1985 Volvo 240 DL 2.3 NA from North America
Very solid car with a bulletproof drivetrain
Completely rusted out after 14 years of harsh Midwest winters.
Finicky electrical problems over time.
Rack and pinion power steering developed a major leak after 120000 miles, and was replaced at a cost of $900.
Never once left us stranded.
Only major repair in 14 years of ownership was the power steering.
Volvos from this era were strong and well engineered. This was before the car division split from the truck division, and was sold to Ford.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
