1996 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


After many miles(145,000), I still enjoy driving the car. It handles and brakes exceptionally well for a four- door sedan. The seats and roominess make long drives easy as it is fun to drive. The only complaint is minor. The power does not match its precise handling capabilities. The 2.9 inline-6 is smooth and free-reving but this chasis could handle much more than the 200+hp that came from Sweden. Although not slow by any means, I would like to have sports car acceleration to match the sports car handling.

Best Features

My favorite feature of this car is the overall interior feel. The analog gauges and controls are all in the right spots and it is not filled with cheap gimmicks and gadgets that distract the driver.

Worst Features

The only suggested inprovement would have to deal with the newer line of Volvos. Although the models of late are beautifully sculpted, I prefer the perfected box. There is no need to think outside the box, when you've perfected the box. Bring back the Swedish Bricks of old.
