Is this the really big one for the 850 Turbo? If so wat needs to be done to the car? some of the things that will be changed due to problems in the car, is the gear position lights, the air hose that regulates the flow of air into the car when the fan is off is broken and dangles around in there. Possibly a bad rear suspension that squeaks, and the sun roof needs a little oiling. Ride needs to be sealed up a little more because of major wind noise, and that's about all I can think of. Oh also that we'll probably get the guys to make sure the car has less rattles.

i'll be there in about 15,000 miles. I've replaced the pads, rotors, exhaust, air intake system, struts, motor mount(s), and I have the cv boots I have to replace this weekend. It's worth it, though, 'czuse when you see the face on kids when a Volvo kills them, you want to keep the car in pristine condition!<P><P>

Well, I now have 200576 miles on my 94 854 T5. To date I have replaced nearly every bulb in the car, I have had to replace a broken roll-pin in the sunroof, replace passenger side A-arm (ball joint was bad), all brakes, all intercooler hoses, all vacuum hoses, shifter microswitch and solenoid, brake light switch, T-stat, plugs, cap, rotor, wires, trans fluid, exhaust tip, power antenna, headlight lenses, engine oil dip-stick, turbo control valve, turbo signal sensor, all rubber elbows, and some little things which I have forgotten. BUT...here is the thing...it was all 110% worth it all. If I kept track of all the times my car had made me smile, grin, smirk, giggle, laugh, and just wallow in joy, the parts and labor would not even come close! In all, the cost of ownership for these cars is not as cheap as an Accord, but at the same time this is not an Accord either. It's a mean ass sleeper with a professional image, real functionality, and safety. It is an all-inclusive package! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>Oh and please don't ask what all I have replaced as a performance or aesthetic upgrade as the list will be very, very long. The repairs are nothing compared to the mods!<P>Prospero<BR>
