My1990 Volvo 240 I have owned this car for seven years. It has now reached 140,000 and and has many more miles in her. All it has had is routine maintenance, Brakes oil changes a new radiator, and still starts first time every time. A brilliant car will go on and on.
i used to think volvos were shoe boxes with wheels well i still think that about the 240's but i love this car i drove it to canada a few years back with not a problem it wasent the fastest car on the road but it did maake it there and back with ease .the new volvos do look alot better but i cant aford that so for now im good with what i got
one of the best cars i have ever owned. i hope to keep it going for years to come. if you like reliability you would love this car. this car can take some abuse. the only downfall i have to note for this car is that the a/c isn't quite up to par for texas heat.
I have had about a dozen 240 series Volvos, and they are solid and reliable. I replaced the last one with a MB SLK, because it is just more fun. Still, I still own a 1990 245 that my daughter drives, and she has driven away from beng hit twice, when the other cars were towed off. It isn't a race car, but they are good cars when it counts.
I have a Volvo 240 with 289,000 miles. This is a solid car and easy to work on. It is built tough and safer in a crash than most of the other toys on the road. It does not use any oil and I can get 26-27 mpg on the road. The key is good maintenance and common sense driving. They are roomy, with a big trunk and the pass thru in the back seat is great for hauling long items like a couple of 8ft 2 x 4 boards. I wish they still made these I would buy a new one in a heartbeat.
Love my car, just hate the ac in this volvo does anyone else have problems with the ac in their volvos
I drove this Volvo though out most of high school and college. While the 244GL was a safe car, it didn't have much else to offer. The Volvo repair shop was a frequent destination while owning this car. I had a massive folder full of repair receipts that almost bring tears to my eyes just thinking about it. The Volvo had a 3-speed automatic transmission that would skip 2nd gear, electrical problems that caused the alternator to die in the middle of a busy freeway late at night and a pathetically weak engine that would only go 85mph downhill. On top of that, the car got only 15mpg. Also it was not a chick magnet. Needless to say I do not miss that boxy beast.
I had too many problems with my Volvo 240 wagon. It had starting problems, the ball joints wore out, and the a/c blower fan didn't work. I only had it for a few months and had to sell it, I couldn't find a good mechanic too fix the starting problems.
