1997 Volvo 960 4dr Sedan


Original owner. This is my third Volvo
(previous 2 740's). Nagging problems
during first few years of ownership -
nothing serious, just irritating. I had
less problems with the 740's.
Mechanical repairs limited to a faulty
O2 sensor and a fan installed to
prevent a malodorous aroma from airco
(high humidity climate). Sun roof
repaired twice. The service problems
seem to have abated in the last couple
of years. Bought extended warranty -
so far they are ahead with one year to

Best Features

Handling is outstanding, a reason to keep buying a Volvo. Ride is smooth although tire noise at highway speed is noticeable. Good highway mileage.

Worst Features

Cup holders would have been ridiculously bad on a Yugo, much less a Volvo. Both visors had to be replaced. Sight lines for short drivers only fair.
