The Honeymoon is Over
By Mike M. on
Vehicle
1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan
Review
Performance is good. Problems: You need the AC most of the year. The trunk is too small, poor interior storage, lane changes are very hazardous (HUGE 'B'pillar). Biggest problem -- repairs. You need an extended warranty. Already had about thirty repairs. Many trouble areas -- toy-like plastic parts, air conditioning , exterior trim, ABS, brake rotors, tappets, spark plug wires short-out after mild water spray under the hood, rear gas shocks, engine mounts, and others. Good early reliability, but this car is aging very rapidly.
Favorite Features
Power, manual transmission, fuel mileage, roomy and comfortable cabin, excellent brakes, firm suspension, safety.
Suggested Improvements
Change the shape of the 'B' pillars. Enlarge trunk. Move the center-mounted window switches, refine or eliminate the 'auto down' driver's feature, drastically improve long-term quality.
