My best Volvo yet by NickPA on 07/06/2006. Trim: 2003 Volvo S80 T6, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Powerful, comfortable, quick, reliable, good fuel economy (I can actually get 30 mpg on the freeway IF (repeat IF) I work at it. It's not a fun way to drive, but I can do it. Normally get 27 mpg on freeway. Volvo safety is well-known. The optional sound system is excellent. Most comfortable seats I've ever sat on. Excellent snow and ice car (I have snow tires). My local dealer is outstanding.
Cons: Transmission is a little sluggish. You can really tell the difference if you use the manual shift feature. Road noise is fairly high on Pennsylvania freeways, but not as bad on some other states' roads! Volvo discontinued their On Call Plus (like On Star) service just last month (June '06), that's really rotten.
Overall review: Bought it new in 2003, and it's my best Volvo yet (I've owned 5 Volvo's so far, each better than the earlier one). There will probably be a new C70 in the family in the next 12 months. Too bad the T6 engine has been done away with. Volvo needs to find a replacement for Volvo on Call Plus...even Chevy has On Star!

The "Tank" without the "Treads" by Aaron on 03/14/2010. Trim: 2003 Volvo S80 2.9, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Everything, not one complaint.
Cons: Nothing, great safe car.
Overall review: My wife drives this car to work everyday, 100 miles round trip. Knowing she is in a Volvo, gives me peace of mind. We bought this S-80 used with a tad over 32 K miles, runs great and NOT one major or minor issue to date. She drove a 99 Gran-Am and that thing was in the shop more than on the road, so what more can I say.

nice ride by euro/american from CA on 11/14/2006. Trim: 2003 Volvo S80 2.9, Owned 3 years.
Pros: we loved that car until it went to the dealer for it's first oil change.they forgot to put on the panel underneat,was dragging on the street 'til my wife pulled over.too many problems,from the a/c to the radio/antenna/trunk lid/had to replace rear disks because Volvo don't allow you to turn them/frontlight bulbs went out 3-4 times/dealer crashed the bumper taking it out to my wife from the shop.i can go on and on but the good news is is mostly the dealer's lousy repairs and it's still under warranty,only 43000miles but i am very scarred when the 50k runs out.A LOT OF $$$ TO REPAIR.tranny is sluggish,mpg is not as sticker said 20-27,never got it over 22.still,one of the best rides ever!!!!
Cons: mpg not as promissed,expensive to keep up,autotransmission could be much/much/much better,handles iffy when wet
Overall review: 9
