I bought this car in 2010 as a second car and has ended up being the best car ive ever owned and ive had new cars...24 years old and still going strong keeps up with all the new cars on the fwy and often passes them going up hill! Reliable reliable reliable if u find one its worth the price! March 27 2018 Still going strong!!!!!
I bought my 1993 240 Volvo with 5,000 miles on it back in 1994! I still have it with only 116K original miles! Had to have Volvo in Sweden make me new back lights but they came in 5 weeks and the car looks new! It has been dependable, great for traveling and still runs great after 23 years!!!!!!
I've had 4 BRICKS, '90-240-wagon, '99-XC, '04-XC and just last week a '93-240 Classic 4dr sdn. Total mileage to date 650K, yes six hundred and fifty thousand miles...You can't beat these cars not even with a big stick...all the woman in this family drive them and swear by them! Only problem is if your over 6'tall it's a struggle to get in and out of. beware RUST! No rust...undercoat and clean out drainage ports. Buy um while you can find them! That's a fact Jack!
As the deli guy said...it's just a nice car....you can goose it up as much as you want...it's just a nice car.
If some one knows how to expand the driver's leg room....share it sister/brother
When I bought my '93 240 from a private party it needed brakes, muffler, tires, battery, some a/c work and a general tuneup (plugs, filters, etc., but no major engine or tranny work was required). Now I routinely get 24-26 mpg @ 70 mph, mostly hiway miles. The car feels strong, maintains whatever speed I dial in, handles without surprises, and while is not the most fun ride, will take me where I want to go comfortably & safely. Two plusses: driver's seat position is excellent for a short person, easy to work on. Downside: while parts are easy to get, they are somewhat pricier than similar parts for a domestic. If you require a dependable, comfortable daily driver, consider this older Volvo.
