by CGF on Jul 15, 2004 Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 SE Turbo 4dr Wagon
Was bought in 1998 as a salvage car.
Been hit from the side, but was
undamaged otherwise; Volvo repairman
restored it and sold it at a great
price. As it's gotten older there've
been more repairs, mostly for things
that have worn out. Air conditioning
and tape deck no longer work and there
are problems with the door-locking
system. On the other hand, the int/ext
still look great and it's a very solid
car with 147K miles on it, and no
sign of turbo problems. With regard
to the turbo, we've been religious
about running the engine for a bit
after parking,& have serviced it
regularly. Plan to keep it until
it dies--repair is still less
expensive than new.

I bought this car 5.5 years ago - I
have been rear-ended at least 3 times
with NO damage to the car - bumpers
are indestructable. Body is wearing
great. I'm trading up ONLY because it
is rear wheel drive. If I lived in a
sunny clime I'd keep it! It has more
space with the seats down than a Jeep.
All around great car.
