Most reliable car I've owned.

Drove this car up to 220k miles and it still has tons of life in it. Safe, sturdy, reliable! Never broke down, never had an engine light. This car is rock solid!


Good handling and fun to drive.

Very good handling ,also with awd that's great for bad weather. Fun to drive and so far very reliable transportation. One owner took very good care of ir


Pretty good car

It's a pretty good car. It's pretty easy to tune. It's fun to drive as well. And the all wheel drive is killer.


Great Value & Reliable

All in all, the S-80 is a great car for the price. I find the exterior design very attractive and the interior roomy and comfortable. It handles well and is fun to drives. Most important, it is a safe reliable car. I only wish I bought it with the upgraded stereo.



Just purchased a 2005 volvo s80, the car is fantastic, great look great interior, the car rides very smooth. I did alot of looking into other vehicles bmw audi a6 mercedes e class 2004 and 2005s but for the price for this car you cant beat it, esp if you get one cert pre-owned. i would highly recommend this car.


safe and fun

wow, I love my S80. much more room than my last BMW. I really like the quality of the interior leather and the workmanship in all aspects of this car.


My Volvo is really for life

Having hurt my back playing rugby many years ago, any car's most essential quality for me is the comfort of the driving postion. I purchased a Volvo S80 D5 Se Lux a month ago and it is a dream. The external colour (cedar green) and internal colour ( beige leather) have led people to say..What a beauty! Wow! Have you won the lottery? etc etc The driver's seat (heated upholstered leather)is the most comfortable I have ever driven with multiple controls to alter angles, depth and distance. The performance is amazing and the mpg averages 42. Great figures for such a big car! There is an abundance of "toys", and the stereo is a great sound. The Sat Nav is spot on and there are too many nick-nacks to mention.
