Do we Keep or Sell !?
Time to Cut This Volvo Loose?
I own a 2001 S80 2.9L and have done my best to keep up with the basic maintenance. Being a 11-year-old car and at 105K miles, it has never left me stranded which is awesome because I’ve owned some pretty crappy cars in the past. Even still, I’m a little paranoid about it breaking down. A few things have straight-up broken ($$$ window regulator thingy) but otherwise I’ve just been paying for maintenance required for an aging car. Approximately $300/month for repairs alone. That’s kind of a lot for me.
So what do you think? Keep or sell?
Bonus! More about the 2001 Volvo S80
In some European countries, the entry level S80 came with a 2.0-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 182 PS (134 kW; 180 bhp) and a T5 badged S80 with the same engine but tuned to 226 PS (166 kW; 223 bhp) with the help of the Mitsubishi TD04-16t high pressure turbo also found in the early S60 T5s. These were sold in countries such as Portugal where larger capacity engines were penalized by heavy taxes.
Minor exterior design changes occurred between 2003 and 2004 versions, notably front grille styling.
