Question about 2000 Volvo S80

1 Answer

Looking at buying a 2000 s80 T6 and have a question...

I am looking to buy the above car. It would be from a private seller. I am going to have it looked at. It did one thing that concerned me and I am impatient. While turning around in it, it turned off. The guy selling it had to put it in neutral and restart it. He said it happened once before the last weak. He said it had something to do with the remote starter. What do you guys think? Jennifer

    My husband said they had been going for 30 sec. I was going to have it put on a computer to have it checked because they have already been honest that the CEL is on and took money off to get it fixed. Does anyone know how much that usually cost and if that would also tell us why it shut off?

Once the car is running and moving, the remote starter system is basically not an issue at this point. If there was a problem where immediatley when you put it into drive the car shut off, or something of those lines, i could see a remote start possibly being a cause. But if you were driving it, and went to turn around, and the car quit, i would not be suspecting a remote start system to be the cause.

I am going to buy a Honda Accord V6 40 Luxury 2003 model from a private seller and I was wondering what are some problems I should look out for just in case. Especially because they are selling it to me...


BEFORE buying car, ask seller if you can have an independent shop do a "pre sale inspection". If seller says NO, then pass on it. Hondas are good cars, but when sold cheap - I suspect problems. If seller says yes, then have a competent shop inspect it. It might cost a few $$ for inspection but it's cheap insurance.
