Great value when purchased used.

1997 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Wagon
Love the shape of my 850R wagon. Still
contemporary interior. Very spacious.
Purchased for $11,000 with 85,000 miles
in bad condition. Invested $1000 to
change all fluids, battery, brakes and
tubro seals and hoses. Running like a
bueauty for a year- no problems. I also
have 88 Volvo 240 with 180,000 and
expect to put 300,000 miles on it :)
This is not a joke - just go to a junk
yard to see 240s with over 300,000
miles on them. Welcome to Volvo
Heated seats, turbo punch on freeway,
confindence when driving.
Interior of the wagon rattles a lot -
different materials & panel attachments
need to be used. Chains or spikes-
spiders always damage inner side front
wheel wells when drining on ice/snow.
I wish manual was available.
