1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan

Review

Have had the BASE model 850 for 5 years and never had a problem other than Volvo's really bad batteries and the fact that I abuse the brakes cause they are so excellent. I take it in for brake pads more than I'd like but wow what a value this car turned out to be. Also one of the heated seats is broken but I don't really care (May fix later) The thing is that it'll never be repeated as after 1997 Volvo went Japanese. All of the old school Volvo stuff got replaced and the cars have lost all the Euro touches that are so great about it. I am sure the new Volvos are still good, but I certainly don't like them.

Favorite Features

Seats, BRAKES (probably the best ever made)

Suggested Improvements

None. At the price I paid in 97 the car is perfect and a great value and the Volvo experience that will probably never be repeated. I consider the car to be a collectors item, especially in the light blue color no longer available.
