It's a tank / workhorse

Vehicle: 1994 Volvo 960 Level II 4dr Sedan

I have owned my 960 (160k miles)for the last 2 years. this car is very reliable and offers a lot of options for a 94 Volvo (leather, power everything, sunroof, CD, spoiler). I drive across Texas on a regular basis and it's had no major mechanical problems. Please do maintain on a regular basis and get tune ups every 25k miles and this car will not hesitate once.




My most dependable volvo

A great long distance driver! The 960 is WAY more reliable than our XC which we are about to ditch. We got the 960 in good shape from neighbors in '99 w/only 38K miles on it. During our ownership, we replaced the catalytic converter and now the a/c evaporator and bellows, which will cost us plenty, but it's the most reliable car we have ever owned and we want to keep it going. The rest is typical stuff - oil, filter, brakes, belts, etc. Rear wheel drive is not great in snow, but just get some dedicated snow tires and take it easy and you're fine. Turning radius incredible. Seats truly comfortable.

It has been a great car although I need to replace the AC at this time. As for design flaws, it does not have a drink holder and also the CD Changer in the trunk is not convenient. Other than that we have loved this car.

I bought car from Volvo dealer at 3 yrs old and 34,000 miles, now have 71,000 I like driving this car I think more than any car I have owned, it is easy to drive, feels secure, always reliable, excellent visibilty, turns in small radius, still looks good, I averaged 27 mpg on recent 1200 mile road trip. Major work in last 4 yrs, timing belt 400.00, four wheel brake job $500.00 and just recently catylic converter and oxagen sensor, $950.00, labor rates here are 80-90 dollars/hour still repairs not too bad in 8yrs.

this is my wife's primary car, and it has been the most reliable vehicle we have ever owned. comfortable front seats, smooth power and safe precise handling. our fourth volvo, and still the best. too bad these rwd sedans aren't made anymore.




Another good volvo

Vehicle: 1994 Volvo 960 Level II 4dr Sedan

I have owned numerous Volvos, and this is the 3rd I have had my son in since he was 16. Unfortunate circumstances required me to replace the other 2 earlier than normal. Both times serious injury or death avoided. He is in college, has put about 15k miles on it with absolutely no problems. Have been offered $5500 for it w/139k, but son is happy w/it, so for now, just another oil change, r/b/a, and keep driving safely!
