I have S80 2.9 which we bought in 2000 (2000 model year). It has about 15kmiles on it. Recently it has been in dealer's shop longer then on the road for various problems.<BR>Problem 1. Front suspension was making noise when was going over the bumps, dealer replaced bushing for the stabilizer bar, then noise went away.<BR>Problem 2. Got warning that airbag failed, dealer replaced the aibag sense unit. Warning went away<BR>Problem 3. Got warning to shut down engine because it lost coolant. Coolant in expansion tank got 1 millimeter below minimum level. Added half cup coolant, message went away.<BR>Problem 4. While stopping at traffic light brakes failed, car took about 50ft longer to stop, thank god there were no cars coming accross. Got message that brakes failed. Dealer replaced master brake cylinder.<BR>Problem 5. while adjusting tilt on steering wheel, locking plastic handle broke, dealer replaced it.<BR>Problem 6. At sharp turns steering pump was noisy, added ATF to steering fluid tank problem went away.<BR>Even though some of the problems are routine and maintanance related, I was wondering if some other Volvo owners experineced the same problems. Message center is smart, but sometimes is too stupid like in case of coolant it detected but in case of steering fluid it did not. I had a 1985 Volvo 740 GLE before which was still running with 230KMiles when I traded it in for S80, considering the hefty price about $40K for the S80, I thought it will be as reliable as my 85'740 GLE. But it is not. <BR>I was wondering if there are any upcoming problems with S80 that I have not seen yet, because we do not drive it much only 7Kmiles a year. Friend of mine has 2001 S60 2.4T with 20Kmiles, and did not have any problems with it.<BR>Please let me know S80 owners.
