1994 Volvo 940 4dr Sedan


This is an absolutely fine vehicle if you are looking for something that has high build quality and excellent reliability. This Volvo however is an incredibly bland car with absolutely no personality. I guess Volvo was trying to compete better in the US market with the 940 because it is essentially an American car disguised as Volvo, with cumbersome weight (as much as a Honda pilot SUV), rear-wheel drive, and absolutely embarrassing gas mileage (gets about the same gas mileage as my brother’s v8 f-150 with a 4 cylinder engine! Around 19 mpg mixed city/highway). The car is undrivable in the snow or even a little ice. I would recommend this car to someone who doesn’t necessarily enjoy driving

Best Features

Heated seats, I think the car's box-like shape is attractive in a bland conservative way. comfortable. High quality. Sturdy feeling (except at speeds above 65)

Worst Features

I don't know what Volvo was thinking adding rear wheel drive cars to the line-up. Much better fuel economy with a more powerful engine and more options on the base model

Curb weight of 2008 Honda Pilot: 4,264 lbs Curb weight of 1994 Volvo 940 Wagon: 3,345 lbs That's a difference of more than 900 lbs. So, with that little inaccuracy in mind, make what you will of this review.
