#1788 of 2415 buying S80 2001 - first time volvo owner
Jan 21, 2005 (10:58 pm)
After looking at the BMW 5, Mercedes e320 and Audi A6, I've decided on the S80 Volvo for a luxury sedan. I am due to pick up a 2001 moondust exterior with leather tan interior from a luxury used car dealership. They are asking 15,900 for this car. It has 47k miles on it, good condition recently sold at an Volvo finance auction. Is this a good price for this vehicle? The manf warranty is good til Aug of this year. I want to buy an extended warranty for this also. He is quoting me 1600 for 4 year or 45k miles. Zero deductible. Does this sound reasonable? anything I should be aware of? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

While you are waiting for some feedback here, you might also try asking in our Real-World Trade-In Values discussion. There is a dealer named Terry there (rroyce10 is his screen name) who will give you his straightforward assessment as long as you provide him all the information that is itemized in red just above the post box.
Hope it works out for you - let us know!

I am not an expert in the used car market, but $1600 for the extended warranty sounds very good. I have paid $2265 for the similar terms (though I do not know what is covered by your policy) 49,950 miles.

Is this VIP warranty? Also, you might consider $100 deductible. I don't think 'zero' is ever the best value for an EW.

Is this VIP warranty? T-6 or 2.9? Also, you might consider $100 deductible. I don't think 'zero' is ever the best value for an EW.

The front end looks like a BMW or a Pontiac.

You can not tell really. It has a plastic cover over the grill. Remember, this is a spy photo. You can only see the overall proportions.
It looks that the roof line is more rounded, like the new S40.

Let's hope it's the disguise. If this car ends up looking anything like a Grand Am or Grand Prix, I'm buying a close-out '06.

I'm thinking that's just not a photo of the S80 at all. But I guess only time will tell.
In regards to any spy photo when the car is so heavily desguised, how the heck does the photographer know what it is anyway?
