1990 Volvo 240 4dr Wagon

Review

Long lasting! Mine's at 260000. I am a heavily-equiped carpenter and this car carries more than most trucks. I use Thule gutter-mounted removable racks that allow me to put just about anything on the top-- hundreds of pounds. And hundreds of pounds of tools inside and still get over 20 mpg. Bought a newer Econoline to give the Volvo a rest but regret that the big Ford even w/ a smaller than average V6 only gets 15 mpg with the same load. And the Volvo goes faster and looks nice. Expect some rust and small fix ups at this age. Still keeping it for personal use and longer trips.

Favorite Features

Longevity and great looks and comfort. The Volvo 'turning circle' is smaller than just about any other car...will park easily.

Suggested Improvements

plastic lenses on headlights need to be replaced or 'buffed' (try 3000 grit polish if you can find it). heater motor fails. Watch for rust.
