1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan


Very nice basic straightforward model. Owned 4 between 1986 and 2005 all pre- 1990. An outstanding, safe and reliable straightforward vehicle. I would purchase be these forever and had them down from generation to generation if I could figure out a way to replace the poor quality air conditioner. Placing a board or cardboard (color coordinated with the interior, of course) over the dash above the a/c controls makes huge difference but a/c still can't cope day in and day out when it's really hot or in slow city traffic. Simple, straightforward engine and drive train design makes it easy and simple for do-it-yourself maintenance.

Best Features

Everything. Just a great car for folks who like the beauty of simply designed functionality and reliability. Safety, gas mileage, reliability all tops.

Worst Features

Mmmm they don't make the model anymore so...but the air conditioner really doesn't do well in hot climataes. Brakes pads wear a bit quick too.
