1996 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Sedan


Bought 96'850R volvo in 99'.I was 16
when I got and for the first few months
it was great.After that I wished I had
bought a bicycle instead,would have
saved about 15000.Had to replace both
back brake rotors.Battery went dead
about twice a week.Alternator broke
twice.Tracs and abs light is always on
and dealership doesnt know a damn thing
about fixing it.A/C is the worst thing
ever.Leaks out once a month.

Best Features

Stereo sounds good.Very fast with ipd upgrade.Seats are nice.Handles ok but is a lil top heavy.
