1990 Volvo 240 DL 4dr Sedan


Unbelievable car. I've only had it for about a week, but I already love the car! It may be a bit on the slow side, but who cares when 10 years later down the road I'll still be putting in the same car with over 300,000 miles. Very solid car for being 18 years old, no squeaks, rattles, etc. Handles very well, and the interior is very classy.

Best Features

The fuel economy. I went from a 15mpg city car to this, and it feels like the gas gauge barely moves! I also like the durability of the car, it just feels 100% solid. Reading some reviews, it's obvious I made a smart choice.

Worst Features

The power. It's not a speed machine. Going from 220-225hp to 116 is a huge jump, but it's not terribly slow. 9.5 0-60 is pretty good considering it's a bigger car. Most newer small cars can't break past the 10 second barrier in the 0-60.
