Review

Cannot explain how poor this car has been. 8 years of ownership = $9000+ in repairs (excluding maintenance)=> Power Steering Pump, Tensioner Pulleys, Radiator (twice!), Catalytic Converter, Fuel Rail, Idle Control Valve, Electronic Sensors, Oil Seals, Insulation off of Wiring - things that should not fail!


Favorite Features

The few days that is ran correctly - it was a great car


Suggested Improvements

Volvo built an incredibly bad car in 1995 - my experience is typical

Review

This is an amazing car considering what I put it through. It has been stuck in the mud twice! Pulled out washed up good as new. I regularly test the straight six on the highway and it always responds well. Its rpm's rev up and then it goes a lot like a turbo but it's not. I also recently drove my Volvo which has 128,000 miles on it from Micihgan to Panama City, Florida non-stop both ways (almost 24 hrs one way) and it is still running like a champ. It got 26 mpg on the highway but city is much worse the rear wheel drive is awesome but living in Michigan I get stuck in snow and mud all the time. 4 wheel drive would be cool but rear is nice in the summer months


Favorite Features

Straight six, handling, comfy seats, moonroof, looks like a tank, great trunk fits all my hockey stuff, sticks and all.


Suggested Improvements

Better cup holders, better city mpg, larger back seat,

Review

I was looking for safety, stability, "not new" (parking at college can ruin a car), and an auto that we could agree on for my college- aged child and I drove the car for six months before I sent it to him. I really enjoyed the way it handled (stable), instrumentation, location of controls, etc. I was also glad to find that the fuel economy was not bad at all (compared to other vehicles we have owned). My general driving to an from work averaged a 24mpg. On longer distance runs I had up to 29mpg. Very impressive for such a heavy car!


Favorite Features

Gearstick---unlock pressed with fingers rather than thumb--more efficient and easier on arthritic hands.


Suggested Improvements

Suspension and brakes--when wet, they make creaking noises that bother me. Electrical management--very complicated system that requires complete reworking when one little thing is out of order.

Review

That's my cars name. I bought him from a neighbor after the car sat for 1.5 years. It had two Major oil leaks and a Major league corroded battery disaster. After spending $600 and sweat, he was serviceable. Not bad. Since then I've replaced the front control arm bushings. Still needs ball- joints on the same arm. Speakers crackle, tensioner pulley. I'm still way ahead. Not a bad idea to know how to work on them if you own one. Solid car. It weighs 5k lbs, its a tank but doesn't feel it. No body rattle, doors and all Windows incl sunroof operate, a/c works. I enjoy Hans.


Favorite Features

surprisingly powerful 6 cyl. amazing turn radius.


Suggested Improvements

cupholders that work in American.
