1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon


The Volvo wagon is unique. Lots of power
and room but lots of mechanical problems
too. It has cost $4500 in repairs to
keep it going 75,000 miles so far and
that does not include the $1200 quoted
for replacing the AC evaporator. I might
sell the car if I can't find a better
price for the AC repair.

I concur. I had a fully loaded '97 GLT wagon. It was a beautiful car, but, a mechanical piece of garbage.
