1997 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon

Review

Just purchased my new wagon to replace my 245 Turbo with 186000. Nice car, love the luxury. Wish every window had controls. I researched the vehicle before I purchased and knew that the evaporator and the rear engine seal had already been replaced. Gas leaking from the bushings near the heat shield but volvo will replace as a safety recall. It's got 81000 miles and I purchased it for $5900 including tax. I'm happy. The broker didn't know what he had!

There are cars that are faster, more luxurious, and more reliable. But considering everything you get, the Volvo 850 GLT is one of the best cars you can buy. The turbo makes this dependably fast enough to merge and avoid. The steering is crisp, ABS brakes powerful & effective. The interior appointments are superb. And with careful maintenance you avoid the big repair bills. Watch out for potholes (alignment) and check brake pads often.

I bought a '97 Volvo from the biggest dealership in Washington DC. That car was absolute garbage. It was in the shop literally every other month. It was a "certified used car," (which means nothing as you will come to find out). It was trash. Stay away from Volvo.

So far I've had to replace only the alternator (knock wood). Yes, they are expensive to repair. Several other mods have been made by choice. Sport Springs and 17' low profile tires have transformed this wgn into a sportscar in the twisties, I can only dream of the performance post upgraded anti-sway bars. K&N filter made moderate difference @ high rpm.

Good Car!

Review

Bought car 25,000 miles ago. I've only had to replace a control arm in the front end. Car runs well, with oil changes every 3,000 miles (at 3,000 on the oil change, engine seems to make a ticking noise which disappears with an oil change.) When I purchased it, it had some interior lights out. Also, radio volume is not working properly - turn down the volume, sometimes it turns all the way down with just a touch of the dial; turn it up, sometimes it maxes the volume with just a touch of the dial. Only other negative - the shift lock button clicks when I step on the brake to shift out of neutral. It's actually "fun" to drive for a wagon.
