1996 Volvo 850 Wagon 2.5L 144hp
A robust swede that will never let you down
ABS-module - Typical problem of cracked solder joints.
Door hinge driver's side - Typical Volvo problem.
Instrument panel - just went dead when jumpstarting the car after a long period of not being used.
Parts of the dashboard on the passenger side have started to warp.
It's very rust resilient. After many winters with salted roads, I can barely find any rust on the undercarriage.
Great seats and driving comfort. Lots of space.
If you are not willing to spend your hard earned money on the dealership, there are a lot of information on repairs online. It is relatively easy to work on.
It's a heavy car, therefore not the best fuel economy.
Conclusion: It's a great car. You can't go wrong buying it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
