1996 Volvo 850 - Consumer Discussions

All Volvo 850 Models

I have an 850(1996 with 63,000 miles) and went to look at the 2001 and 2002 S70 and XC. The salespeople of course said how they great they are. They ride nicely and are safe. Then I checked the Tow...
We own a 1988 740 GLE wagon that has close to 175000 miles on it. It's running fine, but we're looking to get a used (probably off-lease) wagon with more power (and an automatic transmission, as it's ...
Our current 2 Volvo's are a 1992 965 and a 1996 855 TLA. We have had the 1992 for 15 months now and find it a pleasure to drive. It is much heavier than the 850 but is very responsive with it's 6 cy...
During the last two years of the 850's and 960's existence (1996 & 1997), how did they do in terms of overall reliability and durability? I've heard, and do know for a fact, that the 960 was more ...
Hi, i'm looking at several used volvo 850s, from 1993-1996. However, even though i know that Volvo's are reknown for their safety and reliability, i get the feeling that reliability is not that great...
So far we have not had any of these very disappointing and expensive repairs on the three Volvos we have owned, a 1996 850 wgn, a 2004 V70, and a 2007 XC90, all of which were naturally aspirated base ...
To say that DSTC is not needed is wrong. It helps control the vehicle under strong evasive maneuvers on dry pavement as well as wet. My wife made a strong evasive maneuver in her beloved 1996 850 wa...
In the 1996 850 I was told that the "flame arrestor" (in the outgoing line from the crankcase to the throttle body as I recall) was prone to plugging and that this would resulting in pressur...
I'm about to sell my 1996 850 GLT, but the ABS light is on. Is it worth paying the $130 to ship it to the person in So.CA to get it refurbished? Or do I take my chances and try to sell it like it is...
I had the ECU upgraded on our 1996 850 Turbowagon (my wifes car) and it made a huge impact on how the car moves. We were thinking of selling it prior to the upgrade, but now my wife will not even dis...
Currently I am looking for a second Volvo just to go back and forth to college and home on the occasional weekend. I test-drove a 1996 850 wagon at the local Volvo dealership this weekend. It has 138k...
I used to change the oil on on 1996 850 (855) wagon, and I bought the filters and the crushable aluminum drain plug washer from the Volvo dealer. I got out of the habit on my 2004 V70 because this wa...
and so I sold it and my wife bought a base model 850 wagon (Volvo 855) for her and the newly lisenced teenage driver in our household to drive and I took the 91 Spirit. That model year the base trim...
Previous to the 02 XC70, we owned a 1996 850 Turbo. It was a beautiful car and is still on the road today. Nothing major wrong with it, although the new owners do not take care of it properly....
