Cheap to run, good gas mileage, very comfortable for distance driving


Expensive parts (Dual mass fly wheel & clutch £1100), heavy small turning circle, annoying on board computer requires geniune Volvo computer services


Not Bad Overall — Not too bad at all really. Plenty of power from a 5 cylinder diesel, turbo gives it enough accelaration for most situations, everything just seems to work if not in a dull and boring style, however its comfortable and seems to eat miles at reasonable consuption, 55mpg on a motorway run seems good compared to other large exec saloons and dispite the galactic mileage still seems as good as it was when i bought it 4 years ago

To much gas consumption


Safety First — Real great. A bit costly parts though, but still a really handsome and safe car. It consumes alot of gas but I think it's worth it. The driving experience is really good and the view from the driver seat is excellent.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Windsheild wipers con not be purchased justy anywhere. Must be purchased at dealership.


One Great Car — We have owned our 2005 S80 for several years. My next car will be a Volvo. We have had zero problems with it. I bought it for it's safety. We went from an Expedition to a sedan. I wanted to make sure my family was safe. I got even more. The gas mileage is great. The service has been a piece of cake and it runs like new. I would recommend the S80 to anyone wanting a high end car.

Safety And Design — After being in a car accident, we decided to go to the leader of safety, Volvo. The car is beautiful, comfortable and luxurious.
