Dan, Have a 2000 S80 t6 got it sept.2012 brought in in Conn. An it really impressed me, So I purchased it an Drove it home to Philadelphia, Pa. An was in love with every aspect of the car. Kept my fuilds full and oil changes and 87octane on gas , In 2014 I started having problems with the front head lights flickering off an on, Then just would'nt come on anymore, almost instantly the car started idling and sputtering for awhile then calmed down and runs but at light jerks and lose power then speeds up back off , Its weird , Everywhere I take it they dont do VOLVOS cant read the codes they say , Take it to the dearler, The dearler wants a lot of money like its a new car almost more than I paid for the car itself . I love it when it runs , But when its a little problem it turns bad fast and hurt your Pockets.
I just purchase a 2000 t6 S80 at the Good Will in San Luis Obispo. It runs great. 3 weeks after I purchase the car the power steering blew a o'ring, so I am repairing it with another o'ring and see if that will take care of it. The vehicle rides great looks good, it has 130,000 but who ever had it took really good care of the car.
I have only had my 2000 S80 Volvo since January 2012. Since I have had it I have only had to have an oil change on it which cost me aroun $50. But one day when it had been cold in the morning I went to lower the passenger side window. I heard what it sounded like a little plastic piece break. I got the window back up. My kids had put it down a couple of time and I thought maybe it is ok. Well yesterday it was nice outside I decided to put the window down. Big mistake! the window fell off of the track. Thank God I had the help of our youth pastor to help me get it back on the track. I put tape on the window so I can't put it down. I have been getting estimates to get it fixed, all of the are around $400 or more. Why is this so expensive to fix?
Purchased a 2000 Volvo S80 used from a friend of a friend. Sharp-looking car with a generally smooth and comfortable ride. Thanks to meticulous maintenance by the previous owner and myself, the car runs relatively well. Have however experienced problems with exterior trim pieces (side markers, moldings, weather stripping, gas door) breaking or coming loose. These have been generally simple repairs involving super-glue and magnets for the gas door. The bulgy shape of the exterior makes it an especially easy target for dings. I park in a tight parking lot every weekday and you can certainly tell looking at the doors. Despite flushing the transmission religiously every 30,000 miles, occasionally the car will vibrate upshifting from 2nd to 3rd gear and downshifts can also be rough. I've read that this issue is not uncommon when reaching 100,000+ miles. Interior and exterior bulbs fail frequently as they are on constantly. The need to replace ball joints, wheel bearings, etc. every 18-24 months is most likely due more to rough New England roads than the car itself. Fuel economy is decent for a 6 cylinder averaging 27.9 MPG (average speed is around 48MPH in moderately hilly terrain). Commuting more than an hour each way to work, I spend a great deal of time in my car and rack up almost 500 miles/week. That being said I have been very satisfied with my S80. I hope to take the car to 300,000 miles and beyond. When the time comes to replace, or pass on, this S80, I certainly plan to buy another Volvo.
I will never own another S80. Quicksand.
