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.
2007 Volvo S80G - Indianapolis10/01/2009
I researched and drove cars for the past year leading up to my purchase. Finally I landed on the 2007 Volvo S80 which just received a model refresh . Dollar for dollar, the volvo is a great value in the luxury car segment. Smooth, powerful, comfortable, and nice lines. Mine has the upgraded sound system which sounds phenomenal. I was concerned about the gas mileage, based on some lower estimates I had read, but have been getting an average of 28 MPG with both highway and around town driving...not to bad.
