My friend brags so much about his 09 Volvo and he knows I'm ready to buy a new car, so told me I should buy an S80. Today we went to Delaware to play slots, and he wanted me to experience the s80.
The car looks great, it is quiet, the interior is wonderful, love how the navigation pops up, this is a balanced vehicle.
However, this car does not ride soft like a Towncar.
The suspension is a big turn off to me, it is a controlled hard ride, a rough rider.
I do not understand how Volvo can present this beautiful flagship to the American public with that hard suspension.
If only Volvo made this car with the option of soft suspension, I would buy one, but as it now stands, I just cannot purchase a beautiful rough rider. Ted.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Though I accept this point of view, I bet the Volvo is much more fun to drive than the Town Car. Show them the bends (admittedly more here in the UK, than US!) and the Volvo will lead the way! The S80 is otherwise a fantastic vehicle...

How many minutes you drove the S80? If it had softer suspension you would buy one, and still based on your test you give it a 0/10!!!
