1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

The quality of this vehicle has been extraordinarly low. Lightbulbs go out constantly. The headlight switch went at 18,000 miles. The exterior side trim on both sides has become loose and munched by door opening three times now. The tensioner on the main engine belt has been a major problem - during wet weather, the alternator spins down and we lose power steering! We bought this car for it's reputation of being safe and reliable - it has been a nightmare. We'll never buy another volvo.

Best Features

Powerful engine, very fast when needed. Child seat comes in handy.

Worst Features

Overall build quality on this vehicle needs to be improved. Many, many little things - mostly electrical, but not all - need to go through a major quality control pass back at the factory.
