Nice Used Car

1995 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon
Nice dependable car which had some miles on her when purchased. Depending on how well the car is maintained you may have to invest in some costly maintenance. Be sure that you check the shocks/struts, last timing belt change, horn (ours became stuck just as we were picking our daughter up from middle school, she was quite embarassed) and the door hinges. A test drive on a hot day is recommended so that you can put the air-conditioning system through its paces. History of problems. Car is solid, however be prepared for plenty of rattles from the rear compartment/hatch. There are kits available which can help reduce the noise levels. Would still recommend and would buy another.
Comfortable to drive. Easy to change the oil.
The horn contacts; you would think that a company which designs a car that is supposedly one the safest vehicles on the road wouldn't skimp on the horn. Hard to believe that it isn't a recall issue. (Dealer wants 500 bucks to fix it.)
