This volvo is a very reliable ride though the performance is 100% terrible, it weighs so much that it can not accelerate or corner on par with any other car. But volvo's are not performers, they are life savers, and the 240DL is a tank. If all that you are looking for a safe and reliable car and you could care less about performance and looks, this car is for you.
Reliable engine(it can handle to be abused), and the saftey features for its time.
Electrical system has many flaws, air conditioning system is a joke, low end torque is terrible.
