Review

I bought "Inge" with about 120,000 miles on her. Now has 180,000 and still going strong. Great car. Very reliable. Only problems were electrical gremlins (replace coil wires-they get brittle - make sure fuel injection harness doesn't rub through where it goes through the intake and check and clean grounds) Engine runs great. Comfortable. All the luxury features. Just wish they sold 960's with a 5 spd. like they did in Europe. Hopefully she will be good for another 180,000 miles. If not, she doesn't owe me anything!


Favorite Features

Comfort, performance, reliability


Suggested Improvements

Would be great with a manual transmission.

Review

Have owned this car for 3 years. Great car if you can do the maintenance and repairs yourself or have a good honest mechanic. Parts expensive. Need to maintain it and it will be good to you. Wiring harness to fuel injectors/coils can disintegrate and cause hard to trace problems


Favorite Features

Comfort, performance, reliability


Suggested Improvements

Wiring harnesses not designed for engine heat. This car was not offered with a manual transmission in North America. It would be a BMW killer if it was.

Review

I bought the car with 84,150 miles when it was 16 years old. No problems other than minor: check engine light, sunroof is stuck, and other minor details mostly due to age. With premium gas and adhering to speed limits driving steadily even with a/c on I get nearly 26mpg. Power is good despite the weight and age and car insurance rates are pure joy. The car feels safe and predictable at all times, comfort and noise level are superb, and so are the turning radius, oversight, and trunk space. Due to extreme UV the leather seats are a bit dried out but I am definitely sold on Volvo and hope it will last much longer.


Favorite Features

Very comfortable seats, great overall sight and turning radius, quiet, safe, inexpensive to insure, and very solid


Suggested Improvements

More durable leather materials, should have built them much longer :)

Review

This is a great car. I bought it at almost 60k and have put another 100k miles on it. Still rides like a new car.

Review

Bought my í93 960 in January of 2002 and donít regret the purchase at all. The previous owner purchased the car new and kept records on everything, down to the cost of replacing the wiper blades. It has been regularly serviced and the service prices have been in line with the Toyotaís, Fordís, and Nissanís I have owned. The key is to find an excellent certified mechanic and not the dealership.


Favorite Features

The ride, the size, the factory sound system is best I have listened too, and the fact its over 2 tons( SUV weight in a sedan :)


Suggested Improvements

My only complaint is the get up and go, but what can you say it's a 2 ton car.
