1997 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon

Review

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.

Best Features

For the price you are not going to get the leather seating, instumentation, power seating, dual climate control, interior lighting, moonroof, etc. This is truly value.

Worst Features

Biggest problem: the B pillar. Major blind spot. You have to turn around to check before changing lanes. Also, window controls in ctr. console take getting used to.
