1996 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Have enjoyed everything about R! Great acceleration, handling good for sedan. Been smacked 3 times by poor drivers....great protection, never close to injury! Safety plus. Seats are best...cannot stand other luxury seats..especially for long trip, replaced radio x'x 3 (all on warranty.) A/C fine for 6 years, then leak in heater coil. Ride harsher than GLT sedan, but wouldn't trade ddue to other features. Love it at 207K miles....hate the "soft" 17 inch wheels, bend...but saved life once so....! Cannot find a replacement with all features I like ...keep it til 300K or 400K.

Favorite Features

Acceleration great, seats absolutely wonderful, can drive for 100's without complaint. A/C good in hot gulf, Feel protected by great safety features. Have liked cruise control...very accurate and adjustable. Fun to drive..comfotable.

Suggested Improvements

Wheels, wheels wheels. Front spoiler "guards" to avoid high curbs. Better cup holders and window controls on door.
