1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Wagon
Review
I purchased this wagon with 225k miles on the odometer to move from Iowa to Alaska in 2005. Did most of the work myself to prep the car for the trip, and made the trip, pulling a full trailer, without problem. Currently at 256k miles. Great in winter with good snow tires, huge hauling capacity, all right gas mileage with an automatic (thinking about swapping in a manual) 20-22 around town, 25-29 highway. As mentioned elsewhere, easy to work on, built to last, safe, handles well with turbo sway bars. Interior plastic getting fragile with age, but the car is moving in on being 20 years old. All things considered, a fantastic car.
Favorite Features
Comfort, reliability, safety, online community support and parts availability, invisibility to police.
Suggested Improvements
If you have one you plan to keep or are thinking about one, consider purchasing european ecode lights to replace the cruddy stock plastic headlights. Find a good center armrest. Know that there are additional adjustments for the front seats to raise/lower the seat base front and back. Enjoy!
