The Swedish Washer/Dryer

1992 Volvo 240 GL 4dr Sedan

Review

As mentioned earlier, find a good local mechanic to fix this car and stay away from the dealer or prepare to be taken to the cleaners! You may run into oil leak troubles with this model. Mine's been leaking slowly for five years and five different mechanics have been unable to fix it except for very short stretches. I paid $4K for this car when it had 70K original miles. Not a bad deal but I've put at least $5K into it over six years so it's affectionately known as the $9,000 washer/dryer. This car isn't cheap to fix but overall it's been reliable (no major repairs and it's going on 209K miles)! The single most expensive repair bill was $1,300 for various items around 150K miles.

Favorite Features

Heater, fuel injection (makes a four- cyl feel like a slow six), interior styling, solid metal body (no fiberglass), sunroof, head rests, feels solid overall and has nice-sized trunk (overall, feels very elegant inside) and it's fun to drive with the added XM2Go Satellite Radio!

Suggested Improvements

Add cupholders, airbag broken, stronger AC, plastic exterior trim is feeble and interior plastic door frames crack easily, sunroof leaks (but only when put through an automatic carwash--it's fine in torrential rain).
