Solid but quirky

1996 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon

Review

I bought this car used in 2004 and still own it today. It still avgs about 20-22 mpg combined, and drives nicely. The car is as solid as a tank, but it has some of the quirkiest problems. The "idiot" lights for abs, traction control, SRS and check engine cycle on and off randomly, and there's nothing wrong with any of these items. The driver's door makes a banging sound when I open it, and currently my horn is stuck and "blowing", so I had to physically disconnect it until I can have it repaired. Enjoy the ride, if you can live with the quirks.

Favorite Features

The leather seats, very comfortable. As heavy as it is, driving in the rain is great.

Suggested Improvements

too late for this, they've probably made them
