1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan

Review

The 240 has a strong (as in reliable) engine, and is purportedly safe, but that is it. The engine is anemic and roars like an 18 wheeler in the lower gears. Handling reminds me of a large moving van. The seats are not comfortable, and at some point all of the interior trim pieces get brittle and explode on contact. The exterior trim pieces have a habit of falling off too. I have had two of these (long story), both "wine" red, and both paint jobs have faded badly. The exterior styling inspires only extended yawns; espcially ugly are the large plastic headlights. I have owned a lot of cars, these are by far the least fun to drive.

Favorite Features

Reliable engine. Safe. You can pretend you're a Swedish viking or something.

Suggested Improvements

Push the car off a cliff and start over.
