Nice car, expensive to run

1993 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan


Our 1993 Volvo 850 was in pristine shape at
56,000mi. when we bought it from a private
party in 2000. At 85G it still runs and looks
great, almost like a late model. The engine
burns no oil between changes, ride is serene.
It's hardly a performance vehicle but capable
enough on both long and short trips. The
seats are excellent and the rear seat fold down
has been useful for the occasional long cargo.
Brakes are excellent Gas mileage has been 18
mpg city, 28 mpg highway. Although driving
this car is generally an enjoyable experience,
the ride is noticebly harsh on rough roads.
Frequency of repair has has been about
average but expensive.

Best Features

No standouts, just good ride and handling, right size for us, good interior layout. Most important, my wife likes it.

Worst Features

Cup holders would be nice.
