1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon


Having owned many, many used cars over
the past decades, I have a good
baseline from which to evaluate long
term reliability. I attribute
excellent build quality to the
phenomenal reliability that we have
experienced with this car. After over
45000 miles, the only problem
experienced was with a squeaky
ventilation fan.

Best Features

The turbocharged engine gives this car a great advantage at the stoplights where most other drivers wouldn't even suspect that a wagon could do well off the line.

Worst Features

The drivers seat could be better if it allowed for another inch of travel to accomodate extra tall drivers.
