Classic car but has flaws

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 SE Turbo 4dr Sedan

We bought a '91 940 Turbo from a family friend who took very well of his cars, and we continued the regular maintenance. It is a heavy car, which is safe but hard on gas and acceleration. It was disaster to drive when gas was $4+ a gallon. Currently there are a lot of things wrong: interior roof covering is falling apart, the odometer stopped working at 160k, the turbo is stuck on, etc. And I've been stranded 3 times in the past few months from a range of engine problems. Now the engine dies at 50+mph, apparently from a blown converter. I am selling it because it is no longer worth the money put into it. These issues are a shame, because I love the look and design of this early 90s Volvo.

The 940 has always been a joy to drive. It holds the road extremely well. It has a great deal of power both for acceleration. It has a large passenger cabinet very well appointed. The trunk is very large and the standard Volvo trunk to passenger cabin has been extremely useful many times for transporting sailing booms, skis, lumber and other long stuff!

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 SE Turbo 4dr Sedan

Great second car and extremely reliable vehicle overall. Very handsome styling and the SE version is very well built with self leveling rear shock absorbers. Its a great daily driver and I would recommend one highly for anyone looking to get a family sedan. Power is good but not great, however once at highway speed its a great cruiser and accelerates well.




A classy, comfortable car!

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 SE Turbo 4dr Sedan

I have had several Volvo vehicles, all WAGONS. This is the first sedan I've owned, and was pleasantly suprised. The wagons handled very predictably, and I did not expect that from a sedan. I am impressed with the vehicle. I bought it w/ 108K on it; I expect to run it at least another 100K before I replace it. The turbo motor has been further refined, and the vehicle shamelessly is heads above the newer 850 series, in performance, comfort, and mileage. The newer 850series have a definite Audi-ish flavor, but the 940 series retains the Volvo image and feel that the manufacturer is well known for. I prefer it to the 850's. Better pickup; response and style.
