Second Volvo to save my life.
Oxygen sensor failure.
Stereo kept shorting out.
This was my second Volvo, the first having been destroyed by a tractor trailer.
This car was a great car, I didn't enjoy it as much as my previous 740 in part beacuse of the automatic transmission.
It felt slightly detached in comparison to the 740.
The 850 was a comfortable car to drive, very luxurious, interior very spacious.
Once again Volvo engineering saved my life, I tried to dodge a deer and spun the car and went backwards into a telephone pole at about 40 mph destroying the back of the car, I managed to stumble away from the wreck after kicking the door open (heavy frame damage) but all in all I was fine.
After my experiences my children will drive Volvo's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
