Why would anyone who rated something as being nearly perfect not buy from that manufacturer again?

The Twin Turbo is a 2.8 liter buddy. The naturally aspirated s80 is a 2.9 liter.

I bought my S80 in Sweden and saw the factory, and for people who say that Volvo quality control is bad, think again. If there are bad problems with the car, the dealer will tell the managers at the main factory in Gothenburg and the management will get on to the team of around 6 people whom built the car, and they'll be fired... my S80 is a 2.9L and for people who say it's slow, go to Germany and do 146mph like me. It's quite nice and worth a try. Plus the S80 is more spacious than the 5 Series, Lexus GS and Mercedes E-Class, so what do you think?

Buy Volvo.
