Review

I've had 4 BRICKS, '90-240-wagon, '99-XC, '04-XC and just last week a '93-240 Classic 4dr sdn. Total mileage to date 650K, yes six hundred and fifty thousand miles...You can't beat these cars not even with a big stick...all the woman in this family drive them and swear by them! Only problem is if your over 6'tall it's a struggle to get in and out of. beware RUST! No rust...undercoat and clean out drainage ports. Buy um while you can find them! That's a fact Jack!


Best Features

As the deli guy said...it's just a nice car....you can goose it up as much as you want...it's just a nice car.


Worst Features

If some one knows how to expand the driver's leg room....share it sister/brother

Review

When I bought my '93 240 from a private party it needed brakes, muffler, tires, battery, some a/c work and a general tuneup (plugs, filters, etc., but no major engine or tranny work was required). Now I routinely get 24-26 mpg @ 70 mph, mostly hiway miles. The car feels strong, maintains whatever speed I dial in, handles without surprises, and while is not the most fun ride, will take me where I want to go comfortably & safely. Two plusses: driver's seat position is excellent for a short person, easy to work on. Downside: while parts are easy to get, they are somewhat pricier than similar parts for a domestic. If you require a dependable, comfortable daily driver, consider this older Volvo.

Review

I have had mine almost ten years and
have loved it every minute. Have had
NO problems with it. Scared to buy
another volvo because I know another
one will never live up to what this car
did for me.

Review

Reliable but outdated styling. Very
loud and poor performing A/C if you
live in warmer climates. Excellent and
fast heating for cooler climates. Poor
acceleration but handles on roads very
well.


Best Features

The turning radius on the 240 is fantastic. Better then any other full size car. Makes it extremely easy for parking.


Worst Features

1993 was last year for 240 model. It served its purpose and Volvo then moved on. One improvement they could have made was using better quality plastic inside vehicle arround map holders. Craked and broke very easy.
