These cars are amazing beasts when taken care of
Master Brake Cylinder, 198,000
Worn seats, replaced originals in 2003.
Transmission was replaced at 140,000.
My dad sold me this car last year for about 1000 dollars. I totally ripped him off.
This car has taken me through most of Arizona, never once broke down on me.
It is extremely powerful, it may seem very slow because it's a heavy station wagon. I assure you it is anything, but slow. With the right driving abilities you can take this manual Volvo 240 DL to 55 in a heart beat.
Its acceleration and narrow design makes it ideal for weaving through heavy traffic.
Its storage space has been extremely useful with the back seat folding down.
Its turning radius is sick. I can do a 180 in most residential streets without ever having to back up.
Its long design however makes it prone to spinning or fishtailing at high speeds and/or bad conditions.
I ran it into a brick wall, and drove it home. I DID NOT have ANY injuries, cuts, bruises, or pains. Later, after "rigging" the radiator up with bungee cords we drove it to 120 miles (going the appropriate speed limit with no troubles) to a body shop in phoenix where it was to be repaired.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
