    D Dose Of Volvo Turbo From A Muscle Car Guy. — i love everything on the car but since its a volvo made before ford bought them out the parts are pricey and hard to find but the turbo gives the 2.3 L 5 cylender some much needed balls and being a die hard mucle car guy i was a bit sceptical on how it would turn out due to the horror stories given to me as i researched the car. iwas on the fence about it but after i turned thTSC(traction control systom of and swiched the power to sport mode and laid into the pedal some tire smoke and turbo noise changed my mind quickly as far as reliablity goes i havnt ownes it long enough to see what the pain to pleasure mode brings me.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: the dramatic tire smoke and turbo power

    Cons: parts and labor

    Incredible Sleeper Car. Beauty With The Ability To Out-perform Rival Beamers And Benzs — Not bad for a first car. 2.4 L inline 5, with a single (15g mitsubshi turbo) pushing 14 Lbs of boost stock, making around 245 hp. Handled like a dream, little to no body roll, well done suspension, though perhaps a little bit on the rough side for some, but i loved it.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Incredible, nimble handling, amazing speed for such a small engine.

    Cons: If you want to modify it, it gets pretty ridiculously expensive.

    Not Sure — the only thing bad is that the straight 5 is poor on fuel, and does not have a lot of get up and go. but man it floats along roads and loves to hug corners. it is a great car and I enjoy driving it

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: great car to travel in, handles like a dream

    Cons: not enough power, not great on fuel

    Bottom Line... It's A Great Car. — The car has reached 200,000 miles and still runs smoothly. Only normal wear and tear issues. This car has always been reliable, and has never failed to get me to where I need. It handles decently for a big car, and has decent acceleration. There is only one thing that doesn't work properly on it, and that's the cruse control. I just need to change the control unit.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The fact that it's a family sedan.

    Cons: The gas mileage.

    Great First Car — Good car for a first car. Needs a little work but runs nice. Not what I wanted though, so i might trade it in for a truck. A dodge would be nice. Volvo has 203,019 miles and no rust but no A/C, so i want $1500 for the old girl.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas mileage

    Cons: its a station wagon

    Yes, Its An Estate Car! — Its probably the maddest car I've ever owned, get a huge smile just driving it. Its a really car with 2 personallys, quite happy to potter around town, then keep up with many 'supercars' when need be! I can't praise it high enough

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Being picky, its a touch thirsty

    Volvo 850 T-5r — I have had this car for 5 years now and wanted one as soon as they launched in 1995 but did not have the £35,000 it cost new so waited and promised myself I would own one. The Volvo 850 T5R is amazing, it has great performance and you can still load it up with either people or luggage and get to your destination safely and quickly. The build quality is second to nun with a very solid feel all round, included in this sports version of the 850. The exterior styling is great as it's not too over the top but still has nice 17' alloys and smart sports bumpers front and rear. The interior is full of leather and alcantera and all the options you could think of including air con as well as an electrical sunroof. The car hasn't cost me alot to maintain but if you wanted to modify this car you could spent as much as you could lay your hands on! The thing I love about it is that it is a rare car as I have the manual sedan model in black and alot of them were automatics, not my cup of tea. I get about 25-30 mpg out of the car or 10mpg if you are having fun racing sports cars (which does annoy them!!). I would not sell this car for anything as it is my family's pride of joy. Thanks for reading..

    Pros: Fun to drive, practical and fast.

    Cons: a little bit old now.

    My T-5 R — i was looking for a 7b seater car as i was going to have another kid and needed one but i wanted something fast. i then came across a volvo 850 T-5 R and saw that it had 7 seats. i new the police used the normal T-5 as there fast chase cars so i new the T-5 was fast and as this is the T-5 R witch is basicly the racing version of that i new it would be faster. but i have no idea a car this size could be a fast as it was. and now i have spent thousands modding itm it will wipe the floor with basicly anything i put it up against. totaly wipes the floor with M3,s. so i have the best of both worlds with this car. its a reliable comefatable family 7 seater with all the goodies full leather a suad interior. but its also an amazingly fast car that looks and sounds great. especialy when the huge dump valve goes of LOL. well there your my review of my volvo 850 T-5 R

    Pros: amazingly fast, family 7 seater

    Cons: none
