1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan


i loved my 740, drove it till 165,000
miles and still ran great. thought i
was upgrading w/the 850. there is
always something breaking. spent $1200
on ac leak (that volvo should have
fixed at their cost, since the repair
is due to a design defect), the anti
lock breaks are out ($800), can't get
tires to last more than 25000 miles,
trim falling off the outside. it is
fun to drive when it runs right.

Best Features

handling, comfortable seats, easy to see out of (no blind spots), safety features/ crash test results, roomy for its size.

Worst Features

replace the flimzy cup holders, add rear cup holders, rear ac control and vents,put window switches on door, fix ac manuacturing defect at the factory, fix problems w/ seal, anti lock break controller. make more reliable.
