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.


Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements

maybe a little more get up and go,but it's not a must.

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!


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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

There are certainly sexier cars on the the road than Volvo's classic 240 sedan, but few will ever match the reliability and peace of mind you get while driving the 240. The car is built so well that even at 214k miles, it still feels new.


Favorite Features

Engine: Smooth and predictable Interior: Volvo got "utlity" to the letter. The fit and trim are top notch.


Suggested Improvements

While you are no threat to a ferrari, getting on and off the freeway is never a challenge. The trade off is simple. Do you want fast and flashy, or average looks and a life time of reliability?

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Reliable but outdated styling.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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.
