1993 Volvo 440 Turbo 1.7 turbo
Quick, little turbo brick!
This car is great! It is quick, reliable and safe. I simply love it!
All in all a true Volvo.
(at least from my experiences)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 440 1.7 turbo A.B.S. since 4 years now, bought it with 80'000Km and now it has 221'000Km the motor is still perfect full of power!!! (I LOVE to play with these sweet BMW 318 on the highway!)
In addition of the normal maintenance, I had to change the front brakes at 130'000 the starter at 150'000 and the brush of the alternator at 180'000. The consumption is stable at 8.5/100km does not need much oil than regular.
Just love it!!! and it is so comfortable noise or bumps...
MAy be a bit too smooth for sport driving in curves, but lovely at 150 on highway, Switzerland to Holland by Germany, 900Km, not even tired of driving just miss the sleep.
Don't really want to change it, Because to get à car that powerfull and confortable, had to pay at least 30'000SFR For a T4!!!
Well I had some experience with my brothers 480 and my best friends 440 and that two made me sure not to buy a 400 Volvo. That much problems in such a short period isn't typical of Volvo. I'll stay at my rough 240 and help the FWD at the side of the road...
That is true my friend -i love my volvo -Peter Jordanov from Bulgaria.
