1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan
I bought my '90 240 DL less than a
year and I have mixed feelings about
it. Overall, its a very solid car, I was
hit on the side by a BMW Z3 and only
got a minor dent while the Z3's front
end was wrecked. Its fuel economy
is not impressive, I average 16mpg
city driving. Its rear wheel-drive tends
to slip easily on snowy roads. Ride is
comfortable and handling is smooth
even though pickup is slow. So far I
have to replace quite a few parts and
they are not cheap.
Heated, comfortable seats. Central
locking. Solid, sturdy built.
Better gas mileage, better handling
on snowy, rainy roads.
