Not a Toyota...but

Vehicle

1996 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon

Review

Definitely less reliable that previous Toyotas, but certainly not bad. Main problems have been replacing all brakes and rotors plus expensive tires every 35K or so. Ignition switch, oxygen sensor, and door stop replaced (tore out weld), A/C recharged once. Some dash rattles started before 60K miles. Power is adequate without turbo. No transmission problems yet (106K).

Best Features

Very comfortable and solid. Exceptional front seats, good CD player sound, interior durable. Oil changes are easy, auto transmission has drain plug.

Worst Features

There is never a good reason for center console window switches! Was fixed in S70/V70.
