Volvo has recalled the throttle body on this car and if you are buying this second hand I recomend you don 't buy one the parts are absurdly priced the dealer with wring out your wallet with ease and the car does some strange things like the air conditioner turns on when you aren't even in the car it has numerous electrical problems it does get pretty good mpg but it costs about 75 bucks just to change your oil by yourself just plain easy thing to say is don't buy a newer volvo second hand

Great car!

by from Frisco tx on August 28, 2012

Had only Volvos so far, not the sexiest, but they are great to drive, comfortable and reliable! I am a Volvo fan for life.

What a car

by from Orlando on August 15, 2015

The comfort is beyond any american car, my 10 year old son, says its like sitting on a marshmallow flying on a space-ship. - well, I wouldn't give it that much but it is very comfortable. The pick-up ...
The comfort is beyond any american car, my 10 year old son, says its like sitting on a marshmallow flying on a space-ship. - well, I wouldn't give it that much but it is very comfortable. The pick-up is nice but not over the top. The engineering is very evident in design. - you will have to get used to the querks, like valet switch that looks the trunk and glove box, it looks like a trunk release.all controls are easily at your finger tips and rides very quiet. - Ive owned 13 cars - from American, Japanese, and italian, but Im sold on the volvo. its better than the 5 serious BMW without the "look at me" flash.

Calling out earlier reviewer!

The AC does not come on with this vehicle while sitting. The cabin air sensor detects when the cabin air gets too hot, and it circulates air from the outside to cool the cabin air. This is an awesome ...
The AC does not come on with this vehicle while sitting. The cabin air sensor detects when the cabin air gets too hot, and it circulates air from the outside to cool the cabin air. This is an awesome feature on a great car. This year is a great German engineering car, well worth the $ that it can be found for, don't let the guy that doesn't know about the car turn you off.

A Wonderful Volvo

by from Cleveland, Ohio on November 20, 2010

This car has been very reliable for it's earlier years, but once it has reached 90000 it started to rattle, squeak, and make noise. It also has lost a ton of retail value.

used purchase in 2014.

I bought a used 2002 S80 in July 2014 with then 115,000 miles on it. mine is the 2.9 straight six which I highly recommend but not for gas economy. lots of torque steer pulls to the right. this is FWD but not really done right - far too much torque steer that is my main complaint. great highway car / long wheelbase. large trunk and huge gas tank 21 gallons! now at 126,000 I don't drive that much really. strong recommendation. have owned 2 previous Volvo and recommend them over Audi or BMW.
