1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan

Review

Major advantage: comfort, most comfortable car I've ever owned. Gasoline mileage respectable - 25 mpg. Major drawback: maintenance costs - cost $4800 in the 4 yrs I owned it, and was facing as much for this year. Started to use oil, 1 qt per 3M miles. Wind-dam too low, knocked it off several times on low concrete barriers (difficult repair). Nonsensible design: headlight wipers, but no rear window wiper? Why?

Solidity

Suggested Improvements

Wind dam: too low; other cars don't seem to have its problem. Wipers on headlights? C'mon. Need wipers on rear window.
