Suprisingly fun, yet......

1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan
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!
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)
Reliability (see rear seal
above)....and I wish this model had a
manual transmission (fortunately the
new ones do)
