1993 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan


This car is one of the best values we've ever purchased in a used car. However, after almost 5 years of ownership, I must say that it is bittersweet. The maintenance costs are astronomical! I would estimate over $2,000 per year in maintenance and repairs. It is built like a tank and has the most comfortable seats I have ever experienced. On the highway, we get 27 mpg! (imperial gallon!)

Best Features

Engine, handling, steering, seats, memory driver's seat, highway performance.

Worst Features

Too many idiot lights on dash, something is always going off. Improve quality of parts (eg. brake calipers, A/C, fuel pump). Maintenance is too expensive.
