2001 Volvo S80 2.9 NA from North America
This isn't a Volvo, it's a Ford!
Fuel pump - 100,000 miles.
Tie rod ends.
Front & rear sway bar end links.
Window regulators - Front.
Rear bearing hubs.
3 oxygen sensors.
Now ABS module.
Cost of repairs $6500.
This car is extremely problematic and requires constant maintenance to stay together. I bought this car expecting another Volvo! Not! I have a 1992 Volvo 960 that now has 335,000 miles and has only cost me $125 (PIP Switch) beyond the normal and customary repairs. That's what I expect from a Volvo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You are right to a certain extent. The S80 is a Volvo, yet Ford had their hands on mixing parts & being cheap about it, yet you still pay Volvo's price for these certain parts. The older Volvo's were AWESOME! And of course these newer ones are better than when Ford owned them, I say with any car you plan on purchasing, use this site as a reference, as it may help you with your decision before spending your $$$ on something that is not worth it.
