1997 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon

Review

Bought car 25,000 miles ago. I've only had to replace a control arm in the front end. Car runs well, with oil changes every 3,000 miles (at 3,000 on the oil change, engine seems to make a ticking noise which disappears with an oil change.) When I purchased it, it had some interior lights out. Also, radio volume is not working properly - turn down the volume, sometimes it turns all the way down with just a touch of the dial; turn it up, sometimes it maxes the volume with just a touch of the dial. Only other negative - the shift lock button clicks when I step on the brake to shift out of neutral. It's actually "fun" to drive for a wagon.

Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, good pickup for a big car without turbo, airbags, and general safety with the Volvo product.

Suggested Improvements

Slightly sluggish in the corners (but again, it's a wagon!), burned out light bulbs in the interior, costly preventive maintenance, radio problem.
