The real Volvo still intact

Oil leak caused by stuffed filter.

Wiper motor at 230.000 km.

Warning lights relay at 190.000 km.

General Comments:

The car ain't that quick, but it is safe, very comfortable and has a lot of space.

Almost nothing went wrong since we bought it and that makes me breathe easily when driving on long distances.

Simply a true Swedish Volvo - not one of those 400's and other FWD.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

-Wow! I own a 1982 240 as well, and I also bought mine brand new. Simply nothing else compares, as my Volvo still looks and drives like it did the day a bought it. These cars last forever!
