An excellent car for me
By smoothington on
1994 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon
I've had many new Japanese and
American (Acura, Nissan, Dodges, Ford,
Chevy) cars before and sold them after
a few years. This is my first European
car and I plan to keep as long as it
runs. I thought it wouldn't be as
reliable as my Acura or Nissan. I've
had it for 3 yrs and 55k miles and has
120k miles on it. It's much more
reliable than I anticipated. I treat
my cars very well and didn't buy
without finding one with all
maintenance records. I replaced 02
sensors at 75k and turbo hose. Only
routine maintenance otherwise.
Turbo thrills, attention to detail,
excellent radio, solid, comfortable,
sure handling, smooth power delivery,
excellent transmission for sporty
driving, reliable. Very roomy cargo
space and headroom.
Tire noise and wind noise at speed.
Steering is overboosted. Chin spoiler
is badly designed; watch out for curbs!
