1992 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had this car since 2002. It has 250,000 on it now. I purchased it at 176,000. The major problem is the timing belt change every 30,000. I have done 3 so far. I also had to replace the compressor when I purchased it. Recently I had to replace tubing leading to the gas tank because it was leaking gas. Other than that it has been routine maintenance. It is the best car I have ever had. Now I have to add a quart between oil changes which is not bad for a 250K car. I hope I can buy another 960 used with low mileage when this one goes down. I am hoping to make it to 300K.


Best Features

Smooth ride; good power; firm handling. I still have the original paint that still shines.


Worst Features

They have stopped making this model. I think the timing belt was improved in later models.

Review

I will never buy a volvo again. I don't
know why everyone thinks they're such
great cars. In less than 6 months at
76,000 I had to replace blown heater
lines, the bearing that holds the drive
shaft (so it wouldn't bang against the
bottom of the car), a blown head gasket
(stupid aluminum engine), and an
endless headache of electrical
problems: power roof switch, dash
lights going out, and drivers side
heated seat stopped heating. Under the
hood the electrical is crap, too. The
interior quality is crap, too. The trim
would come loose and it had tons of
squeeks and rattles.


Best Features

Ignoring the rattles and when everything was working, the ride was smooth and the engine had plenty of power. Also the seats were very comfortable and the interior is very roomy. The turning radius is wicked.


Worst Features

Reliability, gas mileage, electrical systems.

Review

The last of the rear wheel drive volvo
(later called S/V90) Truely a perfect
combination of power and comfort.
Smooth inline 6 aluminum engine
producing 200HP (1995+models
dropped to 180HP -cam profile
changed to higher torque at lower
RPM)

The nivomats suspention provides
supirior ride quality even with a full
load (1030LBS)

Priority maintainance:Timming belt
(30K)!!!!

Well made Sweedish machine. Design flaws result from bureaucratic enigma!

Review

This is the car of all cars when it
comes to comfort, safety, and
performance. I can drive this car
all-day-long, and still look forward
driving the next day.


Best Features

All.


Worst Features

Better lighting on main lights, fog lights really help, but still could use more light output.
