    A Great Safe First Car For New Drivers. — It kept me safe and on the road. I felt very secure driving it. And it had all the luxuries I wanted - Leather, CD, Sunroof, Heated Seats. And it was free. :-)

    Pros: Lots, A really great first car.

    Cons: Expensive to fix.

    Fast But What A Traction Nightmare.. — Typically boxy swede which smelt fantastic, superbly finished and comfortable leather, 850R, good transmission and tidy handler onGT2 tyres, good lines if little restrained very unassuming in dark blue with black leather, good sleeper.

    Pros: safety ( when its safer you drive faster more ),fit and finish, sound, heater and stereo top notch.

    Cons: Why o hy did they not make it a rear wheel drive or at least Four wheel drive.. when you need the power it falls to pieces in a fit of torque steer and tramp truly awful..

    Powerful Fwd Car — Had much fun with 850 T5 until I got fed up with traction problems of a FWD car. Powerful and fast cars must be RWD or 4WD. Transmission falure was the final reason to get rid of it..

    Pros: Powerful engine with nice 5cyl sound. Exellent seats and classy interior. Good barkes and overall handling.

    Cons: FWD and everything about it! Hellish understeering, poor traction and sideways wobbling via acceleration. Fragile transmission.

    It's A Box. Big, Sturdy Box. The Way A Volvo Should Be — Very good car. Not always the most attractive, but is still a well-make piece of machinery.

    Pros: No major engine problems
    Sport Mode is useful when needed
    Excellent turning radius

    Cons: There are several minor problems that happen with the 850 series.

    Wolf In Sheep Clothes — Awsome engine, but hard to drive really, as the 240+ bhp go direct on the front wheels. Gotta have some driving knowledge to avoit kissing trees on a wet surface. Apart from that, a superb machine

    Pros: T5 engine

    Cons: Not sure I really can say anything against the T5
