1997 Volvo 850 4dr Sedan


I was surprised by its performance
when I first drove it. Very responsive
in traffic, quick and easy to
maneuver. I like the turning radius. It
has a somewhat odd layout on the
dash but I quickly got used to it.
Traveled through the California
desert and into the Sierras with the
outside temp of about 100F, five
people in the car and no problem.
Never slowed down when climbing.

Best Features

It's quick in traffic. Great turning radius. Very maneuverable. I feel safe in it. Fantastic sound system. If I really want to hear a cd, I play it in the Volvo.

Worst Features

Head supports are massive, I'm a small woman and I don't drive with mirrors. Could use more space in doors for maps. I don't like the cup holders perched over the drive controls. Flimsy.
