This is my first car but not the only
one I drive on a regular basis. The
turning circle is awesome and the car
starts every time. Engine is okay once
the turbo spools, but fairly weak before
that. Interior is comfortable but needs
cup holders. While the car isn't what
one might refer to as beautfiul, it
doesn't look bad and keeps you from
Handling is decent with a bit more body
roll than I'd like, but it's 13 years
old already. Understeer is controllable
and the limited slip rear diff is really
useful. Few mechanical issues even with
The 940 has always been a joy to drive. It holds the road extremely well. It has a great deal of power both for acceleration. It has a large passenger cabinet very well appointed. The trunk is very large and the standard Volvo trunk to passenger cabin has been extremely useful many times for transporting sailing booms, skis, lumber and other long stuff!
Great second car and extremely reliable
vehicle overall. Very handsome styling
and the SE version is very well built
with self leveling rear shock
absorbers. Its a great daily driver
and I would recommend one highly for
anyone looking to get a family sedan.
Power is good but not great, however
once at highway speed its a great
cruiser and accelerates well.
This was (and is) our first Volvo
purchase. we bought it used at 60,000
miles. Were worried about turbo going
out at 120K, etc. We are now at
169,000 miles with almost NO problems.
(the power antenna broke and the brakes
need frequent replacing because of
weight of car). But otherwise,
incredibly reliable, comfortable. We
are due for an upgrade but just can't
seem to say goodbye to such a great car.
