1992 Volvo 240 4dr Sedan

Review

This is my second 240. I have driven the car over 100,000 (it has 177K 3/06) with only minimal problems (one bad fuse, an idling problem, warped rotors, broken door pockets, had to replace factory radio and speakers). We have an independent Volvo mechanic in Kingsport who keeps her on the road. This is not a fast car but it keeps up with traffic pretty well considering its weight and its 4cyl engine. This car is perfect for persons who want something safe to drive and enjoy driving something a little different. If you are knowledgable with auto repair, you'll find that the 240 is easy to maintain. The AC stinks and robs what little horsepower you have.

Best Features

Heater, comfortable seats, styling, gauges, responsive automatic transmission with seamless shifts.

Worst Features

More power (114 hp is not enough), door pockets that don't break immediately after replacing them. I wish Volvo would get on the retro bandwagon (ala HHR and PT Cruiser) and make these tanks again!
