Cheap materials - my last Volvo
By vivolvo on


1994 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan


Mirror controls on the center console
show poor placement My wife puts her
purse on the console, which activates
the mirrors Like dual heat controls.
Enjoy safety features such as anti-
collision light. Fog lights are for
asthetics only - don't improve driving
vision at all. Gear box problems on
three occassions; window wind
deflectors fell off after two years,
along with body side moldings. Cheap
plastic hood latch broke within a year.
Wide door post has significant blind
spot when looking over your shoulder.
Power seat broke at 5-yr mark, required
new cable. I'll never buy another

Best Features

Dual heat/cooling controls anti-collision light great trunk access

Worst Features

Where do I start? Relocate mirror controls to drivers door panel, improve quality of materials for beverage holders, hood latch, visors, power seat cable, side moldings, and wind deflector fastening. Do away with trunk-mounted CD changer and design in- dash CD changer.
