1997 Volvo 960 4dr Wagon


I agree with the others: an all-around great car. The only glaring piece of poor workmanship is the cup holder--- surely Volvo could have done better than this. Very smooth engine, largely due to its being an inline six. And rear drive contributes to better weight distribution. Rear drive also makes possible the short turning radius-no problems with tight u-turns. I have mixed premium gas with intermediate without a problem. Agreed, radio reception isn't the best, as others have observed.After several years, my air conditioning output is getting weak, but that may only require a recharge of refrigerant- --I hope! Front window sill coverings are pulling away. Am very pleased overall.

Best Features

performance, comfort, spacious rear- seat legroom (a shortcoming on many other cars with their sloping rooflines).

Worst Features

As others have said, the cupholder should have been better designed to begin with. It is very flimsy and mine broke.
