1995 Volvo 960 4dr Wagon
Fun to drive but numerous expensive problems detracted from onership experience. Engine failed at 139,000 miles due to "porous block syndrome" which is common with the 2.9L aluminum block inline 6 cylinder engine. Virtually entire AC system had to be replaced. Leather trim on door panels was poorly adhered and delaminated. Factory Alpine stereo was phenomenal. Expensive to maintain. Be careful.
Power. Seats. Alpine stereo.
2.9L engine is made by Renault and is known to suffer internal leakage of antifreeze through aluminum channels.
