1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought my '97 850GLT sedan new, and have put on 98,000 miles in 5 yrs. The worst problems so far have been related to the on board computer. You need a Volvo dealer to diagnose any problems when the "check engine" lamp goes on because most local mechanics won't spend the money on the diagnostic equipment needed. Idiot lights aside, I have seen way fewer problems with this car than some other more expensive sedans out there. Plus I've seen a lots of real old Volvos still on the road. There is a entire subculture involved in restoring and modifying Volvo's...and they start with cars that have 100K + miles because it's such a solid car to begin with.
Favorite Features
Solid road feel, gas mileage (22-25), good acceleration with GLT light pressure turbo, decent price.
Suggested Improvements
Interior controls are funky. New parts are not cheap.
