1996 Volvo 850 Platinum Limited Edition Turbo 4dr Wagon


We purchased our 850 Wagon off a three
year lease. It currently has 80K. The
car performs well, gets good gas
mileage is very comfortable, and has
been fairly reliable. Repairs include
rear main seal and ABS control at 50K.
Radio at 70K. Otherwise maintenance has
been routine. Has had pinging noise
which was explained as a relief valve
on turbo since purchased. Interior
plastic seems a bit cheap. Has squeaks
and rattles.

Best Features

Comfort and overalll performance. Good gas mileage. Great cargo capacity.

Worst Features

Interior finish. Plastic seems cheap and keeps falling off.
