1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan

Review

I really love this car when its not in the the repair shop. Fortunately, I have found a tire shop to do my repairs. The volvo dealer repair shops are a major league ripoff. Shim kit 10 dollars online , dealership 120.00 . Rear pads and rotors 600.00 (tire shop 280)The brakes have been my major problem. Somthing is always wrong. When the check engine light comes on be sure to check the master hose , a leak here will create erroneous data on the 02 sensor. I have become used to all the sqeaks , creaks and rattles. Next time I will buy toyota/lexus or honda/acura.

Favorite Features

Great seats still after 7 years. Sturdy windshield

Suggested Improvements

Brakes that work. Dealerships whose service reps are not paid on commission. Interior that does not warp, sqeak rattle and roll. Better gas mileage.
