1991 Volvo 740 4dr Wagon


Review

This car is remarkable, it's made it almost a half of a million miles and still pulls hard, that turbo kicks hard and combined with a manual gear box and rear wheel drive it gets fun, it's actually a lot of fun. It puts a smile on my face every time I drive it even after all these years and miles, it's fast yet practical, spacious yet sporty, understated boxy appearance makes its a "sleeper" I would never drive anything else, I own nothing but Volvos, my girlfriend drives an 850 base and I also own an 850R the newer ones are okay but front wheel drive kills the soul of the brick. Avoid any Volvo newer than '98 when Ford got involved, they're money pits. Stick to the brick and you can't go wrong

Review

I am the third owner of my 1991 Volvo 740 Wagon and I could not have asked for such a great first car. I got it about 5 years ago and I have put on almost 100,000 miles on it since. A few problems with the fuel pump and the front suspension, but other than that it has been a great car. Getting close to 300,000 miles on it and it is running great. Just make sure to change oil every 3,000 miles. It will last forever


Best Features

Having a sunroof is awesome to have since it doesnt have air conditioning. I drive a lot so cruise control is also another one of my favorite features. Overall the layout of the interior is very simple and not complicated.


Worst Features

More power for the 4 cylinder engine. It has trouble making its way up mountains.

Review

Great handling - still very tight
suspension. Great brakes. Engine and
transmission still running very smoothly


Best Features

Brakes, handling, reliability


Worst Features

Hard to keep idle from being too rough. Interior doesn't hold up like the drivetrain. Plastic can't handle the southern heat

Review

I invested in Volvo in 1991 with
considerable money. I had two new
children and thought I was investing
in safety and quality. I am one to
drive a car for its full life (i.e.10 -
15 years).


Best Features

The seat warmers were about the only feature that never had a problem.


Worst Features

The car was a disaster. The only improvement I would suggest - make a car worth it's price tag.
