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.
The vehicle's ride, handling, and
integrity are the same after 6 years
Design on board computer to reset
automatically without needing a trip
to a repair shop.
