1996 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Sedan
Have enjoyed everything about R! Great
acceleration, handling good for sedan.
Been smacked 3 times by poor
drivers....great protection, never close
to injury! Safety plus. Seats are
best...cannot stand other luxury
seats..especially for long trip,
replaced radio x'x 3 (all on warranty.)
A/C fine for 6 years, then leak in
heater coil. Ride harsher than GLT
sedan, but wouldn't trade ddue to other
features. Love it at 207K miles....hate
the "soft" 17 inch wheels, bend...but
saved life once so....! Cannot find a
replacement with all features I like
...keep it til 300K or 400K.
Acceleration great, seats absolutely
wonderful, can drive for 100's without
complaint. A/C good in hot gulf, Feel
protected by great safety features. Have
liked cruise control...very accurate and
adjustable. Fun to drive..comfotable.
Wheels, wheels wheels. Front spoiler
"guards" to avoid high curbs. Better cup
holders and window controls on door.
