Used 1996 Volvo 960
Edmunds' Expert Review
After receiving considerable attention to detail last year, the 1996 Volvo 960 does not have many changes. This doesn't mean that this year's 960 lacks excitement, merely that the engineers at Volvo decided not to mess with a winner.
And winner it is, look closely and you will see a very appealing vehicle. The styling is attractive, and cuts wind drag at speed. Under the clean lines are a strong chassis and improved suspension, which so successfully transformed the personality of the 960 last year. The 2.9L V6 produces its power and torque peaks at lower rpm's for better drivability.
The business-like interior has generally remained the same, and except for a few oddly placed controls, it is a nice place to spend time. Leather seats are supremely comfortable, and a cornucopia of air-bags protects front seat occupants.
The 960 competes with vehicles much more expensive than it is, and is a great choice for folks looking for something a little different. Fully optioned, a 960 sedan runs around $35,000. That tally includes the leather interior, alloy wheels, CD changer, sunroof, anti-lock brakes, automatic climate control and a multitude of power accouterments. Value? Indeed.
We like the 960. It's big, comfortable, solid and offers decent performance in one luxurious package.

Should I lease or buy a 1996 Volvo 960?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
