Most unreliable car we have owned

Vehicle
1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon
Review
This car is a big disappointment. Dealer had good reputation and all signs pointed to a good ownership experience. Wrong! Stuck on the side of the raod twice. Alternator failed. Transmission computer failed. Air pump failed. Brakes squeal!!! Battery failed without warning. AC failed at least twice. Somehow refrigerant got out of the AC system without there being a leak. Right. Dealer service is expensive etc. etc. BMWs have been much more reliable. Old Volvos deserve their good reputation; this one does not.
Favorite Features
Seat are nice. Cargo capacity is great. Usual Volvo safety attributes.
Suggested Improvements
Too expensive for only a five-cylinder engine. Just not reliable. Repairs are expensive. Dealer explanations of service problems are not credible.
