2011 Volvo S80 review

Date

February 13 2013

Model

Volvo S80

Pros

Very comfortable seats, the best I've experienced. I'm 6' 5" and there's plenty of leg and headroom. Good (but not great) sound system. Great 4 yr. warranty: everything but tires is covered including oil changes, wiper blades, brakes, etc. I have the AWD T6 300hp model. Almost no turbo lag, very quick, good torque.

Cons

Volvo, please get rid of the excessive faux chrome trim -- there's way too much on the car. So far just routine maintenance needed.

Overall

Don't buy a Volvo if you want to turn heads or be part of the Euro car crowd. Conservative styling, but It's a reliable, safe, and very comfortable car.

Pros

Good fuel economy, all the maintenance is paid for by the dealer

Cons

Not for the fast and the furious

Overall

I like when I fill the car up with gas and it tells me that I have 550 miles to empty! That's comforting. Also I have the option with the blind spot cameras. When I'm driving and there is a car in my blind spot a light will come on to warn me.

Pros

GREAT CAR

Cons

NONE

Overall

Bought this car with 17k on it and what a teriffic car this is. V8 AWD goes through just about anything. Great fuel economy, safe, never goes to the dealer except for service, least expensive car I have ever owned. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to buy a BMWor MB. This car is half the price and twice the car. Thanks Volvo.

Volvo S80

Pros

Good handling, comfortable interior, spacious, comfotable suspension, beautiful design

Cons

Horrible transmission

Overall

Although the car looks great, and handles great at moderate speeds, the transmission is horrible. The transmission slips many times a day causing the car to jolt forward with a loud "bang". We have had it serviced three times but the problem still exists (and the car only has 2500 miles on it!). We are at a loss as to what to do. This is the worst car we have ever owned, ever rented, and ever driven in.

Pros

Best value in automobile industry

Cons

Brand recognition

Overall

I have researched many cars in this class to include all the fancy ones from Europe. There is no doubt that MB or BMW are great cars but the hypes drove the price of these cars way too high. Having said that, Volvo may not be the most luxurious nor sporty cars out there, they come with 5 year free maintenance so I won't even talk abut the maintenance or reliability as they are completely free! The Scandinavian designed car is fully functional, safe, luxurious, and dependable enough for anyone's expectation. If you want performance, you probably want to spend a 6 figure car with some sort of horse on the hood. Again, if the pure luxury with V12 engine is what you are after, probably 6 figure too. I guess what I am trying to say is that for my family of 4, this is the logical and best option. My bank account is doing okay, my boys are safe, my wife doesn't hate the car, and the car itself is loaded with just about all necessary options. I saved extra $$$ on the car because of special deal from overseas so I even feel happier about the actual price tag. But it doesn't matter how you compare this car to others, typical US cars will be over $40K and European ones will be over $50K easy. I sure miss the time when most cars were in their $20K range......

Pros

Best all round value on the market

Cons

None

Overall

Great car. I drove every car in it's class and the S80 is by far the best riding and most comfortable car. Oh, it is also a great lookin car. So far my 2011 with AWD drive- 300horse V6 is getting 21 mpg city and 29.5mpg highway and it is only going to get better with more miles. It comes with a 5 year bumper to bumper warranty. You pay for nothing (except tires), everything else is taken care of by Volvo. All that and you are in the safest automobile in the world. PS it loves snow.
