Volvo Quirks

1994 Volvo 850 GLTS 4dr Sedan


This is my third Volvo,(previous 244,
and 744 owner). It has all the typical
'quirks' that make the old girl a Volvo.
1) electrical problems. It seems as
soon as you go over 75k miles, the
electrical system goes to pot,
replacing bulbs in tail light, dash,
and console instrument panel are a
constant. Driver's side power seats
don't recline anymore either.
2) Also, black trim on car peeled, and
was repainted twice to no avail.
3) 6 disk CD changer in trunk is
worthless, but sound system is great!
I've got 130k on her now, and won't
even think about another Volvo until I
crack 200k. With age comes
distinction...even if the lights keep
going out.

Best Features

Mine is a 5 speed, so gas mileage is EXCELLENT

Worst Features

Better paint job on trim, improved electrical wiring.
