Review

I really love my 240! You can drive a 240 comfortably at 80mph. I installed a cam shaft from IPD USA and the engine gained 15HP. Volvos are legendary for winter driving. The 240 is a very stable car because its weight is split 50/50 front/rear. As for parts, find a scrap yard, you can get parts really cheap there. You won't loose any time disassembling parts unlike many modern cars you have room! As for Volvo dealers, don't go there for maintenance, they will rip you off! As for rust, VERY IMPORTANT check for water infiltrations on the seal joint around the dash! Use Synthetic oil and you'll be good for a million miles! Dju

Favorite Features

Winter driving A+++, very comfortable, room for legs on the back seat, at 80 mph, the engine is going at 2700 rpm with standard shift.

Suggested Improvements

An automatic transmission that shift at 3000-3500 rpm instead of 2000rpm! Good advice: get standard shift. A 130- 140 hp engine like the 740 16-valves or the 740 turbo, otherwise, buy the cam shaft from IPD USA...
