Customer Service: 3.0 Overall Facilities: 3.0

They were a little slow in responding to my inquiry at first. The first time I spoke with them I was told the vehicle I was checking on was still in their inventory. I them asked a few questions about the vehicle. The next response from them was that the vehicle had been sold and was not in good condition. Not a very good experience.

i bought this car at a Volvo specialist center in 2012 with 125,000 miles for just 7,998. I was going to use it for a year, due to a short term job in New York, so I didn't really care about what it was. My mom drives a C70 and told me to buy the car. It has been absolutely fantastic, now in 2015 we have 156,000 miles on it and it's still going strong. There have been some expensive maintenance costs (150$-550$ services) and also suspension and axle components (1000$ over the years) but the thing to remember is that it's European and our X5 costs 3 times more to maintain. For such a nice car I'm willing to pay some more. It is important to note that I go to a local Volvo service specialty shop, and NOT A DEALER. Prices are about half what I would pay there, and even more savings for used parts. Also this car is ultra safe, my two kids learned to drive in this car, and this holiday season I plan to give it to my oldest... And of course as a replacement I'll be sure to buy the new XC90. The best thing about this car is the amount of small features that really add up: price, gas mileage (I get 35 on i40 even when the epa says 26, and yes I actually calculated it along with the trip computer), safety, (there are 6 giant airbags and stability control is an option fitted to my car), cold starts (never had a problem in -20 weather, AV/heat( the best ever, I'm never hot or cold for more than a minute, and the seats are so supremely comfortable. And that's all for 8,000$!!!! Be advised: the 2004-2006 models have a stronger reliability record than the 1998-2003 (preface lift model)

Has been great for me!

I've had Volvos for years. The last Volvo I had had 300,000 Miles on it when I sold it for $1,000. I plan on keeping the one I have until it has 300,000 before I sell it.

I bought my volvo 8 years ago. I have fixed this car so many times. Fixed windows not working three time, motor mount broke, throttle body needed cleaning, lights quit working, I owned three different toyota vehicle and put over 150,000 on each and have not had problems like this in any one of them. Would never ever buy another one

Would buy again...

I have a 2004, 2.9L straight-6 (no turbo) Volvo S80 with over 94,000 miles. I am getting about 19mpg city and 26mpg highway; not bad for a 4000lb tank. The seats are EXTREMELY comfortable and the vehicle feels very solid all around. I feel very safe in this car and would not drive anything else because Volvo does not cut corners on safety. They had side airbags STANDARD in 1998, WOW! The American and Japanese automakers cannot touch Volvo's safety record. Knock on wood, I haven't had anything major go wrong with it, just a broken popup cup holder. Like most cars, the Volvos will love you if you give them some love. Maintain them and you shouldn't worry about reliability.

I've had my car since almost new. For the first couple of years, it performed well. It went through routine maintenance. After 100k, problems started happening. In the last 3 months I've spent over $4500 on repairs, from buying a new axle, brakes, brushes, repairing leaks...etc. (remind you this car goes through extensive routine service). The car has a nice title, but it comes with a price. Volvo is not the same Volvo we've all knew growing up. It's a Ford 500 :-(. I really don't want to buy a new car, but I'm being forced to because I refuse to put another dime on fixing it. I'm looking at more practical cars like, honda, acura, toyota, lexus. don't recommend a volvo, new or used.

Very happy even years later

It's unfortunate that these other owners have had a lot of problems. I have had very little problems. My cig lighter will blow every once in a while, but it's when I'm running 2 chargers at the same time so I just keep extra 20 AMP fuses in the car. The drink holders are no the best designs, but overall I have had no serious problems.

The 2004 Volvo 2.5 turbo is an excellent car. It is a 5 cylinder turbocharged engine with a 5 speed automatic transmission fwd. It gets great fuel economy(31-33) hwy-(20 city) and has wonderful go!I could never say anything but great things about this vehicle. If you ever have a chance to own one buy it, you will never regret doing so. Mine is white with camel leather a beautiful combination loaded with options. Buy one if someone will part with it, mine stays in the garage and is pampered to keep it as nice as possible.

This is my 3rd Volvo over the years and I would say this is the best so far. Great design in and out. Enough room for 4 adults . Very comfortable ride. I am thinking about brand new Volvo S80 now. I would say this car car is way underpriced as a used car.

I bought my first Volvo in 2005. It is a white S80. I can't say enough about the car. My previous car was a Lexus ES300, which I loved. But after moving to the suburbs and ommuting on the highway I decided to go for the safest on I could find. The car moves for a almost 4000 lb tank! The ride is quiet an agressive. It handles like a smaller sportier sedan. The best part is that when some cowboy in a goofy truck rides off my bumper he slowly realizes my white tank is not giving way. I have a 17 ft.great white sharks tooth hanging from the rear view mirror, reminding me of speed, unexpected stealth, and power- and that's what you get in the S80!

This is my second Volvo in 14 years. This model has not been as reliable as my previous 850. Failures to date: tumblers falling out of ignition; passenger mirror simply falling off the car; both trunk support struts broken; ventilation malfunctioning (can be repaired for $1,200 per Volvo dealer); windshield washer not functioning properly (repaired once).

Ford engineering has obviously ruined Volvo. My wife preferred the Volvo to a Lexus based on exterior style, but now regrets the decision. The car has major electronic failures about every 4- 6 months and required towing to the dealership twice. Also required the "company" to send someone out for figuring out the repair. We got this car for a reliable vehicle to drive on the road for trips, but I would use my 1986 Subaru GL10 or 1993 Toyota T100 4x4 rather than this Volvo. It was painted white, but should have been yellow to match its lemon qualities. Do not buy this junk or you will regret it!

My 2004 T-6 is the fifth Volvo I have owned in the past 15 years. Previous versions are the 240,760 Turbo, S70, and a 2002 S-80. The 2004 is clearly the best Volvo and the best car I've owned to date. I bought it with 33/k miles and I currently have 82/k on the car. It looks great and handles very well in all the conditions that Minnesota can throw at a car.

After extensive research, we picked the 2004 Volvo S80 cause it seemed reliable and comfortable for my height - 6'6". Only the 2004-2006 models could I fit in. Since we bought the car from dealership, we've had it in for service 5 times and after the last service where they couldnt fix the acclerating problem when braking, we've decided to cut our losses and find another vehicle. Other problems included seat belt squeaking, windshield wiper timer, headlight adjustment, brakes, and more. Disappointed the car turned out to be lemon.

At 79,000 miles this car is on its third transmission. The front struts have broken through nornal driving. It has had two leaks of transmission fluid. The second leak required the radiator to be removed to replace a hose. The interior design makes it very difficult to see traffic behind you. This is our third (and last) Volvo. Repairs this year alone came to over $4000.

I have never owned a volvo or have know anyone to own a volvo. Was working with a dealer and he talked me in to driving one. Wow!! I was hooked from that point on. It drives great looks good and has all the pick up that I need. Had my heart set on a Lexus, but not after driving the Volvo. Love it and will look for another one when I need a car. I have taken it on 2 long trips already and I get over 30 miles to the gallon. If you haven't driven one don't wait. It is very comfortable and I'm not a little guy either.

Having owned many cars in 30 years and many test drives of rentals during business trips I can say that this has been the best car value for me to date. The 2004 2.5T sedan seems to be a good reliable model year. I get 29 MPG average and can't believe the smooth power. Volvo did a perfect job matching the engine and transmission in this model. I have done ALL of my own auto repair and maintenance in past years including engine and transmission rebuilds. Knowing what I know I am very impressed with the build quality and engineering in this vehicle. I am very happy with the comfort, ride quality, climate control, and interior.

The S80 was my second Volvo.What influenced my purchase was the Edmunds information which said the 2004 had 700 enhancements, most of which you could not see. This was the first model year that Volvo replaced the 2.9 6cyl with their famed 2.5T/ 5cyl engine. The recommended fuel is premium but the car's computer consistently shows 25-26 mpg combined city/hwy driving. Almost no perceptible Turbo lag when you press on the gas.This is great considering the car weighs 3,600 lbs.

Sitting in this vehicle is comfortable but Ido not like the center console. It is not convenient to have a cup of coffee while driving. And that mickey mouse pop-up console drives me baty as it doesn't hold anything properly. i also dislike the control for the side view mirrors. Your 1986 model was much more efficient. I hate having to hit the right or left first then adjust. I've had better steering wheel adjustments. Take the 1983 Tyota for instance. I don't really feel I have complete control of this vehicle. It in a way controls me. And I would prefer push button passing gear..like the '91 240for instance. Also there's not enough room for C.D storage nor does it fit properly.

The Volvo S80 is the most comfortable car I have ever driven and that is including virtually all production "luxury cars". The old design 2.9 engine is plenty strong enough for me. If I could change anything it would be to reduce wind noise although it is not bad but not as good as Lexus or S series Mercedes. It has a very solid feel and to this point I have had no problems with this car.

I never owned a Volvo until I bought this for my wife. It quickly found its way into my hands - a deal I could only swing by agreeing to buy her a new XC70 wagon as a replacement. Neither of us can imagine owning any other brand now. This car is perhaps the most complete vehicle one can own. It has just about everything - unsurpassed safety, good performance, acceptable reliability, room, AWD, the most comfortable seats I've ever experienced, and an understated elegance. I have around 8000 miles now and have had no problems. Like other reviewers, I now look for any excuse to drive. Despite Ford's ownership - this is still a Volvo at heart. I absolutely love it.

This is my first Volvo and I doubt I will ever buy from any other manufacturer again.

I have never hated a car quicker. Within the first 100 km the exterior chrome molding has started to come off. Within 200 km the gas pedal does not function properly, one must depress it a full inch before there is any response. This is most annoying, and the dealer tells us that nothing can be done about it, that its just the way Volvo makes them. For the cost, I am exceptionally disappointed in this car. It now has less than 2000 km on it and we are about to trade it in on an Audi. Remember its really no longer a Volvo, its an expensive Ford.

The S80 has matured from a stylish sedan with questionable quality due to its innovative technology to a sexy, stylish and fun-to-drive automobile. Out on a test track where you can open it up, you'll find yourself wondering why you never pursued that racing career.

I choose the S80 because my previous cars have been standard V6 sedans. The S80 is by far the best sedan I have own or driven. Leaving Denver in April, there were 12 inches of snow on the ground but with my DSTC on and working I had no problem with driving or staying on the road (other cars and trucks, even 4x4's slid off the road) and holding a steady speed for road conditions. I made it though the snow storm until the DOT closed I-40 at 7200 feet elevation. The moto "For Life" had nothing to do with my decision to buy but I'm glad I did. The only thing better than owning a Volvo, is having 2 Volvo's. I have the XC90 also.

The car is everything I wanted! It is fun, safe and beautiful. What a ride! The car gets alot of looks and many compliments. It rides smooth and is so comfortable. I just get in it and ride around the block just because it feels so awesome. Volvo's are pure class and I feel I couldn't have picked any better! Treat yourself and go get one and Enjoy what life has to offer!

This is a remarkable car. Outsatnding MPG on the highway (29 @ 80 miles per hour), above 20 in town...very comfortable (a little bit "spartan", though) easy to drive, cruises very nicely, does everything right....it just does not have the "solid" feeling, nor sporty feeling of a BMW or Mercedez. It always gives you the impression the "power is not going to be there...but it is.

I use to own a 2001 S80 and loved that car after putting 60,000 miles on it. After stepping into the 2004 S80, I love this car even more, there have been many changes made since 2001 and all for the better.

The 6 cyl (non-turbo) moves this full- sized car very well. I look for excuses to go for drives (or steal it away from my wife & take it to work!). The trunk is very roomy. The Safety features are and have been one of the primary hallmarks of Volvo – they don’t come much higher rated

S80 2.9 - 2000: This car has been a total headache for our family. The car is always falling apart. Electrical night mare, from lights to locks to sensors. Hub bearings X 5, sunroof falling apart, hub bolts falling out twice while on vacation, broken coils spring, faulty fan motor for radiator, oil flame seal bad, and a bad motor mount. So much for the flagship of Volvo. The S80's market value is poor and still is rated as less than average for the 2004. No wonder the BMW and Mercedes lines are so popular. My first volvo and definitely my last -never, never again. Waltrip Volvo in Nashville area loves to see me, and my checkbook on a regular basis.

Overall this car has been a pleasure to drive, and has made me feel much more comfortable about driving on the road with the fleet of SUV tanks. The inside is comfortable and spacious, and the seats are soft and luxurious. The S80 has a super smooth ride, and handles like a sports car, so I get a good feel for the road. Its lines are sharp and it has a more unique look than other luxury cars. The two biggest problems I have are the acceleration and the side view mirrors. You need to exert too much pressure on the gas pedal to move the car from a stand-stil. The side view mirrors are a joke, they are so small.

The car is a great disappointment. It handles like a truck and steers like a truck. The break and accelerator pedals are dsngerously close together. The brakes are very unreliable. Some of the time they engage near the top and at other times I have to push all the way down before they engage. The dealer tells me that is normal. The dar has the worst power seats I ever had.

My S80 T6 spend the better part of its first 2 months in the shop dealing with a heavy vibration at high speeds and the eventual myriad of resulting rattles. This car did not impress upon me the quality one would expect for $46K. An inept service department and crooked dealer certainly didn't help resolve my ill feelings either. After four months of ownership, I am trading mine in (another reflection of Volvo's quality is reflected in its re- sale value). Watch out! If you are looking for an impressive machine, at least test drive a Saab 9- 5 Aero.

3rd Volvo in 13 years; this one is superior. . With 2 booster seats, the extra rear passenger surpasses all other models in it's class. The ride is extremely smooth, my wife is prone to car sickness, not in the S80 It's nice to drive a lux sedan that has a bit of "individual personality"; doesn't look like all of it's German and Japaneese counterparts with their "generic hi-tech" styling.. Kudos to Volvo for entering the new millenium and exporting their traditional safety and reliabilty to a style and level of comfort that is world class.

This is a great car ! I liked my 2001 model so much that I bought the exact same car, color, and options again in a 2003 model. Cross country trips are a breeze loaded up with the partner and the animals ! Now located in TX, we continue to enjoy this vehicle and will buy another next year. A few changes to the styling would be nice and some more insulation to make it as quiet as a Lexus would be even better. Volvo seats are unbeatable. This one is Volvo # 9 for this family along with many second cars including BMW, MERCEDES, VW, LEXUS, and others.

The S80 is truly an underrated family sedan. For those who look beyond the sometimes biased reviews and the glitz bestowed upon sportier alternatives, one will discover that the S80 rewards its occupants with a comfortable and supple ride. There's power when needed, courtesy of the twin turbo engines, and advance safety features all around, both externally and internally, to provide that extra comfort that in the event you may need it, you're in one of the safest car on the road today.

Great ride, smooth performance, very responsive to breaking and accelaration - superior quality! Owned a 2K S80 which was totalled in a meeting with a power pole (perfect safety performance in the accident with no broken glass and no significant injuires). I immediately came back for the 2004 2.9. Easy to drive, very adequate acceleration at highway speeds.

3 months search ended with Volvo S-80 T6 (option: climate and xenon, no four C available in the area). Volvo was not even in my original list. I was looking at E class, 5 series, A6 (all 2004). Also compare it to 2004 acura tl, saab 95/93. None compare to volvo value (5k below MSRP with factory incentives - thanks Edmunds), comfort (most comfortable seat) and initial quality (check the finish especially around the trunk)

AWD is impressive in untreated snow- covered roads (3"). Able to stop, start, and climb hill without difficulty. Bi-Xenon headlamps are a must for rainy night-time driving. Speed sensitive steering makes parking a breeze. I looked at BMW 5; Lexus ES330 and Audi 6. I feel I made the best choice for price, comfort and convenience items. My passengers are impressed with the comfort (back seat has leg room!) Gas mileage has been 19.4 for many short stops; 27 for highway driving. It's a pleasure to drive with the comfort and engine power.

Never thought I would drive a Volvo. Those old boxy looking cars with underpowered engines. Met up with a Volvo sales rep, he told me about Volvo today. I tried an S80 T6. Always wanted an inline 6 with turbo on a BMW. Now I have 268 HP, inline 6 with twin turbos on a sleek looking Volvo S80 T6. Great power, wonderful handling, excellent build quality, love the car. Compared it to more expensive cars. Great car. Excellent car.

Despite its attractive exterior, the Swedish Volvo S80 is a sensible no- nonsense sedan like the German's used to make. Yesterday my neighbor and I were noting how much more my 2004 S80 is like his old Mercedes than the current Mercedes are, both in the Volvo's sturdiness and high-quality and in its lack of Jaguar-esque friviolity. If Volvo could have completely refrained from its (admitedly minimal) use of fake wood (or any wood) in the interior, the S80 would be the worlds most perfect car.

My first S80 was a 2001 and frankly it did not inspire me to purchase another one. If not for the other two people in my company that didn't want to switch vehicles it would have been a BMW or an Infiniti this time around. This car though has proven to be what the prior Volvo wasn't - solid with good handling and speed. All in all I think this time they got it right.

We purchased our S80 back in January and We are very pleased with its performance and reliability thus far. We had a 1978 volvo 244dl that we drove for 22 years and we sold it with 265,000 miles on it 3 years ago, and every now and then we still see it on the road. So we have nothing negative to say about volvo and will drive them forever, infact we just took delivery of our new volvo XC90, and it's everything they say it is. Thanks Volvo

Every three years I get to change cars through my company car lease program. I've done the Bimmers, Benz, Jags, etc. but this time around the Volvo really caught my eye. I first took a close look at the S80 T6 when I went to turn my Jaguar S-Type back in to the dealership (who also happened to be a Volvo dealer). Once I got the S80 out for a test drive, my mind was made up. Who would have thought that a front- wheel Volvo could be so much fun to drive!!! I've had to put up with a few 'old guy' jokes from friends when I told them I went 'Volvo' but their criticisms usually stop once they come for a ride.

This car is finally what I wanted. I tried the earlier versions, they didn't quite have it. The new S-80 T6 relaly has the power and acceleration needed in this car. They somehow tinkered with the transmission and gave it more life. The interior is very nice, and comfortable. Lumbar supolrt adkjustments are standard (as is thle moon roof, special transmission, and excellent stereo). I'm buying another one this year.

I leased a new S80 a few months ago and I got a better deal than you could imagine! I had an S80 before this one and I leased it for $500 a month but when that came off lease I got a new one for $390. I was considering an Acura RL, Lexus GS and an Audi A6 but none of them compared in value. I found the volvo the most comfortable and I love the T6 engine, although it was not worth $150 more a month.
