"Please do me a favor and never ever buy a Volvo. I have had an Audi, 2 Jeeps, a BMW, a Saab, a Land Rover and a Mercedes and have never ever had more problems with a car than with this one. Please do not buy one...I spent close to $48,000 on this car and in 2 years will have spent close to $5,000 in repair not including scheduled maintenance."
"Excellent acceleration for a 4 Dr Sedan. It's equal to my wife BMW 335CI Twin Turbo. I own a 2005 S80 T6 for over a year and never had any problems. The car feels very safe when cornered, the sound system is awesome. Gas mileage is comparable to any other car with this type of performance. The seats are very comfortable."
"This car is a great deal. You can get a really nice car that is really powerful (T6), luxurious, and safe for relatively cheap. The only problem is when they break it is a bit expensive. It is also hard to find somebody to work on them."
"Purchased with 12,000 miles & have had all service done by VOLVO and it has been an excellent car for me. I only want to sell this and buy another one while it still has a good book value. Will buy another S80 or theSUV."
"1/31/06 (last day of slowest car sales month) I got the 2002 S80 T6 with just under 33k for $18200. Think it was $43-44k new. Drove a non-turbo and felt powerless but 268hp in the turbo is ample. Downer is not a hugger in curves - upgrade from P-rated to V-rated tires help a ton, but it is FWD. No major mech problems, got all bulbs replaced under warranty. Great safety / seat comfort is A+++ / tall and big folks have tons of room in this sled"
