1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan

Review

I purchased this car new in 1990 and to date have put on 254,000 miles, and it still is going strong. I expect to drive it for at least another 25,000, perhaps 50,000 miles. I've never had a problem with reliability. I service it every 5,000 miles without fail, changing the oil and following Volvo's maintenance schedule. Before I purchased my present car, I had a 240DL rear ended by a van. My trunk was destroyed, one-half of my rear seat was crushed, all four tires exploded, but my passenger and I walked away unhurt. Volvo is a safe car. I keep putting off a new car because my old Volvo continues to run without complaint.

Best Features

Simplicity and reliability. In its staid and understated way, it is elegant. No bells and whistles, but who needs or wants them. An extremely safe car, with a crash zone that works.

Worst Features

Improve the rear light housings; they leak. The audio system should be improved; Volvo speakers are not very good. Don't sacrifice safety design for marketing fluff.
