great solid car, even the trunk lid is
heavy so you know the passenger cage
will be protected in case of serious

turbo lag, for its size and weight.
above average maintenance/ repair fees

Bought my Volvo at one year with
20,000 on it. Pure comfort and
safety. Great heater seats in winter.
Currently have 115,000 on her and
expect to go another few years. No
big problems, usual maintenence and
tire replacement. Worry free car.
Its weight and driving ease.
I added a CD player in the glove -

We bought our 850 used a little over a
year ago and it's been a gem. From
these reviews, it looks like you
either get a dog or a jewel, so we
were lucky. We bought it with just
over 100k on the odometer and have put
about 15k on it in a year. From the

just over 20mpg and the only cost

year I had the car.
Space, seats. I love the solid feel of
the doors shutting. The engine is not
as refined as others, but very durable
and she likes to run! I like the winter
mode feature. It is great in the snow.
Better components such as the A/C.
