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.
great car will last for ever
I purchased this car for $1 and it has been running for 4 years. New brakes, fuel pump, radiator, water pump, alternator, battery, and frequent oil changes... all done by myself. This car is so solid. They sure don't make'em like this anymore.
