Volvo 850R Wagon

1996 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Wagon
Review
We bought our R Wagon used with 49K miles. After looking for Volvo turbo and non wagons, the R was a find. I figured if we were going to drive a wagon, it would be a bad ass one. Only complaint are amount of rattles which cannot completely be blamed on wheel and tire package as other Volvo's in our family were known to rattle. It's blast to drive around and a great highway cruiser. Passes at the blip of the throttle, brakes are strong and handles like it's smaller and lighter than it is.
Favorite Features
Engine and handling for a wagon are superior yet you know you're safe with the family inside as it is a Volvo . Very dependable as we have had no unforseen problems.
Suggested Improvements
Cupholders could be better but this model year was on the verge of serious cupholder requirements. Steering wheel radio or cruise controls would make it a perfect cruiser. Better use of under cargo area storage as the full size 17" rim and tire take up too much well space.
