1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan


My 240 DL is actually an 88 but that was not an option on the list. When I bought it at 300k I was highly concerned. I paid 400bucks and popped on a new headgasket. I was 18 and had no car experience, it was easy. This car was made to be worked on. It kept driving for months until the brutal winter where it needed a new coil and battery. I spent about 200bucks in parts. Making it a grand total of a 600dollar car. It has no dents, so very comfortably, and once you get it up to 40 or 50 - it speeds with ease. It has hardly ever let me down and most times it was my own fault for not double checking my very cheap, unbelievably awesome deal. My father loved my own volvo so much that he wanted it.

Best Features

It takes next to nothing to keep it running, reliable, durable, great in the winter despite having rear wheel drive, safe, roomy, and you just grow to love it. Plus, the heated seats are a true bonus.

Worst Features

Cupholders, please.
