Default Considering S80 or S60

My 01 Audi A6 2.7T AWD was totaled and I am considering a Volvo..may be a bit cheaper to maintain (I hope). My question is all other things being equal (I'm not worried about interior size, perfromance, speed) which car would you take if you wanted the most reliable car that would cost the least down the road?

01-02 S80
01-02 S60
turbo OK?

I have read here that the Tranny and Computers seem to be the biggest issues in this model year range...what can I look for? Should the tranny have been replaced in these cars to make them a safe buy?

Thanks a bunch (I hope no one gets mad if I also post this in the S60 forum)

I belive in 01 (I have an 00), the S80 was changed to a BMW trans. 99-00 S80s (like mine[:@]) have a GM trans with TONS of problems. As far as being cheap to maintain, no, and i'm sure many people will agree.

I don't know too much about the S60, other than there are a lot more options for it as far as aftermarket support on replacement parts. I can never find anything for my S80.

Wish you the best of luck, sorry about your A6
