I bought my first 240 in 1998, a '93 manual 5 speed Wagon.
Previously I had driven other cars and
wagons including Funeral Coaches and Limos.
The ride from the Volvo wagon was superior to those other long jobs!
Incredible comfort and a joy to drive, even as a stick shift.
I still love it and won't part with it because it is the best vehicle I have ever owned!
Recently I bought an '89 Sedan on Ebay for $400.00!
It still looks new! Same with the wagon, I really don't want to part with it. If you get a chance to buy one, do so!
'88-93 are the best models. The reviews here are all TRUE! Why did Volvo stop? Who knows!
The wagon still gives a better ride than the sedan in my opinion.
