What should I look for in a used Volvo S80 saloon?

There are some known issues with the S80.

The front tyres can wear at a greater rate than expected and phantom electrical issues can cause multiple warning lights on the dashboard, without any problems actually existing.

The timing belts, pulleys and tensioners on the diesel engines all need work around 60,000 miles or four years, so check when the work was previously carried out.

The S80 has been hit with a huge number of recalls, so contact a franchised dealer to make sure all relevant work has been carried out.
