1995 Volvo 940 Turbo 4dr Sedan


One of 3 Volvos (89-740T, 940T &97-
850), we put 100k miles on this one. My
wife does the majority of driving (15-
18k mi/yr) for work and short family
trips. We needed room for 2 child
seats & grandmother so good rear
seat/trunk space were critical. Mostly
minor maintenance (oil, gas), two sets
of brake rotors (wobbles) required, one
timing belt (133k mi) - not too bad
overall. The B230 turbo motor is one of
Volvo's best and it worked great for
us. Once the Turbo spins up (lots of
lag) there's plenty of power to move
the very solid feeling car around. Has
the famous Volvo turning circle (better
than 850). Very solid and mostly
reliable car.

Best Features

Very comfortable front seats (especially for long drives), very good sounding stereo, lots of rear seat and trunk space, great turning circle, better than 20MPG. Solid and safe feeling. Turbo still spining strong at 135k miles.

Worst Features

Brake wobbles were a pain and rotor replacement is expensive. Possible electrical issues - light bulbs burn out regularly and we had a quirky radio. Cooling system is starting to see issues (radiator and AC leaks)
