Need a Second Job Just to Keep Going

1996 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

As with others, I have foudn this car a disappointment. It works very well, but I need to work two jobs to keep it in good working order. Also, quality of dealer servicing is variant. I had a dealer mess up a belt replacement, which caused engine failure on highway, destroying original engine. I have spent approx. $13K servicing this car since buying it new. I am looking for a new Japanese compact...

Best Features

Very nice ride and engine; sleek, minimalist interior; excellent handling.

Worst Features

Make more reliable. Small things that go wrong really add up (gas door lock stuck; dash lights misfunction; third brake light intermittently works.
