Wow! I've owned that car for over a month, and besides an oxygen sensor and a tune-up, she hasn't cost me a penny. Well, since she's 12 years old, normal wear and tear is visible - those leather seats seem to tear apart in all 10+ years old 850s. And the tailgate struts have to be replaced, but that's stuff that even a tool-challenged person like me can handle. They have made a car whose mechanical components are built to withstand the passage of time! Excellent buy for whoever needs a reliable used car, for below $4000.
Independent temperature controls (driver/passenger), and the electric moonroof!
Odometer seems to stop working after about 10 years on almost every Volvo 850!
