1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan


This is one of those car models that should never have been discontinued. It's the best car I've ever owned (I've owned 23 cars). People who own these babies are really lucky. I purchased it at 90k miles, and it's still only at 132,000, so it will almost certainly outlive me. It's a minor item, but that 32-foot turning circle is a big plus. Overall I get about 25mpg in all kinds of driving. Repairs are expensive, but the purchase of any new car, even if I could afford one, would be a step down, so it's worth maintaining.

Best Features

Low-end engine torque 32-foot turning circle Terrific fuel economy Comfort, good climate control Durable cloth upholstery Classic design (yeah, really!)

Worst Features

Fixed sunroof should have a curtain for summer driving.
