Looking at purchasing a 1995 Volvo 850 (base), auto, no moonroof, no leather, has steal wheels with hubcaps. The good thing is it only has 12,381 miles (original) documented. What should I look for, any issues, how are they in general. Looking for a basic reliable transport for a second car/son to drive. Thanks.

Re: 1995 Volvo 850 - need info (Blurry)

You need to look at ALL seals, all the rubber and fluids.<br>This could have a lot of problems because of old, separated/degraded fluids such as <B>tranny fluid,</B> brake fluid, coolant, etc.<br>I would guess this will have brake problems if nothing else.<br>Tires <B>will</B> be dry rotted, rubber door seals will probably be bad, etc.<br>Extreme lack of use as this one is can be worse than high miles!<br>It also depends on how properly it was stored (if it was)!
