Poor reliability & expensive to maintain
By jll on


1997 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


I gave up on trying to fix all the
problems with this car and finally
traded it in. The reliability is
horrible, everything and anything
broke. Sunroof stopped working, A/C
broke on multiple occassions, keyless
entry broke multiple times (too
expensive to repair, I didn't bother
to fix the last time), power steering
fluid leaking, had to replace brake
pads frequently. Random things would
break off as well - cup holders, the
door hinge for the gas cap, random
pieces of plastic and rubber would
fall on my head, the leather on the
door panel is bubbling. It only had
62k miles on it, so I didn't drive it
excessively either. I will never buy
another Volvo!

Best Features

seats are comfortable, spacious interior, great turning radius, large trunk, feels very safe to drive

Worst Features

cup holders are horrible, gas mileage has increasingly gotten worse, heated front seats buttons are easily turned on by accident, needs better reliability by far!!
