1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


I bought this car with around 95,000
miles on it. Like many other people, I
noticed what looked like an oil leak
and found out that the rear main seal
and the turbo seal broke, but luckily
the warranty lasted until 100,000 miles
so I got that fixed for free. Other
than that there have been no problems
and i've driven it for another 5,000
miles. The ride is good and the side
curtain airbags and traction control
make this a safe car

Best Features

turbo, heated memory seats, premium sound system, excellent cargo and passenger room, and the economy/sport/winter mode settings

Worst Features

The controls and the boxy design have been changed in 1998 with the s70 so my suggested improvements have been answered.
