Review

Before I ended up staying at home with the kids, I'd been driving a 94 300zx every day. Wow this was a change, but not in a bad way. Performance is on par with a Taurus SHO without the lack of reliability. Not to mention the interior is of MUCH higher quality. I paid right at 4k for this vehicle from a dealer. Why so cheap? There was a vacuum line break that they didn't want to investigate. It allowed unmetered air into the intake that caused the MIL to activate and it would not pass emissions. Found the leak during a test drive and gambled that it would fix the problem. Bought it, fixed the leak, passed with flying colors and the vehicle has not had any problems since.


Best Features

Self-diagnosing, user-friendly OBD-II. Power, safety, handling, and the factory sound system is nothing short of amazing for a 1994.


Worst Features

Can't think of any off the top of my head...sorry!

Review

Very fun to drive. Somewhat rougher
after this many miles and not as quiet
on the road. Excellent performance with
turbo. Very reliable. Normal
maintenance gets expensive at 60,000
and 70,000 intervals with fluids, drive
belts and plugs needing to be replaced
for about $350-450 each time. Light
bulbs on dash sometimes go out and that
cost $90 to replace. Braking is
excellent, styling great and sound
system very good.


Best Features

Performance and acceleration are the most fun with this car. Handling is good. The room in the trunk and back seat is exceptional. No one complains even with three adults in the back.


Worst Features

Ride quality and quietness improve with newer cars. this is about average. Would appreciate a heads up display, but not all cars carry this option.

Review

I've had this car for 10 years and
have enjoyed it the entire time. It
is expensive though to take it in
every 5,000 miles. After abou the 7th
years, things start to go bad on it
and need replacing. For example the
AC compressor and more. I have heard
many complaints though about Volvo
since Ford bought them. Therefore I
would not get another Volvo at this
time. But really enjoyed mine for the
last 10 years. Great power too on the
850 Turbo!


Best Features

Seats, great AC system, Power seat positions, trunk space, fold down seats, gas mileage


Worst Features

Cup holders added, tires less expensive,
