1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan
We bought the 850-T5 with 42,000 mi, it
now has 72,000. This car has been
nothing but a problem since we bought
it. Problems include: electrical
system, A/C went out, broken seal for
the headlight washers and engine
replaced. Fortunately, we did purchase
an extended warranty but we're suing
the Warranty company for failure to
settle the claim.
I will never buy another one, I've also
owned 2 BMW's (currently a '97 740I)
and these have always been reliable.
Note that I have maintained an
impeccable service schedule. As a
result there's no excuse for this car's
lack of quaility and reliability.
Volvo buyers should BEWARE.
Seats and sunroof (but not worth the
100,000MI/5 Year bumper to bumper
warranty (you'll need it.)
