Best value older used car

Vehicle: 1992 Volvo 740 GL 4dr Wagon

Very safe, reliable, comfortable, roomy and practical! About 26 freeway mpg and 19 city. High build quality, roomy as a modern suv & scan design! Only a few black boxes to go bad and cheap to insure! Collectible now! 1992 best year-has SIPS, geared taller and later engine & features!




17 years and still running

Vehicle: 1992 Volvo 740 4dr Wagon

Bought the car new in 92 in Germany. My wife was pregnant with our daughter. She is now driving it. We've been stationed in Germany, Miami, Biloxi, Lubbock, Charleston, the Azores and back to Charleston with this car. It runs like a champ. The only problems have been cooling system related and a new computer. Too bad they don't make them like this any more.




272k

Vehicle: 1992 Volvo 740 Turbo 4dr Wagon

Bought this car used in 1998 with 163K on it. I drive it daily and it now has 272K on it. It does eat brakes but I drive it hard. Solved most of the brake problems by installing cross drilled ventilated racing brake rotors and matching racing pads. The front struts blew recently out, and I had to rebuild most of the front end. It now drives like you are on rails! I use Mobil 1 Synthetic oil only with a Mann filter change every 5,000 miles. The engine still runs strong and has never been opened for any major repairs. The way the interior is designed you can put just about anything inside or on top. A comfortable, reliable work horse. They really don't make them like this anymore!

The best

by on
Vehicle: 1992 Volvo 740 4dr Wagon

i am on the road 5 to 6 days per week and have had these predictable vehicles since the early 80's. what i am sure of from exposure, is that if i ever get into an acident, i will walk away and live to talk about it. these cars are very predictable and reliable, and no they are NOT expensive to maintain or repair. but please do yourself a huge favor and search out a repair facility/dealer who does know these cars and or LIKES to work on them. i have found this to the best advice i have ever been given in my many years behind the wheel. don,t ever be apprehensive about these cars, just find the one you like get your best price and drive it! you'll never where it out, this is my 2nd HIGH mileage volvo




Great old box

Vehicle: 1992 Volvo 740 Turbo 4dr Wagon

My 740 Turbo has 197,000+ plus miles on it but is still a great machine. Great acceleration. This thing leaves newer and sportier looking cars in the dust. It did 0-60 in 7.8 according to road tests of the day. Not bad. The handling is also nice. Quick to respond, great turning radius, and overall fun to drive. A little too much body lean perhaps but still good. Very comfy car on long trips and you can fit a ton of stuff in the back. Fuel economy and noise are concerns.
