1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan
Review
The car drives very well--good turning radius, acceleration, engine response at high and low speeds, and great feeling of safety. It's also styled very well. However, in 7.5 years of my ownership, this car hardly ever has periods where nothing's wrong with it-- e.g. undiagnosed, unresolved excess oil consumption, flat tires due to the wrong type put on them by Volvo,2 exhausts replaced, a new turbocharger, plus a dozen other dumb little things, like an unopenable gas-tank door (!),several remote key entry replacements and broken cheapo cupholders. The extended warranty has paid for itself many times over.
Favorite Features
Handling, turning radius, engine response.
Suggested Improvements
Fix the oil consumption--maybe ditch the turbocharger altogether. Improve interior materials.
