1994 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon


In 1997 bought 1994 Turbo Wagon with
30,000 miles. Vehicle equiped with
heated front seats, headlight washers,
trip computer, third-seat, integrated
child seat, 6 CD disc changer,
moonroof. Overall - the car has
performed very well and still retains a
lot of pep. Repairs in the first 3
years of ownership were minor. The car
currently has 116,000 miles - and
recent repairs, as one would expect,
have been more serious: replaced
transmission, A/C evaporator needs to
be replaced. However, vehicle does not
burn oil, and has only sprung minor oil
leaks that were inexpensively repaired.

Best Features

Safety considerations were primary reason for purchase and this is still my favorite feature. The 222 ponies are nice to have as well.

Worst Features

Better placement of window and sideview mirror controls.
