1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Original owner, now 55k miles. Best car I ever owned, but two major faults: A/C is very prone to break downs (the controls and doors in dash); and heavy rain storm water splashing into the engin compartment causes the dash warning lights to come on and loss of power steering, etc. Believe belt must get wet and slip. Service at dealer is excellent. Thinking about buying another one.

Best Features

I love the turbo acceleration, responsiveness, handling, brakes, front wheel drive, interior design and roominess.

Worst Features

Improve the A/C system reliability and splashing water problems in the engine compartment.
