1988 Volvo 245 GLE 2.4 diesel from Portugal


Rock solid





Water leaks.

Windows fell inside the door.

General Comments:

Solid and built to last. Never lets you down. It's not fast, but when you get the hang of it, you can take corners like on rails. I call it my snake, as I can take bends very fast, but wobbling like a snake.

It is the car that I never want to sell. I got a new engine and repainted the whole car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Awesome car, built like a Tank


Rear Shocks

Rear Bushings



Water Pump

General Comments:

Amazing car. The most reliable car ever.

The alternator and water bump both went while the car was on the driveway. The rear shocks could be considered maintenance items. I get 30 MPG!!!

This is amazing for the year. This car is built like a tank and just as slow Handles beautifully in the snow and ice on all season tires. Never got stuck. Doesn't burn or leak oil.

They say it will go at least 500,000 Miles before any major engine work would be due. Most go twice that unless they rust away. If this one got ruined I'd look for another.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
