Great Solid Car But Slow — Its a great car runs well and everything but its a little old manish in styling and slow

Pros: smoothest standard transmission i've felt

Cons: slow and looks like an old person car

I'm At 226,000 Miles, 'nuff Said. — Wonderful build. Longevity. Scandinavian style. Lower performance. Good in snow w/ proper tires. Reliable. Conservative, but gets the job done, and makes a statement at the same time. If you buy this car, or a newer model Volvo, you'll be extremely pleased with how long it lasts. Appearance suggests you're a pragmatic guy, but you won't get knocked by car-people, despite it's weak performance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I'm from VT. We love Volvo's. My Volvo shows that I appreciate a wonderfully built, and thought-out car.

Cons: Poor-ish milage. Low performance.

My current vehicle is my 1993 Volvo 850 GLT that I recently acquired for $800.00 with 251.000 KM on it. A great car. Very nice high-way cruiser and excellent on gas. I am a fan of classic cars, and its boxy look is in my eyes perfect. There is lots of cargo space and the car is cosmetically and seemingly mechanically in very good condition. Its not the wagon, but regardless still very spacious. The radio is great, as well as the heater. The rev-counter works intermittent but everything else works well on the dash. All the user-electronics work well, except for the fog-lights which are smashed and which Ill replace, and half of the interior-lights and the heated seats dont work. I am suspecting a fuse and will investigate later. Other than that, besides a finicky electric seat, my Volvo is my champ. And even though I was nervous buying an old Volvo being a poor uni student, I am happy I did. What a car!

Very reliable car even with 250,000 plus miles still going very strong. My kids will always choose for me to drive them in this car rather than the other cars we own. Back seats have a lot of room and... Read More

Funky/fun Volvo Needs Some Tlc By philipjfry27

The suspension on this car when it was new was quite jarring/harsh, but now that it's 18 years old and basically never serviced, it's abysmal. Speed bumps are a nightmare, but once you get onto th... Read More
