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.

I bought the volvo s80 because of the reviews I had seen on the volvo website and consumer reports. Because a new one is so expensive a used one was just fine with me. It has all the features I wanted, is comfortable handles excellent. I am thrilled it is made of metal and not fiberglass all around. That is really important for me for safety. The only downside I can say is the gas mileage is not that great, but it is a heaver car so not that big of a deal. Would I recommend it to someone else. Yes
Great car, great value

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.
