Volvo? Never Again!!
By M&P on
Vehicle1995 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon
ReviewBought used w/ 167Kmiles (13 yrs old). Prev. svc records showed good care, but fixes cost us $3,000 in 4 mos. "Check Engine" light came on before we got it home. Next wk the ABS had a fault; day after that, another ABS fault (ABS Control module [the "brain] died; vehicle speed sensor died; electronic climate control & keyless entry unreliable; today the car sputters & won't start; rattles badly & gives a rough ride. After 30+ years of German cars, we decided to try a Volvo for reliability. What a mistake! This one won't make it to 200K. No on will ever buy this if we're honest. Parts & repairs VERY expensive. Not DIY friendly. Tow companies love us. Afraid to take long trip in this car.
Best FeaturesHonestly? Nothing stands out except big cargo area in this wagon.
Worst FeaturesDon't buy a used '95 850 Turbo - front to back, everything needs to be improved. Will never, ever buy another Volvo. This one is a nightmare.
