1993 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan


got this car in 2000 with just under 100,000 miles on it and now has just under 200,000, engine runs perfectly, has never burned any oil, catalytic converter got plugged up and car overheated burning out the ignition coil but was a cheap fix,no major problems or fixes other than that, car is extremely safe, hit a garage at 30 mph and the garage was pushed back a foot off the foundation without a single scratch or dent to the front of the car, also rear ended a semi truck and ended up with only a small crack in the front bumper but that was it and then about a year ago was trapped in the middle of a pileup and was rear ended and hit the car in front of me and there was no physical or mechanical damage.

Best Features

the sport mode on the transmission...cars rpms rev a lot higher and it has some pretty quick pick up..the seats are extremely comfortable and theres a lot of room in the back to comfortably seat 3 adults..quality sound system..feel extremely safe in car at high speeds. no major problems..still runs great

Worst Features

cup holders definitely...better positioning of side mirror controls and window controls...car gets stuck in winter mode and starts off in 3rd gear and is a pain but i learned if you just turn it off and turn it back on it generally goes away, other than that its a great car
