Great car for low price

by on
Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan

This is my first car but not the only one I drive on a regular basis. The turning circle is awesome and the car starts every time. Engine is okay once the turbo spools, but fairly weak before that. Interior is comfortable but needs cup holders. While the car isn't what one might refer to as beautfiul, it doesn't look bad and keeps you from getting noticed. Handling is decent with a bit more body roll than I'd like, but it's 13 years old already. Understeer is controllable and the limited slip rear diff is really useful. Few mechanical issues even with 170k miles.




Great car - very reliable

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan

This was (and is) our first Volvo purchase. we bought it used at 60,000 miles. Were worried about turbo going out at 120K, etc. We are now at 169,000 miles with almost NO problems. (the power antenna broke and the brakes need frequent replacing because of weight of car). But otherwise, incredibly reliable, comfortable. We are due for an upgrade but just can't seem to say goodbye to such a great car.




Too bad no more rwd

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan

We bought this car new and it has been excellent. Plenty of room for 5 adults for long trips. Handling is typical Volvo which means the car will go where you point it and stop when needed. We have used Mobil 1 since new, so the turbo should last. Present mileage is 115K. I do much of the work and oil changes are the easiest of any car I have ever owned. Volvo 4s are easily accessable. Interesting replacements and repairs: Sunroof stuck open ($68 at the dealer) Power stering pump Rear springs Rotors lasted about 100K. Recommend switching to 225/50/16 tires. They are cheaper than what comes on the car and give a better contact patch.




Great comfort, reliability, safety

Vehicle: 1991 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan

This is a well-built car. Providing great comfort, excellent reliability, and legendary safety, what Volvo are known for. I'm very impressed with the roominess and driver's visibility of the road inside the Volvo. Its turning circle is extremely small. The car is running at 190,000 miles with absolutely no sign of any mechanical problems. And my wife admitted that it has a smoother ride than her 1999 Camry at 40,000 miles
