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.
Power seat motors have always been known to go out in these older Volvo's.
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.
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
Safety, Safety, Safety!!!
speaker covers on doors were poor
design, otherwise great car!
I bought this car brand new. It is
grey with black leather. This car I
have kept with me for all these years,
because it has been a great car. I
drive it daily and it starts every
time. I often am kidded about owning
one because many of my friends have
SUV's and think that it is silly. But
when they ride in it they are quite
suprized. Many times I have raced this
car against Mustang GT's, Camaro's, and
BMW's, and I have always won. The 3.0
inline 6 realy cranks out the power.
Around 210 horsepower. My one
complaint is that you have to use high
octane gas and the gas milage is still
The Heated Seats, Automatic Climate
Control, The Power and handling. The
odd looks I still get from sports car
drivers when I beat them.
There really should be an in-dash CD
player I really do not like getting out
and going to the trunk and changing the
CD's in and out of the 6-disc.
Review: This car seems to be so at ease
wherever you take it. It
doesn't "explode" with a burst of
acceleration at any point, it just
effortlessly glides to whatever speed
you require. I also think it is as fast
from 80-100 as it is from 40-60.....its
performance is amazingly balanced. It
exudes smooth and graceful. This is the
third Volvo and twenty somethingth car
I have owned and this one is the most
comfortable and roadworthy. It blends
luxury and sportiness....truly!
It has a tighter turning circle than
MOST sports cars and you can park this
baby with ease. When you get into it
after a tough day at the office, it
says "cmon' get in, let ME drive YOU
home". If you are tired, no problem, it
It had to have its power seat repaired
recently. This took 8 appointments, 2
repair shops, myself, and $450 dollars
to make it happen. As much as I loathe
and despise dealerships and
their "slick willie" uh, mechanics,
bite the bullet and take it there.
