1993 Volvo 240 Wagon 4dr Wagon


Review

Bought in 2003 to replace 1991 Volvo 245, which was in a "head on", and my wife walked away with bruises only! Have owned this car for almost 5 years, and it has been very reliable and simple to work on. Getting a mechanic who has a long history working exclusively on Volvo is a must! It is not fast, but very very solid and safe. Great for a young family.


Best Features

Reliability, low cost of ownership, great utility vehicle, best turning radius of any car ever made, built like a Sherman Tank


Worst Features

Does not have great power, rear gate wiring harnesses are poorly designed (replaced often), mapholders break very easily.

Review

My fiance bought this cutie for me as a "Mothership" to haul my daughters. I took several BMWCCA drivers training schools in her. We named her Greg's Gift and we really miss the security she provided. Our daughter Kelli used "GG" as her daily driver. Kelli was recently involved in a bad accident and walked away without only a scratch. We would strongly reccomend a 240.


Best Features

Rocks and rolls. Great steering. Lots of protection.


Worst Features

Better seats (comfort for long drives).

Review

The best all around car I have ever owned. It'll haul everything. It gets around 25mpg on the highway and will out turn the Toyotas, Hondas and VWs I've owned. If someone hits it, they'll be the ones getting towed away. Parts are cheaper that a lot of other cars. Be careful to find a mechanic that understands them. My Volvo has been fairly inexpensive to own. I love it. It's more like a family member than just a car.


Best Features

It's as big as a house. The rear seats fold down flat and make cargo loading very easy. Dogs love it.


Worst Features

The map trays in the doors break very easily.

Review

Bought the car used a year ago. After an initial problem with the cat conv. the car has been a work horse and a pleasure to drive. I added the IPD bars and the car has an amazing turning radius for a big car. It hauls dogs and home depot trips in all weather with no complaints. Easily does 80 mph highway, 0-60 can take awhile from the 4 hard-working cyls.


Best Features

LOTS of room, comfy, safety. 20mpg local driving


Worst Features

More power!!

Review

I bought this car on eBay out of a used car dealer in upstate NY and learned some lessons: Pin the seller down on particulars about the car's history, pay less than market if you cannot see the car, be extra wary when buying on line cars. Overall, it is a nice car, a real collector's car as it is a "Classic" 245 of a true limited production model. Wish I'd bought it in 1993!!


Best Features

gas mileage 20-24mpg classic lines exterior very practical and versatile usage very safe car CFC a/c and blows cold!!!


Worst Features

better longevity in brake pads/rotors better ride better electrical reliability
