1996 Volvo 850 GLT 4dr Sedan


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
way that it drives, you would never
suspect that it has that many miles on
it, it drives just like a new car. In
our year of ownership, we've averaged
just over 20mpg and the only cost
we've had (other than oil changes) was
for an A/C repair early last summer
for about $300. I highly recommend
this car.
