1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

The really annoying thing about this car is the AC. I live in Florida, and I'm convinced that Swedes don't know jack about AC. AC first broke only 2000 miles out of warranty for $2500 ("condenser") and now again with same three years later. (According to repair guy, the design is such that the entire engine has to be removed to get at the AC unit. What a dopey design!) I plan on getting rid of it because I'm not willing to sink over 2 grand into a 6 1/2 year old car with 125K miles. Also, I agree about flimsy cup holders, and none in back seat. Acceleration and handling are excellent tho!

Best Features

Acceleration, handling, sound system, huge trunk, protection (came through front end collision pretty mangled but my husband was unscathed)

Worst Features

A/C!! Cup holders. Boxy style. (They did that already.)
