1995 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


Review

I have a love affair with this car. It's beautiful with a restrained luxury and it is very reliable. I had it moved from Los Angeles to Maryland, and it has never missed a beat, even in the coldest and snowiest weather. It has only required regular maintenance. It is my third Volvo, however, probably my last. I think it lost ground when Ford acquired it. Also, I don't like the look of the S90.


Best Features

I like the solid feel.


Worst Features

Terribly flimsy cup holder.

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!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

Review

Like the old volvo style and have really enjoyed the handling and comfort but it has been a maintenance nightmare. Electrical problems with many features such as transmission settings, shiftlock, seat adjustments, etc. Two A/C compressors and two rear crank seal failures. Have heard good things about other Volvo models but this isn't one I would recommend.

Review

I've owned a BMW and a lexus...my volvo leave them in the dust. Put 11K on it without a single problem outside the regular maintaince. The inline six is smooth and very powerful for a 9 year old car. Handling is great. Awesome sound system. Classic Volvo style inside out. The only thing that bugged me was the cup holder (very flemsy but useful with a steady hand). Moving out of state is forcing me to sell, my heart will break to see it go. This car left such a impreesion on me that I'm now a loyal Volvo enthusiast and will buy another in a heartbeat. If you find either a used 960 or S90, BUY IT!!!


Best Features

Power, handling, sound system, legendary Volvo safety, very luxurious, the hidden storage compartment in the rear arm rest (my favorite).


Worst Features

The cup holders (but I can easily overlook that) other than that this car is a perfect 10.
