1991 Volvo 240 4dr Sedan


I live in LA and used to drive a '96
Toyota Tercel. Practical and reliable
but not much protection from all the
SUVs out here. Wanting a bigger car
for a reasonable cost, I went back to
the guys who sold me the Toyota and got
the '91 Volvo 240 sedan. It's been a
wonderful car to drive and fairly low-
maintenance to own (had to straighten
out some electrical issues after
installing a CD player and replaced the
clutch which was worn when I bought the
car). I drove from Cali to Ohio in
August and the trip was a joy. Smooth,
comfortable, safe. No problems since,
or resulting from, the drive. So it's
not a great accelerator. That's not
what these old Volvo's are known for

Best Features

Big, comfy seats. Great heat. Retro, stylish body. Uber-roomy trunk. Smooth hum of the engine that makes me feel I've got some action under the hood. Good gas mileage. Interior feels old fashioned and Euro (I know the Volvo is a Swede). Sunroof. Big ol' steering wheel.

Worst Features

Electrical issues (I pushed in the cigarette lighter and the radio went out. Had to mess around with the fuses. This sort of thing is a bit too typical in older Volvos).
