1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Wagon


Excellent value, bought privately two
years ago, holding value very
well....some dealers can really hose
you, had real RIP-OFF experience with
one, absolutely excellent with
another. Any problems are well known,
easily fixed, and non-recurring, Eg:
ABS/TRACs light on is simple $45
electrical ignition switch fix, air
pump should be $200 fix IF dealer
replaces air check valve. Basic parts
are available over internet from ipd
and others at 30- 60% off of Volvo
Dealer prices. Currently 120K miles,
feels strong and smooth.

Best Features

Everything inside well thought out, easy access on regular maintenance items. Very well engineered.

Worst Features

Will consider a shock upgrade when needed, bit harsh on rough roads.
