1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchase a 1997 GLT Sedan about two years ago with 38,000 miles. I've put an additional 40,000 on the vehicle. Like another poster, I took my vehicle in for an oil leak & it turned out to be a rear main seal (big $$$$) at 70,000. There have been no other issues with the car. It has solid performance characteristics and is assisting nicely with my transition into adulthood at 32 (it is my first non-manual transmission). Not as fun to drive as my old Integra GSR....but its a heck of a lot quieter!

Favorite Features

Good acceleration with out much turbo lag. Lots of room. Cops won't pull you over (they'd rather pick on the Audi and BMW folk)

Suggested Improvements

Reliability (see rear seal above)....and I wish this model had a manual transmission (fortunately the new ones do)
