This car just glides if the road is smooth enough. You never get tired of driving this vehicle. Except that the cup holder is weak and parts are expensive, I would drive this vehicle for life time. I have driven a volvo that is a later year model and found that drive is not nearly as smooth. If you want a Volvo, buy an old one (before 2000 models).
2008 Volvo S80
2008 Volvo S80OHRoseman - Ohio04/13/2012
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.
Most comfortable seats

Volvo makes the most comfortable seats in the industry. The interior of this car is very roomy with lots of headroom. Excellent safety rating.
