Enjoying my 850 Turbo-starting to worry
By TomH on

Vehicle

1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

I bought my car 1 year old from the dealer. I had all scheduled maint. done at the dealer. I have been very happy with reliability for the past 5 years. It now has 73K miles and I am having to do some major maint. that is very expensive. New engine mounts (known to go bad), new struts, shocks, brake rotors, radiator, dented rim. Roads are rough around Dallas and I drive it hard, it just seems like a major overhaul. I was going to trade it but decided to do the repairs and hope to keep it for another two years/25K mi.

Favorite Features

Excellent accelleration, great cargo capacity, great for active sporting people.

Suggested Improvements

I cannot think of a thing to change. I guess that is why I am repairing and keeping it. I looked at probably a dozen different makes and models, but kept coming back to Volvo.
