1993 Volvo 850 T 2.3L from Singapore
Lovely. I hope this can be my wedding car in a few years time
This is a really strong car. It withstood knocks of 30 kilometers an hour... with minor scratches!
Then there is one problem worth mentioning. You will see that I gave the worst marks to its cost of running above. We have a slang in Chinese that literally means "Eating oil" and this car is clearly a huge eater of oil. It does 8.55 kilometers per liter of oil. Bad considering some new cars doing 12 kilometers on one liter. But all in all, it's still a great car. That's because we learn to live with our faults. I know I have faults too...
A real beauty. Steering is one of the best. Man I'm so used to this steering, that when I took the family car out (it's an MPV, or Multi-Purpose-Van) I nearly ended up on the pavement on a few occasions!
Lights have been great, but I switched them to the white kind as they are brighter.
Final point is acceleration. On highways across the causeway (In Malaysia) I timed the acceleration from 0-100 and it was about 9.5 seconds. Nice for a car this old. L O V E I T!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
