a new car. I love this car! It is incredibly comfortable and effortless to drive. The mileage is decent for such a powerful car. I can't wait until the winter so that I can experience the handling in snow and ice.

Great Luxurious Sedan — i have 159k miles on the car. nothing major so far. all electrical things working. still good on gas, very stylish. had issues with some electrical parts but was cheap to fix (by good mechanic) Volvo does not recommend to service the transmission but you have to chaneg the transmission fluid around every 80,000 miles because it might give you problem later. not much of oil leaks. interior is stylish and good leather. But somehow hand rest in the middle gets ripped most of the time.

Nice Reliable Car — i love this car and its not my first volvo (its my third) but this has got to be my favorite so far. the car is very responsive good brakes 0-60 it felt only takes a couple of seconds. (though honestly i didn’t time it) i like foreign cars they seem to be heavier and more durable i guess

Fast But Had Problems With The Transmition. — Replaced the transmition once. Other than that the car was reliable and great for long trips. It likes a lot of gas and maintenance was high. Eventhough my experience was not too bad, I do not think I would buy another Volvo ever again.

Love The Volvo — It is my luxury car. It has power and it is now my winter car that I drive up to Pikes Peak. Fantastic on snow and ice. I pass people that are sliding and laugh. Black on black. Fuel efficient.

Pros

SAFE, CD player, very comfy seats, great rear leg room

Cons

Slow with lots of lag, drives like a barge, pitiful engine

25

Not For The Enthusiast — For an enthusiast this car is torture. Its sluggish, drives like a barge, and is a pain to park. Great for a boring doctor, but awful for a car nut like me. It also gets horrid gas mileage,about 18.5-19mpg, and I'm used to getting 27mpg in my Civic.
