Vehicle: 1993 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan

i bought the car super cheap and put a chunk of money in it immediately to be assured that it was good for the long haul. Water pump and timing belt were done along with a host of things that 19 years and 138,000 miles could cause. So far, 2 months and 3,000 miles later, it is still humming along and a great city/ touring car. i hope to update the report in a year with more of the same.

My 850GLT is the 6th car I have owned, and by far the best. I've been driving it for 13 years, and it has never let me down. The body is impeccable, having no rust whatsoever. Find a good Volvo mechanic who doesn't over charge for repairs, and you've got it made with this car. No unusual repairs required, only routine maintenance, with a new timing belt being a bit pricey. Overall, cheap to run.

This car is one of the best values we've ever purchased in a used car. However, after almost 5 years of ownership, I must say that it is bittersweet. The maintenance costs are astronomical! I would estimate over $2,000 per year in maintenance and repairs. It is built like a tank and has the most comfortable seats I have ever experienced. On the highway, we get 27 mpg! (imperial gallon!)

I have to start saying that i have driven many cars some were pretty bad uncomfortable, but this Volvo has been with me for a couple of months it is SO reliable tough, and still feel like it has the power when it first came out. Fun to drive and very comfortable in the inside, all my friends love being driven in it. i wish Volvo can continue making cars as just like this one. only thing i can complain is some parts are a little expensive depending what it is, i would only take it to a mechanic that my step dad knows for years ASE certified, wont trust any mechanic to fix it its like a baby after all these years now just got to fix my A/C and some minor interior damages. BEST CAR! hands down.




Great car

If you take care of them they take care of you. No real issues over 12 year and 160K miles. Change the timing belt, change the oil, if this was done the car will get an easy 200K.

I bought my car from a guy in Everett, used 168k, drove it home kept surging or cutting out turns out the intake tube was really warn and duct taped, it leaked and the air made the car run funny. Later found out the pass cv was bad, pass side motor mount broken, heater core bypassed.... Well after driving it for a while I think its worth fixing everything, even with a salvage title :) I noticed how a lot of people have been sayin the interior rattles, so did mine, come to find out my passenger side motor mount was bad when I got it, cv is going out and the belt squeals once and a while cause it chewed threw the rubber mount, still driving! All the newer model buttons plug and clip in

on the odometer. 1993 was a unique year for the 850 in the US; it was the 850's first year here but it had already been out in Europe for a year; several minor changes were made in 1994. Therefore,...
