Overall a pretty good car.

Review
I rather like my 850. It's fun to drive, and I like smoking those Civic drivers who act like they've got a V8 under their hood. The 850 handles well for such a big and heavy vehicle, acceleration is nice thanks to the turbo, and it even gets respectable mileage if you're easy on the gas. Some of the controls are in awkward positions, but you get used to it. Interior quality could be better, though. The only real complaint is that this car has lots of system hiccups. The engine and transmission are sturdy, but some other systems (AC in particular) and parts are unreliable, and are very expensive to fix when they break. Overall, not a bad ride. Take care of it and it will run forever.
Favorite Features
Turbo L5 engine rocks! Nice handling. Comfy ride and roomy interior. Great visibility. Built like a tank, but doesn't drive like one.
Suggested Improvements
Better interior build quality. The plastic trim is extremely flimsy. General quality control and software improvements; some systems are finicky. Really, really should have gotten 5 speed transmission. It needs it.
