1997 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon


There are cars that are faster, more
luxurious, and more reliable. But
considering everything you get, the
Volvo 850 GLT is one of the best cars
you can buy. The turbo makes this
dependably fast enough to merge and
avoid. The steering is crisp, ABS
brakes powerful & effective. The
interior appointments are superb. And
with careful maintenance you avoid the
big repair bills. Watch out for
potholes (alignment) and check brake
pads often.

Best Features

For the price you are not going to get the leather seating, instumentation, power seating, dual climate control, interior lighting, moonroof, etc. This is truly value.

Worst Features

Biggest problem: the B pillar. Major blind spot. You have to turn around to check before changing lanes. Also, window controls in ctr. console take getting used to.
