1991 Volvo 940 SE Turbo 4dr Wagon


Was bought in 1998 as a salvage car.
Been hit from the side, but was
undamaged otherwise; Volvo repairman
restored it and sold it at a great
price. As it's gotten older there've
been more repairs, mostly for things
that have worn out. Air conditioning
and tape deck no longer work and there
are problems with the door-locking
system. On the other hand, the int/ext
still look great and it's a very solid
car with 147K miles on it, and no
sign of turbo problems. With regard
to the turbo, we've been religious
about running the engine for a bit
after parking,& have serviced it
regularly. Plan to keep it until
it dies--repair is still less
expensive than new.

Best Features

Tight turning circle; good paint job; good speed on inclines; very comfortable car for longer drives.

Worst Features

Cup holders! It's strange there are none on a car of this age. Tires could last longer-- I've been told the sway of a car of this design causes greater wear. Get rid of plasic-type radiator? Replcmnt of this was suggested as soon as I bought car to avoid sudden failure & exp. repair.
