1994 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon


I bought my 850 turbo wagon brand new in 93 and have put 195,374 fun filled miles on it in the past 13 years. I have religiously maintained it as instructed by the owner's manual and have had no major problems with it. Most of the reviews Ive read about this car were given by people who bought one used and obviously did not have their mechanic look it over before purchasing. As long as you take care of this car, it will take care of you. I have changed the oil regularly and I use mobil one synthetic exclusively. The only major repairs Ive had to perform is replacing an a/c evaporator @ 132,000 miles. Other than that, Ive only had to replace the usual wear & tear items,tires,filters,etc

Best Features

The turbo makes this car very fun to drive. The seats are amazing as is the amount of stuff it will carry. In 13 years, Ive never had to replace the rotors, I just keep having them turned which amazes me considering the car has over 195,000 miles on it. Its built like a tank, fast, fun & reliable

Worst Features

My only complaint is the layout of the switches on the interrior. It takes some getting used to but after a while, it becomes second nature. As for other people having problems with their tires and brakes, all I can say is make sure U get alignment checked. My tires average around 45,000 miles.
