2007 Volvo S80 AWD V8 from North America
Everything I wanted out of a Dad car!
Needed a new battery; granted the battery that was in it was a Volvo battery from 2009.
The car was built in November of 2006, and made it to U.S. shores from Sweden on 12/12/2006. Sold to its first owner on 2/23/2007. I am the second owner.
The car has been great so far. I have put about 5K miles on it; picked it up with a hair over 90K miles. Decided on the S80 V8 after researching a reliable and safe car that was still going to be somewhat fun to drive. My S80 V8 has all options except Nav and Dynaudio, so I cannot comment on those. The 4C adaptive suspension and safety features like frontal collision and BLIS work great, especially for a car made in 2007. The tech is just as good as my wife's 2013 Subaru Outback Eyesight system. And the adaptive cruise is also excellent.
Don't ask me about mileage. I put in premium and I drive it in a spirited manner. I have fun :)
Not one issue yet. I'm sure spark plugs will be the next coming service, but I still have 20-30K miles before I do those. I was pleasantly surprised by the S80 and plan to keep it for at least 5 years. If anything goes wrong I will update this review.
Find a good one, and keep it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Don't worry my friend, as most Volvos go you'll be wishing you bought something else as the electrical systems and suspension take a nosedive as the car ages.
On a positive note that Yamaha built V8 will be singing beautifully while the rest of the car falls apart around it.
