1999 Volvo S80Recent convert to Honda - North Carolina06/02/2007
I had heard how great VOLVOs were, for their quality and safety...so I bought a used one in late 2004 that only had 28,000 miles. I was warned that repairs could be more expensive than other cars, but I figured with Volvo being known for quality, there would not be as many repairs and it would all average out over the life of the car. In the 2.5 years that I owned it, I had to replace the transmission, water pump, the locking mechanism on one of the doors, and the radio/CD player...just to name a few.
Don't buy one unless you have alot of extra money and you do not mind being inconvenienced by taking it in for the frequent repairs.
Great car, great value
2008 Volvo S80Chris - North Carolina07/24/2012
Purchased this vehicle June of 2012. 2008 Volvo S80 T6. This is a great car! Very comfortable, nice styling, very comfortable ride, and plenty of power thanks to the turbocharged inline 6! I would say that one of the highlights of this car is the comfort. The seats are very comfortable, and it has front and rear heated seats. The car received excellent safety ratings as well. This car is a great compromise between performance, and practicality.
