1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

This car has had a steady stream of minor and moderate problems: repairing the AC was the biggest expense, but also several minor electrical problems and lots of poor fit/quality issues. I've lost the motor on the antennae and the gas cap...very annoying. Radio reption is terrible...my Volvo dealer tells me "everyone knows Volvo radios don't work well." Lots of rattles/noises. Moon Roof fits poorly. Also, in terms of handlng, the car feels heavy to me. Accelerates fine, but not very good control in turns. I expected Volvo to have excellent attention to detail, but don't feel that way now.

Best Features

Nice acceleration.

Worst Features

Overall attention to details.
