I have a 840Cia from 94 with almost 200.000 Km on it. It is a great car - the 850's are according to my workshop a lot more problematic due to the big engine.
The engine was rebuilt with new pistons - which I think is related to the 94 year only (but not sure), I had a problem with the driver door window (wouldn't close, window going up and down, and alarm would go off) - but that was fixed with switching out some switches. The automatic gearbox is a little rough, and cannot decide which gear to select if forced with fast accelerations (the occasional bang comes to!)- but it is real smooth if driven like a cadillac... The exhaust system was changed once (not the catalysator though) - it held up for 9 years!
The car is great (black with creamcolored lether), and I wouldn't want to change it for anything.
