1997 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

Unless you or a friend are certified Volvo mechanics - STAY AWAY from these cars. I have thoroughly enjoyed this car - but only when it was behaving properly. I have been eaten alive with repairs and excessive maintenance. For what was originally a $40,000 car, this is the biggest rip off I have ever had the displeasure of owning.

Best Features

Fun to drive, heated seats, suede interior

Worst Features

Quality control, ABS system, better cup holders, improved dealership service, extended warranties (factory given only and supplied for free to make their old suckers - I mean customers at least think of buying one again)
