I've had my 960 wagon for a few years and the only problems I've had have been caused by mechanics who lacked the intelligence needed to get the job done right the first time. After 10 model years, it is superior to just about every new car available for under $40K. It's the ultimate road trip car, and works suprisingly well in the winter with a round of snow tires. The paint job on this car is outstanding too.
Power: 204hp, 2500RPM at 75MPH
Seating: roomy and comfortable
The 960 is loaded
The plastic nipple that leads to the overflow tank for the plastic radiator is an incredibly stupid design. The garage I go to broke this nipple and had to replace the entire radiator. That cost the dealership $500. That's right, $500 for a PLASTIC RADIATOR. Maybe that's a good deal in Sweden.
