2000 Volvo S80 T6 turbo from North America
Never another Volvo
This car is terrible! From suspension problems to computer problems, stalling in intersections. It has left us stranded numerous times requiring tows. Over heating issues. Power steering problems. Needed a new rack after 65K miles. Blew light bulbs about once a month. Radiator fluid would disappear. All this costing about a grand every time I brought it into the dealer. I had to get rid of it fearing the transmission and turbo would go next.
First let me tell you that this is one of the best riding cars I have ever owned. The seats wear like iron and are very comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I owned this car (S80 T6) for almost 6 years and 90,000 miles. Some minor problems, but that is to be expected on any vehicle. My biggest complaint is with the dealer. They just didn't seem to have any technicians who where competent enough with Turbos to repair them. After 3 return trips for the same problem I decided to just live with the problem. Outside of this one area I was very happy with the car and would buy another.
