1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

The Volvo wagon is unique. Lots of power and room but lots of mechanical problems too. It has cost $4500 in repairs to keep it going 75,000 miles so far and that does not include the $1200 quoted for replacing the AC evaporator. I might sell the car if I can't find a better price for the AC repair.

Favorite Features

Power and room

Suggested Improvements

Poorly built and prone to mechanical failure.

I concur. I had a fully loaded '97 GLT wagon. It was a beautiful car, but, a mechanical piece of garbage.
