Vehicle1995 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan
ReviewOne of 3 Volvos (89-740T, 940T &97- 850), we put 100k miles on this one. My wife does the majority of driving (15- 18k mi/yr) for work and short family trips. We needed room for 2 child seats & grandmother so good rear seat/trunk space were critical. Mostly minor maintenance (oil, gas), two sets of brake rotors (wobbles) required, one timing belt (133k mi) - not too bad overall. The B230 turbo motor is one of Volvo's best and it worked great for us. Once the Turbo spins up (lots of lag) there's plenty of power to move the very solid feeling car around. Has the famous Volvo turning circle (better than 850). Very solid and mostly reliable car.
Best FeaturesVery comfortable front seats (especially for long drives), very good sounding stereo, lots of rear seat and trunk space, great turning circle, better than 20MPG. Solid and safe feeling. Turbo still spining strong at 135k miles.
Worst FeaturesBrake wobbles were a pain and rotor replacement is expensive. Possible electrical issues - light bulbs burn out regularly and we had a quirky radio. Cooling system is starting to see issues (radiator and AC leaks)
