A classic that can be used as a daily-driver
The hydraulically activated clutch seems to leak now and then.
The charge-relay works when it wants to, which draws the battery flat, and it has to be charged once a week.
The front brakes were faulty when I bought it, but I neglected it. The system was completely changed and overhauled from the pedal and forth at a Volvo-dealer.
The rust. Especially on the floor and lower sides of the body. Rear wheel arches, both inner and outer was severely rusty and was changed in the spring of 2003.
Sturdy and reliable.
Easy and simple mechanics to work with.
Easy to get new and used parts for, considering the age of it.
Not the comfort and performance of a modern car.
Draws attention everywhere!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
