1997 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased this car after looking at later year S70 AWD models. My wife actually said "that looks like you" when she saw it on the lot. It took about 10 seconds to figure out this was the right car. Unbelievable acceleration, control, comfort and class. Wouldn't consider driving anything else. It really is fun when the turbo kicks in at about 15 mph and you leave the rest of the pack behind. A completely wonderful car in all aspects. Even get about 21 mpg's. Not bad for one heck of a performance car.

Favorite Features

Fast start, merging onto highways with no problem. Killer leather trim, black leather with suede inserts.

Suggested Improvements

Nothing really comes to mind. Maybe a five speed manual transmission. Naw, that would be too much!
