Four years or 50,000 miles. Point: The S80 is a handsome sedan with a solid chassis platform. It feels rock solid and the turbocharged six-cylinder engine is smooth and strong. The special anniversary edition has a rear-seat entertainment system and a cooler built into the center armrest. Counterpoint: The navigation system is more of a toy than a tool, and the audio system uses unique controls that require some time to figure out. SPECIFICATIONS:
