1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Wagon


Bought this car used from a dealer.
It had 49,000 miles, but looked
perfect, and had all the maintenance
records. The engine is great, lots of
power at stop lights and on the
highway. Great for long trips, seats
fold totally flat, and can go well
over 420 miles on a tank of gas. My
only complaint is with the ride over
even moderately rough roads. You feel
every road bump. I have driven over
some pot holes where I thought the
front end would fall off the car shook
so badly. Ironically, the car rides
much better when fully loaded with
people and luggage.

Best Features

Lots of power, lots of luggage room.

Worst Features

Reduce the body shake over rough roads.
