Hi everybody!<br>I'm looking at a 1994 850 Wagon. It has 134k miles. It looks to be pretty well loaded and it's extremely clean. It's a really neat dark greenish blue. I love everything about it besides the basketweave wheels. Well, all that's beside the point. I don't really know anything mechanical about the car besides it's a 5 cylinder non-turbo. After reading a ton of threads in here I've found a plethora of info on the turbo models, but not much about the standard engine/auto tranny. I'd like to suck up as much knowledge about the car as possible before I talk to the owner again. Specs, stats, common problems, anything. Thanks a lot!<p>JZ

The flame trap on NA models frequently needs servicing.<p>Most of the information still holds too, with the exception of the turbo system.

Oh, those dimensions and weight are actually for the sedan. The wagon is a tad heavier and little bit longer. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
