Common Repairs on the 2nd Generation Volvo S80

The second generation S80 by Volvo is a luxury sedan built from 2006 to the present day by the Swedish automaker. Volvo’s brand is synonymous with safety and dependability and the S80 is no exception. These vehicles come standard with several safety monitoring systems including the City System that automatically applies the brakes in the event of a collision and the Automatic Blind Spot monitoring system. As technologically advanced as these vehicles are, many drivers still have the following issues:

Electrical System Malfunctions: For some 2nd generation Volvo S80 owners, an electrical malfunction in the vehicle’s central computer may suddenly cause the fuel pump to shut down. A recall has been issued for the problem.

Engine Cooling Problem: A programming issue in the vehicle’s software may cause diminished air conditioning performance for S80 Volvo drivers.

Leaking Windshield Wiper Reservoir: Consistent leaking from the windshield wiper reservoir has some 2nd generation Volvo S80 owners refilling the reservoir over and over again.

Squeaking Suspension: Many S80 Volvo drivers have noticed a squeaking or rumbling sensation from the rear suspension of their vehicles.

Seat Heater Problems: Difficulty regulating the amount of heat produced by the seat warmers on both the driver and passenger sides are an inconvenience for many 2nd generation Volvo S80 owners.
