1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car as a family vehicle, upgrading from my Honda sports car. It has barely met expectation. While it consistently rates well on crash tests, every little thing breaks on this car and I BABY this vehicle. It has low mileage and I service it every 5K miles. In 4.5 years, virtually every part has failed and Volvo charges upwards of $1500 for every repair. That includes replacing the lightbulb that lights the dashboard (failed in first 6 months of ownership) and the wipers on the headlights (failed during first 3 years of ownership).

Favorite Features

Handles well for a mid-priced sedan.

Suggested Improvements

All of the little pieces that fail in the first 50K should be REPAIRED at no charge! Or, maybe Volvo should just get out of the car manufacturing business.
