1991 Volvo 740 Wagon 4dr Wagon


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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Storage, power windows, nice sound system.


Worst Features

Hire better engineers and learn how to test stuff so it stops breaking. Sheesh.
