Review

Where do I start. I was in my 30's and my husband (an EE & Vette guy ) yawned at my boring choice. Fast forward 19+ yrs, he is just elated with Vixen at 325,000 miles, although she periodically needs some money thrown in, Our car doc said it was one of the best models made. Great engineering. We are waiting for a good electric car to come out, and if Vixen should die, we'll buy an old Volvo. This car has been terrific. She boxy, boring, and nothing flashy, but her turning radius is amazing! We love our Vixen


Best Features

Turning Radius is amazing She has a huge trunk


Worst Features

I wish Volvo had kept the engineering quality of the 940 non-turbo

Review

I bought this car used from a co-worker. I drove this car for 40k+ miles with no major issues. It was great on gas, handled excellent, and was very comfortable. I unfortunately totaled it on my birthday a few days ago when someone ran a stop sign. I had a head on collision at 40 mph with the other car and then hit a telephone pole with the side of the car before coming to a stop. This car saved our lives and it will be missed. I have owned lots of cars including BMW, Honda, Toyota, even Hummer and know that none of them would have done this well in an accident. RIP Volvo 940. 164k miles and would have lasted at least 164k more Great car! Looking for another Volvo now.

Review

I just graduated college and started a new job and now I want nothing more than to buy a new car. But I can't justify it because my '95 Volvo 940 just won't die! My parents bought it with 130k mi and I learned to drive on it about 6yrs ago. It's a bit sluggish so I'd recommend the turbo. The only major repairs we've done are a new alternator about 2 yrs ago, new gas pump about 5 yrs ago, and some belts and sensors last year. As long as you do your part to maintain them, they'll keep running for a loooong time. Great car for a teen since they're very safe and they couldn't get a speeding ticket if they tried. Also a great deal for the price.


Best Features

Safety. I was rear ended by someone going about 40mph. Her minivan was totaled. You couldn't tell that I had been in an accident. The turning radius is unbelievable. Very roomy interior, without feeling like you're driving an old Buick. Very reliable with proper maintenance. High quality vehicle.


Worst Features

Rear wheel drive makes it awful to drive in WI winters. My next Volvo will be AWD. Parts can be hard to come by and rather expensive. No get- up-and-go. Even when I floor it, I get smoked by every other car on the road. This is easily fixed with an upgrade to turbo.
