Do not walk, but run from this monument of unreliability as if your life depended on it. You can get some great deals on used S80's for the very reason that unreliable equates with undesirable. If you've grown accustomed to trouble-free Toyota motoring, trust me that you are completely unprepared to deal with this service shop queen. On the positive side, you will have the opportunity to spend lots of quality time with service personnel at your local Volvo dealer, and might develop a close and abiding relationship in the process. My '99 S80 T6 chaulked up over $12,000 in warranty bills, and the first repair order out of warranty totaled $5,500.00. Is my example "unusual"? Not if you go by the experience of Consumer Reports readers owning the same jewel, or do soem reading of consumer reviews on the net. Ask the man who owns one. If you send me your e-mail, I'd be happy to e-mail you a copy of the stellar service log from my car. I'd also be thrilled to offer a great deal on a slightly used, and extensively rebuilt T6.
