Solid & Reliable
By Brian on


1996 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan


Solid, reliable car with no perks. It's never quit on me, but that darn check engine light has been on nearly the whole time I've had the car. Apparently I'm not the only one this happens to. Timeless, classic style holds up well, and the 10yr old interior still looks like new. Nice trunk space and good room for 4 Americans(I think you know what I mean). It's not called "The Brick" for nothing.

Best Features

Simple, easy to use dashboard layout. Roomy trunk and cabin. Classic look still impressive when compared to new cars.

Worst Features

Vovo should really figure out how to control it's "Check Engine" lights and on board computers. They have a mind of their own and can cost you thousands, as mechanics search for the cause of repetitive problems.
