1992 Volvo 960 4dr Wagon


You would think that after building
this car for soo many years that Volvo
would have paid more attention to the
details. The same switches that failed
on my 86 740 wagon failed again on my
92 960 wagon. The electrical demons
under the hood came back ten fold on
this model and I had to endure poorer
performance from a six cylinder engine
than I had from my old four banger.
Doesn't Volvo have any engineers left
that look at these long term problems
and actually address some of them?

Best Features

After looking at the minivan offerings I still bought a Volvo wagon. You can't beat the space and the improved ride and handling over what the minivans offer. The third seat is great for the kids (only kids) and the safety record of the car goes without saying.

Worst Features

Hey Volvo, fire the company that makes your switches and find someone that can make a window go up and down. I also don't understand the overpricing of replacement parts when I know for a fact that BMW uses some of the same driveline parts and is 30% less than what you're asking.
