Great in New Zealand too

1990 Volvo 740 GLE 4dr Wagon


I bought our 740 GLE wagon as a cheap runabout with an increadible 440,000 km on the clock. (It was a former Volvo country service car). I can now see why people love these cars. Our BMW sedan stays in the garage and this gets used as the family car weekends now. The kids love the back row of seats. Incredibly practical round Wellington which is a tight, hilly city with the boxy corners and great steetring. We like it so much we tried out a new one. Not as good! Suspect Volvo has lost the plot under Ford.
