Avoid the Volvo 850!

Vehicle1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan
ReviewI bought this car as a family vehicle,
upgrading from my Honda sports car. It
has barely met expectation. While it
consistently rates well on crash tests,
every little thing breaks on this car
and I BABY this vehicle. It has low
mileage and I service it every 5K
miles. In 4.5 years, virtually every
part has failed and Volvo charges
upwards of $1500 for every repair.
That includes replacing the lightbulb
that lights the dashboard (failed in
first 6 months of ownership) and the
wipers on the headlights (failed during
first 3 years of ownership).
Best FeaturesHandles well for a mid-priced sedan.
Worst FeaturesAll of the little pieces that fail in the first 50K should be REPAIRED at no charge! Or, maybe Volvo should just get out of the car manufacturing business.
