Re: hi everyone... newbie member (phils94850)

Check on the timing belt change interval. If in doubt, change it now. <br>Is yours an early model with four lug wheels or five lugs?<p>By the way, welcome to volvoland. A safe and fun choice. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

phils94850.........<p><br>Welcome to SS! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> As was mentioned by 64pvovlo....timing belt replacements every 60k miles. Probably a good idea to check all the belts and hoses.........I would recommend an oil change every 4-5k miles with a synthetic blend.....other than that check the 850 forum and you will find lots of good info.<br>We are here to help! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

5 lugs are good. You have alot more options on wheels if you choose to change them. Also, the 5 lugs wheel hubs are more readily available as well as the drive shafts. Good luck with your new brick.
