Can I make that parking space? Watch me
By brobertson on

Vehicle

1996 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan

Review

Tightest turning radius of any car I have had 31.8'. You can get hooked on this real quick. Quick u turn to get out of a jam? No problem with this 960. Great ride, high seating position, great visablity, firm but not harsh luxury ride with Michelins, great handling, great dash, quality feel throughout, huge trunk with pass through for ski's. Great sound system. Perfect conservative auto. Does not compare with 5 series BMW though - but it was meant to.

Favorite Features

Turning radius, good engine torque, overall feel of the car. Low side widow heights improve visability so you feel more in command of the car.

Suggested Improvements

High maintenance costs at Volvo dealership. Average problems, but none major yet at 88k mileage. AC hose, brakes, switches, winter mode problems. Plastic rock splash pan breaks easily - should be heavy duty composite. Gas pedal to close to driver seat for long legged persons.
