Summary:

Love it

Faults:

The only problem I have had with this car, is my links (rear and front) have to be replaced often, but at $30 apiece, I don't mind.

My seat tore last week, but that only cost $100.00 to repair.

General Comments:

I love my Volvos, because they ride really nice and are very quick.

We own three Volvos with over 300,000kms, and all work great.

Engine light always on, I ignored it after a while.

Drivers and passenger side window gets stuck or slow to go up.

The gas fill door broke off.

General Comments:

I loved this car, it's got the most comfortable seats ever.

It's a little expensive to repair when things go wrong.

The handling is okay.

Summary:

The car is a lemon

Faults:

Power locks failed.

Moon roof was stuck (open of course).

Transmission failed.

Signal switch inside steering column failed.

General Comments:

I've owned this car for 2 years and it's a financial disaster. Never ever ever buy this model and make. Besides having just about every problem under the sun go wrong, Volvo dealerships are absolutely no help in fixing the problems.

I paid $1000 bucks to get a switch fixed so my blinkers would work. They wanted another $700 to fix the power locks. I told them I would use my keys.

They want upwards of $4000 to fix the transmission, which I won't give them.

The moon roof got stuck open, so I wound up ripping apart the ceiling panel and tearing the motor out. Once unplugged, it worked again. (They quoted me another $1000 to fix it.)

Every electrical problem you can imagine keeps going wrong. It's an absolute lemon.

I've had the same problems. Moonroof stuck open. Power locks don't work anymore. Both front windows do not work and have been fixed twice each (at $500 a pop).

The car drives great, but the electrical system is a NIGHTMARE.

None.

General Comments:

I am 18 years old, and bought my 2000 Volvo S80 T6 in 2006 after my 16th birthday. I have not had a single problem with the car and it is a joy to drive!! Several other friends of mine also drive Volvo, and have not had a single problem.

This car is very comfortable. If you're looking to buy any Volvo - look no further!!

Summary:

It is good enough to turn over to my 16 yr. old son!

Faults:

Mostly front end issues with; rocker arms, stabilizer links, steering stops, control arm bushings.

The moon roof rattled but never leaked. Finally the service manager said we will fix it. It is not right.

General Comments:

I always felt safe in it, but I felt like I was driving in a rattle trap, especially when it was cold out.

Summary:

Good car. Requires monthly advising

Faults:

My Volvo has 108,000.

ABS module died (all check engine lamps light). Victor Rocha (find him on Google) fixed that for just $130.

Struts replaced. Bought front pair (brand new Volvo) in Internet just for $100. No more problems.

General Comments:

This car requires some advising. I recommend to advise this car every month (better if you have a mechanic, who can do that). If you have a mechanic, who can fix this car, just make sure that he is a professional in European cars, otherwise he can make a serious damage. Don't save $100 on a mechanic, if you're not sure about him, because you can loose $1000 on a professional repair.
