1992 Volvo 240 Classic B230FX from Australia and New Zealand
An exemplar of design and engineering excellence
Well maintained by previous owner. $28 fuel pump relay solved minor electrical problem. Tyres, shock-absorbers, and regular servicing, and it's ready to go for the next 100,000 plus kilometers.
This car has the best aircon... no, this car IS an air-conditioner on wheels - even on hot days it refrigerates.
The heater is even more effective, than the air-conditioner is at cooling, at heating! Man, you gotta turn that thing down and open the window a bit, it's freezing.
The B230FX engine is remarkably powerful, yet economical in-the long-run. Total of: purchase price + running costs compared with number of years of use/number of kilometers run.
Comfortable leather seats and lots of leg-room. Then of course there's the legendary boot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
