Personally I would never get an early s80. Those cars were prone to major electrical problems due to them being the first cars to have the CAN bus network.

Even worse than electrical problems is the transmission. If you're looking at early 2000's, I'd get an S40. Fun little car, great mpg, don't know of any major issues with them.
