1975 Volvo 244 GL 2.2 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Outstanding engineering, light years ahead of its time!
New starter motor at 250,000 km.
Water pump leaking.
I purchased this car as emergency transport when our 940 wagon was written off in an accident.
For $200AU, I figured I didn't have much to lose as I couldn't hire a car for that!
It is built like a tank, runs well, handles OK despite no power steering, and is in very good condition for its age. It is very comforting to have our children (21 & 19) driving around in it; God help anyone they hit!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
