Very Good, But Not Great
By popeye on


1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Original owner, now 55k miles. Best
car I ever owned, but two major faults:
A/C is very prone to break downs (the
controls and doors in dash); and heavy
rain storm water splashing into the
engin compartment causes the dash
warning lights to come on and loss of
power steering, etc. Believe belt must
get wet and slip. Service at dealer is
excellent. Thinking about buying
another one.

Best Features

I love the turbo acceleration, responsiveness, handling, brakes, front wheel drive, interior design and roominess.

Worst Features

Improve the A/C system reliability and splashing water problems in the engine compartment.
