1996 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Wagon


We bought our R Wagon used with
49K miles. After looking for Volvo
turbo and non wagons, the R was a
find. I figured if we were going to
drive a wagon, it would be a bad ass
one. Only complaint are amount of
rattles which cannot completely be
blamed on wheel and tire package
as other Volvo's in our family were
known to rattle. It's blast to drive
around and a great highway cruiser.
Passes at the blip of the throttle,
brakes are strong and handles like
it's smaller and lighter than it is.

Best Features

Engine and handling for a wagon are superior yet you know you're safe with the family inside as it is a Volvo . Very dependable as we have had no unforseen problems.

Worst Features

Cupholders could be better but this model year was on the verge of serious cupholder requirements. Steering wheel radio or cruise controls would make it a perfect cruiser. Better use of under cargo area storage as the full size 17" rim and tire take up too much well space.
