1997 Volvo 850 GLT

Volvo 850 GLT (1997)
for sale

Price: US $2,000.00


I've got a 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Turbo Wagon for sale. I've owned it for the last three years and have sunk quite a bit into it and its good to go. While its an older car, it drives like a champ. It has a solid feel and is surprisingly quiet for its size. But, its older, so it has good and bad points:
The Good
1) New Battery
2) New Front Shock Absorbers and Assemblies
3) Added New Cabin Air Filter
4) New Air Blower
5) New Steering Wheel Horn Connector
6) New Wiper Blades
--previous owner added the following before sale--
1) New Oil Cooler Lines
2) New Belts
3) New Spark Plugs
4) New Brakes and Pads
5) New Air Filter
6) New Vacuum and Coolant Hoses where needed
7) New EVAP and Secondary Air System for Collin County Emissions
8) New Tires
9) New Wiper Blades and Arms
10) New Front and Rear Lamp Bulbs
11) New seals and gaskets where needed
12) New Steering Rack
13) New Suspension and Control Arms, Front and Back
The Bad
1) Wear and Tear on the Leather and Body commensurate with the age of the vehicle
2) Small oil leak at the Turbo. I end up topping the oil off with a quart every other month.
3) AC coolant leak. I end up topping the Freon off every 6 mos. to keep it blowing ice cold (Search amazon for R-134a)
4) The Odometer was damaged but is now fixed. This is a known issue. I repaired it with the kit, took it to the shop to read the true mileage, and set it again.
This car would be great for a first time driver or high schooler prepping for college. The wagon rear seats flip forward and can haul a ton. It is also a Volvo, which set the standard for vehicle safety.
