1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan

Review

This car is an utter joy to drive and one of the most comfortable cars when it is not in the repair shop. This year alone I've had the rear main seal, ABS controle module and radiator fan go. Very common problems on these cars and Volvo does not stand behind them, especially the brake problems. They claim they have no knowledge of these problems. I have filed a complaint with the National Highway Traffic Safety Association for the brake problems. Repairs are astronomical and relaibility is subpar for a luxury vehicle.

Favorite Features

Seats.

Suggested Improvements

Better manufacturer backing, common problems (and expensive ones) are not backed by Volvo.
