Great design, great execution

1994 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Wagon
Excellent: reliability, serviceability, visibility, 5-seat comfort (incl the best headrests), trunk space (esp with flat-folded seats), steering, handling (I upgraded to IPD sway bars, poly bushings, chassis braces, Bilstein shocks, 16" wheels), 51/49 f/r distribution and light weight makes the car very predictable. Mileage is fine if you accelerate softly and keep speeds below 65. 4 spd trans isn't efficient above 70, but the car is fine well above that. Controls are intuitive. Sunroof is huge. Paint is robust. Towing is strong. The car's design and capabilities have not been improved on... it's unique and excellent even 15 years and 180,000 miles on the road.
Balanced handling, excellent steering, great cornering, gas pedal modulation is precise, excellent rear seat design, usable trunk space.
European headlights, IPD sway bars, Cherry Turbo upper/lower chassis braces, Bilstein HD shocks, 16 wheels, HK TrafficPro GPS Navigation head unit, 400W 5 channel amp, Motorola BT phone kit, 12" sealed subwoofer installed in under-trunk storage space.
