Lots of trouble
By Walrus on
Vehicle1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon
ReviewThe 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 FeaturesPowerful engine, very fast when needed. Child seat comes in handy.
Worst FeaturesOverall 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.
