An exasperating, expensive pleasure
By Princeton on
Vehicle1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan
ReviewThe car drives very well--good turning
radius, acceleration, engine response
at high and low speeds, and great
feeling of safety. It's also styled
very well. However, in 7.5 years of my
ownership, this car hardly ever has
periods where nothing's wrong with it--
e.g. undiagnosed, unresolved excess oil
consumption, flat tires due to the
wrong type put on them by Volvo,2
exhausts replaced, a new turbocharger,
plus a dozen other dumb little things,
like an unopenable gas-tank door
(!),several remote key entry
replacements and broken cheapo
cupholders. The extended warranty has
paid for itself many times over.
Best FeaturesHandling, turning radius, engine response.
Worst FeaturesFix the oil consumption--maybe ditch the turbocharger altogether. Improve interior materials.
