1997 Volvo 850 R Turbo 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car after looking at
later year S70 AWD models. My wife
actually said "that looks like you"
when she saw it on the lot. It took
about 10 seconds to figure out this was
the right car. Unbelievable
acceleration, control, comfort and
class. Wouldn't consider driving
anything else. It really is fun when
the turbo kicks in at about 15 mph and
you leave the rest of the pack behind.
A completely wonderful car in all
aspects. Even get about 21 mpg's. Not
bad for one heck of a performance car.

Best Features

Fast start, merging onto highways with no problem. Killer leather trim, black leather with suede inserts.

Worst Features

Nothing really comes to mind. Maybe a five speed manual transmission. Naw, that would be too much!
