1995 Volvo 960 4dr Wagon


Our wagon has been very useful. Great for hauling stuff and camping. This is our 5th Volvo and by far the most luxurious. This is not a luxury car, like our BMW 540i, Infiniti M45 or Mercedes 300CE. It does have some really nice amenities, such as dual power memory seats, power moon roof, chrome wheels, antilock brakes, cd changer, Leather interior, Power package, etc. We took her on a two week camping trip and she performed great. The 2.9 straight 6 is a nice engine. 4 wheel discs are good. Suspension is fairly well controlled. We have had our share of maintenance/repair issues, but nothing like our BMW or MBZ. This is one of the last rear wheel drive Volvos.

Best Features

Great visibility. Safe. Nicely appointed. Good conservative looks. Great turning radius. Wonderful hauler. Great city or highway car. Strong, smooth engine. Overall a very nice package with a lot of bang for the buck.

Worst Features

Nivomat rear suspension is expensive to maintain (shocks over $300). Air cond system leaks freon. Seats a little flat (don't hold well). Small nuisance items - neutral start switch, bad radiator, rear hatch shocks, warped front rotors. At 88K mi, I can't complain too much.
