I just hit 200k a few days ago! The leather seats had a few stitches come loose, had a few plastic moldings crack in the interior but other than normal wear and tear, the car is outstanding. I don't doubt that this car will last me 'til I hit 400k miles!

This is a car you really have to get into as an owner. You can't just drive it just to drive it, you have to really learn about it to operate it properly. It's an older car, so at times we'd have our mornings with the cold weather and the engine turning over but only for a few seconds. It's a very strongly built car and can handle through most anything if you have the tires for it. :) I would suggest this as a first car to any teenager because it helps to teach responsibility. I've put loads of work into this car to get it where it is today and it runs like a champ! I even take it out and autocross it on weekends. Volvos are well-built cars. Like tanks. And I've loved mine.

I have owned 6 differant volvos and my
1990 740 gle is my familys favorite. It
has classic styling, very nice looking
and fun to drive. I am looking for
another, would really like a 5 spd.
Safe reliable and necer goes out of
style, the 16 valve motor is very fast
and the car handles beautifully. The
only complaint is rear wheel skidding
in wet weather due to torque. All in
all the fastest truck on the road.
