1997 Volvo 960 4dr Wagon


I think that the 700/900 series Volvos
were by far the best. The rear wheel
drive design (which is well balanced
front to rear) gives the best of both
worlds regarding ride & traction. With
the styling update that occured in
1995, the 960 became, in my opinion,
one of the most beautiful cars on the

Best Features

I love the power and smoothness of the engine. My 960 wagon drives like a luxury car, yet has almost as much cargo room in it as many modern SUV's. I seem to average 22+ MPG in city driving and upper twenty's on the highway. The seats are extremely comfortable.

Worst Features

The a/c system is adequate but not superlative on humid summer days. The cup holder(s) are a bit cheap and flimsy (sorry, kids there's no place for extra extra large cups from McDonalds!). There is no coin holder!
