1997 Volvo 850 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan


Very happy with my T-5. The
acceleration is great, and given it's a
turbo and I keep it on sport mode the
gas MPG is great 28/23. Exterior finish
is great, keep it waxed, the leather
seats are mega comfortable on long
trips. The only problem I have had
after 98,000 miles was the AC went out
1,000 miles over warranty. Nevertheless
I fought with the dealer quite
aggresively on this issue given the
cost to repair. I told them it wasn't
real slick passing Yugo's with their
windows rolled up enjoying their AC in
FL and I was going down the road in a
35k dollar car with my windows down
because the AC didn't work. They
replaced it free. Overall great car.

Best Features

Seats, reliability, finish, acceleration, stero, feeling of security, trunk space.

Worst Features

Get the AC kinks worked out guys. Weak cup holders.
