Need a Second Job Just to Keep Going
By Joe-Unhappy Owner on
1996 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan
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...
Very nice ride and engine; sleek,
minimalist interior; excellent handling.
Make more reliable. Small things that
go wrong really add up (gas door lock
stuck; dash lights misfunction; third
brake light intermittently works.
