1997 Volvo 850 4dr Wagon


Just purchased my new wagon to replace
my 245 Turbo with 186000. Nice car,
love the luxury. Wish every window had
controls. I researched the vehicle
before I purchased and knew that the
evaporator and the rear engine seal had
already been replaced. Gas leaking from
the bushings near the heat shield but
volvo will replace as a safety recall.
It's got 81000 miles and I purchased it
for $5900 including tax. I'm happy.
The broker didn't know what he had!

Best Features

Leather seats, moonroof, coffee holder. Jumping from 1985 to 1997 causes me to appreciate this automobile like no other.

Worst Features

Volvo should replace the evaporator and the rear engine seal -- they all go bad. Put controls on all the windows that can be locked from the front (like 1985)
