Hello everyone. I would like to introduce myself. I just today purchased my first volvo. Its a 1997 850 T-5 w/ 115K. Black with dark grey interoir. My mother has had 2 volvos herself when I was growing up so I have always liked them. I am coming over from the VW/Audi and the 4X4 Jeep world. This volvo has the typical stripped odometer gear so the odometer doesnt work but the speedo does. The car is pretty clean. I picked it up for $6800. There are some stupid things that I want to get fixed. The prior owner bought the car from his sister that purchased brand new in 97. He had every record for everything that his sister and he had done to the car. It pulls strong and just about everything works. Well I will be around to be asking plenty of questions. Is there a bentley manual for these cars or what? What is the best form of repair manual? I would love to read up in that! Later!
