I love my S80.
Before I bought it I shopped and drove 6 other brands.
What 1st attracted me to the car was the great looking interior. It has lots of very high quality leather on the inside with real wood trim. It looks expensive with a more traditional feel vs a metallic and plastic version.
The car is very comfortable to drive with great seats and controls are very well placed. When you shut the door it has a very solid feel. I don't see that many of this model so I feel it's an exclusive brand.
It has many safety and comfort features but the one that gets the most attention is when I park and lock the doors the mirrors fold back.
It has a v6 with front wheel drive. I'm getting 17 + or - MPG in suburban driving and 27 / 28 MPG on the highway.
It's performance exceeds my needs with 134 MPH top speed.
I bought the car new and have a great dealer whose employee's know me by name.
If you are shopping for a car I would add Volvo to your must drive list.

Upon visiting the showroom we were able to locate several vehicles of interest. With none available, we ordered our S80 2008 Volvo to be shipped in from CT. Upon arrival, car is everything we expected and more...more bells and whistles than we expected. We are more than pleased with our Volvo purchased! Thanks for service.

I am a mom of 20 years and was ready to make the jump from my mini-van. This car was a perfect choice. I love the comfort and the power/handling. I bought the V8 with AWD and truly look forward to driving now! Really has the "feel" of a SOLID car.
