1993 Volvo 940 Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

If you have the chance of buying one of these with extremely low mileage, or at least below 100K, do it... particularly if it's a one-owner.
Last of the rear wheel drive Volvos, built like nothing else, dependable, and easy to fix and diagnose.
It will give you years and years more of faithful service, and doesn't really look that bad because even back in the day when I bought mine new, it wasn't stylish because it was built for function with tremendous materials like leather and paint on mine.
Mileage isn't startling by today's standards, but I still average 23 overall and maintenance isn't a big thing with the electronic ignition.
Even if the timing belt breaks it won't destroy the engine because it's what's referred to as a "run free" engine. It happened to me once and all that had to be done at the time of the new belt was to align the notches for the cam and crankshaft and reinstall a new timing belt.

Review

This has been the best car we ever
owned. She has 131,000 miles on her
and drives like the day we first
brought her home. Maintenance costs
are reasonable. If you do the
preventative maintainence, this car
will run forever. Don't buy a new
Volvo if you're thinking about it. We
purchased a 2000 S70 thinking we'd get
similar reliability and it turned out
to be an absolute lemon. The
dealership in Dallas also sucks.
Their mechanics are clueless. If
you're in Orlando, you can't go wrong
with the Winter Park dealership.


Best Features

Reliability times 10. This car never lets you down.


Worst Features

More engine power. I think my neighbor's riding mower would be blow the doors off our 940 in a race.
