1991 Volvo 240 4dr Wagon

Review

This is my second 240 wagon, having previously owned a 1987 with over 250k miles. I specifically looked for another, and haven't been disappointed. No, acceleration and handling aren't exciting. What the Volvo 240 does, and does very well, is get you there, every time. I have never felt as safe in any other vehicle in over 20 years of driving. An affordable modern classic, with more interior volume than many SUVs, rock-solid reliability, and 28 mpg on the highway. Who could realistically ask for more?

Best Features

Huge interior volume with the rear seat folded down. Very small turning radius for a car this size. Parts (when needed) are plentiful and inexpensive through the aftermarket. A whole set of good tires cost $200 out the door. Seat heaters.

Worst Features

Acceleration could be better, but I wouldn't trade it for the rock-solid Volvo reliability.
