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
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.
More power for the 4 cylinder engine. It has trouble making its way up mountains.
It’s broken down in NJ, it’s
broken down in PA, and it’s broken down
in OH. Belts break, hoses bust, tape
player eats tapes and locks up, sun
roof would not open for months, but
now, inexplicably, does. Roof leaks
during washing. I don’t know the number
of times this car has broken down. .
But there are some good aspects to this
car. Storage. Everywhere. And it’s good
to throw strollers in the back. But, so
many bad things. And it clunk clunk
clunks into second gear (automatic).
Not a very quick car, but that is OK.
Storage, power windows, nice sound
Hire better engineers and learn how to
test stuff so it stops breaking. Sheesh.
