1993 Volvo 240 from North America
Solid, reliable, and affordable (especially if you do your own maintenance)
Motor mount broke at 255,000 miles.
Starter died at 258,000 miles.
Replaced timing belt and water pump at 266,000 miles.
Voltage regulator died at 305,000 miles.
This is the most solid car I have ever owned.
I bought it from the only owner who had all of the service records since 1993. I paid $1500 for it.
Even with the high mileage, the engine purrs down the highway.
The transmission shifts smoothly through all gears.
The gas mileage isn't so hot, but maybe I need a new fuel filter.
I would own this car over most newly made cars.
The B230 red block engine is one of the best engines ever made, hands down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
