1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Wagon

Review

Excellent value, bought privately two years ago, holding value very well....some dealers can really hose you, had real RIP-OFF experience with one, absolutely excellent with another. Any problems are well known, easily fixed, and non-recurring, Eg: ABS/TRACs light on is simple $45 electrical ignition switch fix, air pump should be $200 fix IF dealer replaces air check valve. Basic parts are available over internet from ipd and others at 30- 60% off of Volvo Dealer prices. Currently 120K miles, feels strong and smooth.

Favorite Features

Everything inside well thought out, easy access on regular maintenance items. Very well engineered.

Suggested Improvements

Will consider a shock upgrade when needed, bit harsh on rough roads.
