The Volvo S-80 T-6 is a fun and powerful car to drive. Unfortunately, it is prone to electronical problems that even the Volvo experts cannot fix. On our S-80 the back doors lock on their own - after unlocking with the remote, the car waits about 2 seconds and relocks itself. This is tricky timing when trying to load children into the back seats. Also, the computer insists there is a problem and continues to give us messages that say so - no matter how much money or time we invest in reparing this, we've been very unlucky. It's too bad because this really is a beautiful and fun car.

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.
