1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon


We bought a 1997 850 T-5 wagon in Sept.
of 1996. The car looks and drives no
different now, then the day we drove it
home. It is easy and fun to drive; the
Sport mode on the transmission is
awesome. Traction Control and snow
tires make it grate in the snow. The
cup holders are too small and too
delicte. The power window controls are
unreachable when cup holders are out.
The 850 is very versitile; lots of
cargo room, seats fold down easily,
roof rails are handy. The dash is easy
to use, the stereo and dual climate
control are awesome. I will be buying
many more Volvos.

Best Features

Seats, Stereo, Sport Mode, and the saftey features that still out due many new American cars.

Worst Features

a compass, better cup holders upfront,and it needs cup holders for rear seat passengers.
