1994 Volvo 940 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car as a backup to my 1986 740 wagon which had 420,000 miles on it at the time. The 740 is still fine even after 440,000 (original engine and manual transmission) but I drive the 940 every other day just to keep it 'fresh.' When I got it at 107,000, the 940 was as close to mint condition as it could be. It was babied by the previous owner. I put in new radiator, timing belt, mass air flow meter and a few little things and it runs like a Swiss watch. My gas mileage averages about 25 in everyday driving, 30 on long trips, which is pretty good all things considered. I really like these rear drive Volvos. It feels like you're driving a safe down the road.

Favorite Features

Great seats, surprisingly good handling, great ride, smooth engine and transmission

Suggested Improvements

Plastic interior bits are weak

The only way you're getting 30 mpg is with a tail wing at 50mph with cruise control FYI! 24/25 is typical highway mpg @ 65-70!
