Sorry I bought it

1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan
Review
The 1996 850 has been a mechanical nightmare for me. Rear Main seals, alternator, A/C problems, blower motor, radiator fan, cooling leaks, engine mounts, ABS module failure, bad antenna, leaky sunroof, peeling paint. I bought this car due to Volvo's legenday durability and high resale. Today, the car isn't worth squat on trade and needs about $2k worth of further reapirs to return it back to normal.
Favorite Features
Seats are the most comfortable of any car I've owned. I feel safe driving it (other than ABS problems).
Suggested Improvements
Engineering nightmare, parts are expensive and the car is difficult to service. It has been less reelaible than any other car I've owned, American or Japanese.
