Its Paid For — safe and sensible. comfortable and good on fuel. stereo kicks ass, nice big trunk to hold many golf clubs. sunroof that wild woman love to hang out of bare chested. has a gas cap that is made of carbon fiber that shaves off 3 pounds of weight. will go around corners with the greatest of ease.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: comfort

Cons: not fast enough

Nice Sensible Near Lux Sedan — it has great design and quality, but some short comings. suspension rubber bushings all low quality and prematurely worn. gas mileage good - 25 mpg - for a car this size. v6 - non turbo - has plenty of giddyap style consistent and still current

Pros: well designed and layed out

Cons: not as rock solid as volvos were

Volvo S80... A Wonderful Car!!! —

I love my car! Lucky to have it... It's solid and very heavy so I don't worry about skidding in the winter. Overall, the build quality is awesome it's only broken down twice- once because of a computer glitch 4 years ago and last year when the alternator went. No other problems- very solidly built. Performance is very good. It's no speed demon so the pick up is pretty slow but I wasn't looking for a sports car, just something safe and classy. It's heavy and drives much like a boat- smooth and steady- a joy to drive! This is a classy looking car mine is the classic silver and has the black trim which I really like. I love the black leather interior comfortable and classy. There is nothing I don't like about the appearance of this car! The cost factor is the only somewhat downside of the car. It averages about 19mpg. Not terrific, but worth it. The repair costs are very high too, but any more expensive car will need more expensive parts. Over all, I believe that the other features and overall quality of the car overshadow the fact that the S80's maintenance is more costly than some other cars. Fun factor! If you don't mind a non-speedy ride, this car has it! Lots of room- for up to 4 passengers in leather seats. The front seats are heated as are the side view windows- great for the winter! It also has radio controls on the steering wheel which I love since I have to have my music. Over all I highly recommend this safe car to anyone!

Pros: Safe, Classy- an Awesome Ride!

Cons: Wish mpg could be better...

Safest Car Out There — this car is my stepdads old car. he gave it to me because it was already paid off and he wants an excuse for a new car. The volvo is a very safe car and the best thing about it is its very fast. you barley have to touch the gas to get it going. the only downside is the volvo isnt my car of choice but its ok for now. it gets from point a to b in a good amount of time and thats what counts in my opinion.

Pros: doesnt take much to fill but gets great milleage

Cons: not the hottest car

Built Like A Tank — Its my dads car and but its the car I learned to drive in. It rides like a dream and has effortless steering. It pumps out a decent amount of power for the base engine and is really a nice car to drive on road trips.

Pros: Size and comfort.

Cons: Weight and has some problem areas.

Overall Decent Car, But Not A Bmw... —

The S80 is designed to be Volvo''s answer to BMW's 5 series. When going in for a repair, you may feel like you just paid for a BMW, but the performance just isn't there. To be fair, the turbo option is a major upgrade in performance, but some aspects in handling really need improvement. when going over bumps in a turn, the rear end "floats" a little; kind of disconcerting at speed. Interior is decent, but expect to have to replace the headliner and side trim. center console parts tend to break as well and can set you back a couple hundred dollars for replacement. Rooad noise seems a little excessive for a car of this caliber as well. So far, this doesn't sound like a great car, but it really isn't that bad. The seats are quite comfortable and gas mileage has been around 21mpg on average with about 28mpg on the highway. The stereo system is more than adequate and easy to use while driving. Also, it is definitely the most beautiful Volvo ever made, which thinking about it, is not a hard feat to master - but beautiful nonetheless. Although I would not buy another one, its a decent car that is rated as one of the safest on the planet. If yoou don't mind paying a good price for repairs, its actually a good car and I would recommend it for the business executive or as a good family car.

Pros: legroom, comfortable, beautiful, safe

Cons: expense of repair, lackluster handling, road noise
