Cheap materials - my last Volvo
By vivolvo on
1994 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan
Mirror controls on the center console
show poor placement My wife puts her
purse on the console, which activates
the mirrors Like dual heat controls.
Enjoy safety features such as anti-
collision light. Fog lights are for
asthetics only - don't improve driving
vision at all. Gear box problems on
three occassions; window wind
deflectors fell off after two years,
along with body side moldings. Cheap
plastic hood latch broke within a year.
Wide door post has significant blind
spot when looking over your shoulder.
Power seat broke at 5-yr mark, required
new cable. I'll never buy another
Dual heat/cooling controls
great trunk access
Where do I start? Relocate mirror
controls to drivers door panel, improve
quality of materials for beverage
holders, hood latch, visors, power seat
cable, side moldings, and wind
deflector fastening. Do away with
trunk-mounted CD changer and design in-
dash CD changer.
