Great car - solid, trouble free, good looking, sub-standard gas mileage. by Nick from Des Moines, IA on 06/12/2011. Trim: 2007 Volvo S80 3.2, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Smooth, quiet, comfortable, and rattle free (solid)
Cons: performance is adequate, slight engine noise (drone @cruise speeds - 2400rpm @72mph), gas mileage (only 21 city and 25 highway)
Overall review: I bought this car used with 64,000 miles. It is a great looking car that is extremely well built. Much more solid than the 2005 Audi A6 I previously owned (that car had more rattles than a 10 year old Yugo). Seats are extremely comfortable, however the natural tanning process they use is not resistant to normal conditioners and cleaners (I cleaned the dirty drivers seat and it removed some of the tanned leather on the right side of the seat bottom bolster). The gas mileage is very poor as compared to other manufacturers V6's in the 3.2l-3.5l variety. My Audi A6 Quattro got about 27-28mpg on the highway and this car only gets about 25-26mpg and it is only FWD and less powerful. I also had a larger displacement Saturn Aura (3.5l v6) and Chevy Impala (same motor) and they both got about 29mpg on the highway. I am disappointed that the S80 does so poorly. However, the positives outweigh the few negatives and I would highly recommend this vehicle.
