I have been in the automotive industry for over thirty years and I can say that this wagon, if properly maintained will not fail you or yours. The piece of mind you receive in terms of safety has no equal.
I've seen these cars rolled, samashed and crushed and 99% of them had room to live.
These cars have a time tested history of safety and reliability. Forget buying one after 1994.
Rwd drive is the way to go as all the drive componets are in alignment.
A very simplistic approach to good enginneering and design.
It is not unusual to see these cars still on the road with over 400K on them.
Make a wise choice, buy one with maint. history and love it and it will go as long as you wish.
The 1994 Volvo Turbo Wagon has no equal in terms of looks, performance and most important, safety.
Ask any scapyard how difficult it is to crush one in the press.
This alone indicates the overall strength of the vehicle.
Moreover, you can get out of the car after a long trip and actually walk.
Volvo in Swedish means, "long life."
Get the picture?
The 700 series are almost identical so, you have choices and the performance of both the 700 turbo, and the 900's are near identical.
I wish I could purchase new one's.
They are bargins!
You can land a very nice 940 turbo with low miles for a mere 2500.00 to 4500.00 So, you can buy new and spend alot or you can get one of these Volvo's.
