Happy with the 850

1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan


My 850 T5 has been great for five years now. MPG on the highway remains constant at about 30, (70 to 70 mph). Repairs to date: fuel pump at 175,000; timing belt tensioner at 221,000. Oil leaks are beginning to appear and the ABS waring light is starting to come on from time to time. I probably won't have these problems fixed....at 222,000 miles I can't justify spending more $$ on the car. (And yes, Volvo owners, I too have bought dozens of light bulbs for this Volvo over the years.) This was my third Volvo and I'm looking for my fourth one now. A great car oveall.

Best Features

Quality, reliability, comfort, performance

Worst Features

Volvo interiors tend to be cheap. Why do all Volvos consume so many light bulbs?
