1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Wagon


We just purchased this car last week, and we're loving it! We also have a 1988 wagon, and have owned it for 13 years (356,000 miles). There is nothing like a Volvo wagon, I have hauled 150 lbs of dog food, plants and flowers for the yard, a week's worth of groceries, and two kids, all in one trip. The maintenance costs have averaged about $50 per month. We have it checked every year, nothing major has ever gone wrong, just normal maintenance stuff. If you take care of it, it will take care of you. Turns on a dime, feels like a tank. Highway mileage is about 26 MPG. The 1990 version is almost identical, we're looking forward to a long and happy life with it!

Best Features

Great field of vision, no squinchy little windows. Turns on a dime, parks easily despite its size. Huge trunk space for hauling. Comfortable ride, decent gas mileage, feels safe. If garage kept, the finish will still look great. Longevity!!!

Worst Features

Plastic in interior grows brittle with age, lots of cracks, center console is destroyed in both. Radio stinks. Electrical stuff gives out with age, the rear electrical harness is exensive to replace.
