Astounding — This car has been constantly reliable and great to drive. There is never a moment in which I disliked this car. Everything has been perfect. Always felt safe, but it never took away from the great performance of this car.

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.

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.
