1991 Volvo 240 STW SE B200F from Finland
Good and reliable workhorse
Radiator started leaking around 320000km and had to be replaced.
Engine thermostat was broken when I got the car.
Headlights had to be replaced recently.
Exhaust pipe needs fixing.
Front brake calipers were replaced recently.
All brake discs had to be replaced when I got the car.
Rear door is rusty.
Engine valves need adjusting...
Alternator was repaired recently.
The 1,86 litre engine is a bit underpowered for this station wagon, but it still gets you and almost whatever you want to where ever you want to go.
A reliable car, definitely, even if it does need constant repairs at this age and mileage. Usually you don't need to fix the same thing twice, at least not for a long time. Except maybe the exhaust pipe. I guess I could get a rustproof pipe...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
