1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Wagon

Review

My Volvo has run perfectly for almost 13 years. Since the warranty expired I spend an average of $400 annually for maintenance and repairs. Good mechanics are hard to find. But I spend less annually on repairs than my father does with his much newer Chrysler. Avoid power features if you can. The power windows are getting slower and slower and the central locks and cruise control had to be repared last year. The body and original paint are still in awesome shape, most of my friends can't believe that this car is 13 years old.

Best Features

The interior space is outstanding. 240s inspire devotion amongst their owners. I love the square styling and the commaraderie that I have with all of the other 240DL drivers on the road. I routinely get stopped in parking lots by people who tell me stories of their old Volvos.

Worst Features

Occasionally some trim has been know to fall off. I've replaced many pieces and parts are getting scarce.
