1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

i loved my 740, drove it till 165,000 miles and still ran great. thought i was upgrading w/the 850. there is always something breaking. spent $1200 on ac leak (that volvo should have fixed at their cost, since the repair is due to a design defect), the anti lock breaks are out ($800), can't get tires to last more than 25000 miles, trim falling off the outside. it is fun to drive when it runs right.

Favorite Features

handling, comfortable seats, easy to see out of (no blind spots), safety features/ crash test results, roomy for its size.

Suggested Improvements

replace the flimzy cup holders, add rear cup holders, rear ac control and vents,put window switches on door, fix ac manuacturing defect at the factory, fix problems w/ seal, anti lock break controller. make more reliable.
