Re: Value of an 850 (cheebiechi)

Go to KBB.com or any other reputable source for used-car pricing. If you intend to trade it in, feel free to deduct 20-25% from the value your source provides. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Value of an 850 (JoeLvo)

Do NOT go to KBB, that book is absolutely the worst, most inflated price book out there!<br>REAL book value, it's worth next to nothing (2 to 3 grand), but to a <B>Volvo enthusiast</B> it's worth roughly between $5000 and $7500.<br>If it's<I> "in a wrapper" </I>perhaps a bit more. However, if, in reality, it's not all <I>that </I>nice, perhaps less! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>It all depends on how it REALLY is (it seems you don't really know Volvos), you need someone like myself or several others here that could tell you how good it really is.<p><B>Several good pictures, inside and out, including the engine would surely help</B><p>You have to remember it's a 15 year old car and not worth much of anything to anyone (except we morons here who love these cars!) <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Not to burst your low mile bubble, but another thing to consider is that the 850's have a tiny gear that goes bad and the odometer will stop functioning. It's happened to both 850's i've owned in the past.<br>

The yellow 850 T5-R is a rare car, which makes it worth more to volvo lovers out there. That said, to any only Joe, it is going to be in the 3000 dollar range.
