ReviewI really love my 240! You can drive a
240 comfortably at 80mph. I installed
a cam shaft from IPD USA and the
engine gained 15HP. Volvos are
legendary for winter driving. The 240
is a very stable car because its
weight is split 50/50 front/rear. As
for parts, find a scrap yard, you can
get parts really cheap there. You
won't loose any time disassembling
parts unlike many modern cars you have
room! As for Volvo dealers, don't go
there for maintenance, they will rip
you off! As for rust, VERY IMPORTANT
check for water infiltrations on the
seal joint around the dash! Use
Synthetic oil and you'll be good for a
Best FeaturesWinter driving A+++, very comfortable, room for legs on the back seat, at 80 mph, the engine is going at 2700 rpm with standard shift.
Worst FeaturesAn automatic transmission that shift at 3000-3500 rpm instead of 2000rpm! Good advice: get standard shift. A 130- 140 hp engine like the 740 16-valves or the 740 turbo, otherwise, buy the cam shaft from IPD USA...
