Excellent car period, but for the mileage, great..

by from on September 18, 2017

It is a Volvo, and I have had five. An excellent car to drive. The best highway car to drive. Built for safety, speed, and an all-around FUN car as well.

Best 4WD sedan for the money

by from Rockford, IL on August 26, 2017

Hands down the best, most luxiourious, and most reliable used 4WD sedan you can buy. I would not have found this vehicle without Cars.com and the reviews sealed the deal on my purchase.

I bought this car with 28k miles and now it has 72k. The car has been extremely reliable and has never had any mechanical issues since I've owned it. The interior is very comfortable for a 2007 car and the sound system is superb. With the v8 engine, the car can hold its own and is very quick off the line for a 4000lb sedan. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for a "sleeper" sedan that still can be used to drive 4+ hours comfortably.

I've had a mixed experience with this car. I bought it used with around 116k miles so I've certainly had a few issues which is why I give average reliability. The car itself met all the other requirements I had for it though. I have the V8 and it gets decent mileage for being a heavy AWD car (~18 mpg mixed). The acceleration and sound it makes are great. It rides a little rougher than I'd like but I think that falls on the cheap tires the previous owner put on it. The interior is a great place to be as well. The seats are comfortable and are both heated and cooled in the front. I really like the floating center console and the gauge design. The controls are simple and well laid out. Trunk space is good enough for me and I've had no complaints about rear seat room. Overall it's a good car but I wouldn't recommend the V8 to a non car savvy friend.

Fast, Fun and Stylish

by from West Hartford, CT on June 25, 2017

Best car I have ever owned, by far. I have owned GM, Ford, Hondas and Toyotas. For Volvos, I have owned a 122S, 144, 245, 265 and currently own an ES1800 and the S80. Love Volvos but the S80 flies ...
Best car I have ever owned, by far. I have owned GM, Ford, Hondas and Toyotas. For Volvos, I have owned a 122S, 144, 245, 265 and currently own an ES1800 and the S80. Love Volvos but the S80 flies and with great comfort. Took it to Montreal (from CT) and greatly enjoyed driving it because it is stable and competent on highways.

Bought this car to replace my aging volvo 960 wagon that has close to 300k on the clock. I wanted something spacious, fast, and comfortable for daily commute and travel. I would not change a thing about this car, the v8 sounds awesome, the seats just let you melt into them and the swedish design cannot be beat! hope to drive this one way past 300k as well :).

I've owned this S-80 since 2010 and it still amazes. This car was ahead of its time with adaptive cruise, auto braking and collision avoidance, blind spot monitor, adaptive chassis and more. The AWD and V-8 makes a great pair. Air cooled and heated leather seats makes you feel like you are in your living room easy chair listening to the surround sound.

Best Car Ever!

I have a 2007 Volvo S80 3.2L. My parents purchased this car when I was in High School, and it was my mother's daily driver. She commutes over 50 miles a day, and the car did very well for her. When I graduated, I bought the car from them because I did not want to take my Tahoe to college (Gas is too expensive to take that boat to school!). I absolutely log this car. My mother owns an automotive repair shop, and I have driven many different vehicles, but this Volvo is defiantly my favorite. It drives extremely well, and it defiantly has enough power for my needs. It is the most comfortable car I have sat in, and I am completely happy with it. A lot of people talk about the cost of owning a European car in these reviews. German cars are especially expensive to work on, but what many people forget is the fact that this car is Swedish. From my experiences, (This car has over 100,000 miles on it), it has not been very expensive to maintain or repair. The labor is not to bad and the parts are not nearly as expensive as a VW or a BMW. Overall this is probable the best car on the road, and I will defiantly buy another Volvo when the time comes!

Love our 2007 S80 V8!

by from iowa City, IA on November 23, 2013

This is the seventh Volvo we have owned, and our first sedan. All the others were wagons, from the 850 Turbo to the V70 and four XC70s, including the 20008 base we have now. The S80 is such a fantastic car to drive, with very good road manners and power to spare. We've always been impressed with the Volvo quality, and it shows in the S80, as well. We bought the 2007 V8 a year ago with 56,000 miles, and we've put another 12,000 on it. It's required only routine maintenance. We look forward to having it a good many years. Bravo, Volvo!

I was worried about buying a car with a V8 engine with the current gas prices but I have no regrets now. We just returned from a 600 mile road trip driving 65-70 mph and averaged over 27 mpg! That's pretty good for a 311 hp motor. The car is sooo comfortable and quiet. It has a fantastic sound system and the V8 has more power than I have ever experienced in a luxury car. I have owned many Volvos over the years and I think this may end up being the best ever.
