1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

While the 850 is a solid vehicle, there are many unique, sometimes annoying characteristics to the car. For example, may of the intererior gauges and controls are found in illogical places. Why would you put the rear window defogger button next to the moon roof button? This placement resulted in 4" of snow coming in the vehicle's moon roof at the slip of a finger! Moreover, the 'check engine' light has come on several times for no real reason other than to get us into a repair shop (the only way to get it reset!) Even though we enjoy the car and love its safety features, these types of aggrevations will keep us from ever again buying a Volvo product.

Favorite Features

The vehicle's ride, handling, and integrity are the same after 6 years of driving.

Suggested Improvements

Design on board computer to reset automatically without needing a trip to a repair shop.
