1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Wagon


We have cared and loved this wagon as
much as it has loved and cared for us
for over 10 years. Bought nused two
years young, it has traversed the East
Coast a few times and has done it like
the champ it is. If that model had ABS
nothing - save for a complete breakdown
of the vehicle - could ever make us get
another car. It still has lots of life
left in it. No parent would ever do
wrong getting a 240 DL wagon -
regardless of age and miles on the car -
for a college-bound offspring.

Maintenance is costly if done at the
dealer, but there are plenty
detailed 'how-to' manuals for the
mechanically savvy do-it-yourself

Best Features

Its TOTALLY classy box-on-wheels shape!

Worst Features

Volvo implemented all the improvements ever suggested, unfortunately, in other models, which never will reach the reputation and level of excellence the 240 has.
