The 1996 Volvo 850 GLT is part of a solid line of vehicles that was manufactured from 91-96. It was a fantastic platform that was extremely reliable. It was among the best vehicles I've ever owned.
Story
There was plenty of trunk space for all of my camping supplies! I took this thing out to many lakes and rivers for trips.
Pros
The best part about this car was how reliable it was. I didn't have a single mechanical failure the entire time I owned the car. The powertrain was rock solid. Maintaining the vehicle was easy. The oil pan was easily accessible, as were all spark plugs. Even installing new brake pads was easy. It had a solid construction as well. The body was made out of steel as opposed to fiberglass, so most dents and dings were easily fixed. The interior had a classic design, with options for leather seats, power windows/locks, keyless entry, and a wood grain dash. It was all around a sharp looking car.
Cons
While the powertrain was completely solid, there were issues with the coolant system. The radiator had a weak point where it would frequently crack, requiring replacement. As an import car, parts weren't always immediately available, and it required metric tools and numerous torx bits to work on it.

1997 Volvo 850 - Reliable and tough car. Smooth ride.

I like the way that my car rides so smoothly. It gets great gas mileage. The heated seats are great. We have taken many vacations, and it has never let us down. The cons that bug me are that the window and mirror controls are on the center console. I am so used to them being on doors, it is very frustrating at times. But all in all, everything works great. When I kick it into sport mode, my car outpaces all of the others up the mountain passes. Our car has about 300,000 miles on it, and it still purrs like a kitten. The room in the trunk is awesome. I can get a lot of groceries in there. I am not a car person, that is, I don't know specifics about engines, etc.
Story
This car is tough enough to take up into the mountains without a problem.
Pros
Sport mode, heated seats, the smooth suspension. This car is kind of like that commercial advertising hair color for men. It looks mature enough to trust, but young enough that it can still do it.
Cons
As I said before, irks me that the window and mirror controls are in the center console. Highly inconvenient.

We bought this car used 15 years ago. It was in great shape then and still is at 17 years old. We have had to do old-age maintenance in the past couple of years, but that is to be expected. The styling of this old Volvo is boxy and for now, that is not the style, but we like it. At the time of buying this wagon, we loved the look of it as it was clean and fit our style of cars. It has comfortable leather seats; the driver one is automated so the settings for each driver can be fixed and easily reset. It has plenty of head room as well as room to seat five adults comfortably. There are windows all around and being a station wagon, there really are no blind spots in this one. The back seat folds down in order for plenty of space to carry cargo or lumber from the yard or luggage.... (more)
Story
We have been able to travel to special places in this station wagon and remember those journeys. It got us there and back with delightful memories to carry home.
Pros
This car is a GT model, meaning it has a number of options that the plain Jane model does not have. The seat warmers are great when it gets really cold. There are windshield wipers on the headlights and on the back window. The leather seats are adjustable with the driver seat having automated settings for three different drivers, making it easy for each driver to push one button and the seat is back to their favorite way to be comfortable. The car has plenty of room for five adults, plus the back seat will fold down for carrying of extra cargo if there are only two passengers. It work... (more)
Cons
For today's designs, most would consider it too boxy, too square. It is also 17 years old now and that takes away from the value of the car. At this age, it does have old-age issues, but they arise rarely.
