Nice but it has Flaws
By Al-man on


1995 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Overall it's a nice, solid car with the
most beautiful, comfortable leather
seats I've ever seen, nice alloy
wheels and an attractive overall look.
But look out for major mechanical
defects...the a/c evaporator is a
common problem, costs $1,000 to
replace...also lots of trouble with the
temperature sensors, constant
problems with the power antenna,
also tends to leak a lot of oil and
other fluids. I thought this was the
most reliable of the European
brands but I was wrong; I'm too busy
to hassle with the constant problems
and wish I had gone with a
Japanese make.

Best Features

Hands down it's the incredibly comfortable and high quality leather seats, very roomy interior

Worst Features

For some reason, when outside temp is below freezing the dash display won't show the miles left to empty, instead just shows temp readout
