I recently bought a 1997 black/black 850 R sedan. It had 670 miles on it!!!! I found it on autotrader.com and then visited the dealership (Paul's Motors, Inc. - Volvo), which I highly recommend. Chris Corrigan, the sales consultant, was a pleasure to deal with. I absolutely love it even though I originally wanted a R wagon. The interior was still wrapped in the original factory plastic!!! None of the 5 rims had any type of imperfection and the engine was clean as a whistle. The carfax report also came back clean. It came with a 2 year Volvo VIP warranty b/c the factory warranty already expired since it was originally sold in 11/1996. Just wanted to thank all of you on this messsage board who took the time to respond to my questions. I really do appreciate all of your help. I hope to post some of the many pictures I took soon. By the way....the "R" now has about 1200 miles on it.
