1971 Volvo 145 Deluxe B20A
Cheap and simple ride, endless space and style
Rust around windshield leads to leak.
Rear brake calipers need overhaul.
Windshield wiper motor was short-circuited when it fell apart, could easily be fixed. But lots of work hours, hidden behind dashboard.
Valve troubles, probably need replacement. Car drives anyway.
Unusually much space - little technology to hide, so you can actually stretch your legs everywhere, or carry 1 passenger + dining table with eight chairs inside the car.
It is very comfortable!
Style - everybody loves the car, and forgets that its performance is still that of a basic 60s car.
Very, very easy to maintain, any farmer anywhere can help you when in trouble.
Cheapest car I have ever owned! But the to-do-list is growing, so I need to upgrade to something else.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
