Well guys after my BMW debacle, Iím back! I kept/keep my current S80 as my DD and through the years Iíve tried to keep it up and Iíve done my best but all along Iíve known that my current S80 wasnít what it should be. Reliable as the dickens but it just went down over the years somehow even though I was on TOP of all maintenance.
I found what imo is a fantastic one owner and garage kept 04 S80 that the owner was anal about maintenance and care coming from ONLY the Volvo dealer. The only reason the PO let it go was because she had a slight bump on the passenger side which unseated the bumper a bit and she bought her a new S90 to replace it.
The car has high miles (258k) but Iíve never EVER ridden in a Volvo as tight as this car. Not a squeak or rattle to speak of at ALL! She even has receipts of the timing belt replacements, headlight wiper blade replacements, and even the alarm module being replaced by the dealer. That impressed me to no end because that alarm module is crazy expensive to pay out of pocket at the dealer...this thing even has Volvo windshield wipers on it. She was fanatical about having the dealer do all maintenance on it even at its advanced mileage.
The suspension is the tightest Iíve EVER experienced in ANY car that Iíve ever ridden in INCLUDING my former BMW 550i X-Drive. No rattles what so EVER!! Ive fallen in love with Volvo all over again! The car is optioned EXACTLY the same as my current one but it doesnít have the ****ty repaint that my current car had lol.
Iíll be fixing the flaws with the bumper ASAP but Iím just super impressed with how a STRICTLY highway mileage car compares to my 171k city driven car. This car is absolutely FANTASTIC!! IMG_1173.jpgIMG_1175.jpgIMG_1176.jpgIMG_1195.jpg
Btw the leather is in fantastic shape! Iím conditioning it now but will post pics when Iím done.
