1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

Very happy with my T-5. The acceleration is great, and given it's a turbo and I keep it on sport mode the gas MPG is great 28/23. Exterior finish is great, keep it waxed, the leather seats are mega comfortable on long trips. The only problem I have had after 98,000 miles was the AC went out 1,000 miles over warranty. Nevertheless I fought with the dealer quite aggresively on this issue given the cost to repair. I told them it wasn't real slick passing Yugo's with their windows rolled up enjoying their AC in FL and I was going down the road in a 35k dollar car with my windows down because the AC didn't work. They replaced it free. Overall great car.

Favorite Features

Seats, reliability, finish, acceleration, stero, feeling of security, trunk space.

Suggested Improvements

Get the AC kinks worked out guys. Weak cup holders.
