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
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.
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.
