1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Traded in a 740 with 170,000 for an 850 with 58,000. I had the rear seal oil leak problem, but once that was fixed, this car has been a dream. I now have 130,000 miles and it runs just as smooth as the day I got it. I'm turning it over to our newly licensed teenage daughter and getting a used S70 (which by the way, is what my husband drives). I strongly recommend the scheduled 5,000 maintenance. Our local dealers service dept is simply the best. We couldn't ask for better!

Suggested Improvements

RE:Oil leak problem. "Advise dealers service dept. to REMOVE and thoroughly clean the breather box every 20,000 miles. A clogged breather box forces the oil back into the engine which creates the leak. If that is done, you might avoid the $1,600 repair. The cost to remove and clean
