1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

I've owned two 240's since 1984. Bought this car Feb. 02 with 97,000 miles. I've put 3000 miles on it. Been in the shop twice already. First, the engine check light went on. Emmission control sensor neede replacing. Now, flashing orange arrow & engine check light on. Back to the shop. Mechanic tells me I need a new transmission at a cost of 3,200. I put over 225,000 mi. on my 240's with no problems. This 850 is the worst. I'll NEVER buy a Volvo again. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I'm back in the shop again!
