1996 Volvo 850 T 5 2.3 20V turbo from UK and Ireland
Buy one you won't regret it
Reversing light switch can play up.
Drivers door check strap is noisy, but works fine.
Clutch is on its way out.
Now cheap to buy
Cheap on insurance due to the standard security features
Don't believe what you hear, fuel consumption is great, half of what a BMW 325i uses
Torque is never ending it pulls like a train
Very quiet inside and comfy loads of room.
Heated seats, need I say more?
Stereo is great
Love the wolf in sheep's clothing part it plays.
Only people in the know raise eyebrows when you say "I've got a Volvo T5"
Dont be put off if youve never had one, parts are not expensive, running costs are low apart from front tyres, but just rotate them every 3 months or so,and make sure you regularily change engine and gearbox oil.
You will love the car, just test drive one, i was hooked.
A great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
