Love That 1996 850 Turbo

1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Owned my Turbo 850 for one year. It's a used car so I had to replace the heating coil, an engine hose and stop a few oil leaks. To me, the cost was tolerable. In return, I now own a like- new Volvo. Let me tell you, on the highway, this baby runs like a cheetah. The turbo is a feature that one shouldn't be without. The car is very responsive. I bought the 850 because I, for one, like Volvo's boxy style. The creature comforts are also topnotch. There's ample head room for big guys like me. This car is a hybrid in that it's an excellent family sedan, as well as a sporty car that women love. This is my second 1996 850 and I believe I'll purchase another one. I am hooked on 1996 Volvo 850s.

Best Features

Boxy style, color (jet black), turbo, winter package, sun/moon roof, enormous trunk space, engine and tranny reliability and creature comforts.

Worst Features

Get rid of the antenna. It bends easily.
