1987 Volvo 340 GL 1.7 petrol from UK and Ireland
It's a Beast!!
Starter motor wore out at about 20,000 miles.
Distributor cap cracked.
Radiator sprung a leak at about 20,000 miles.
This is a fantastic car with great performance (although 1.4 is under powered) and entertaining handling. Rear wheel drive is so refreshing in this age of built-to-cost front drive cars. The 340 would make a great rally car.
However fuel economy is not so good (I got about 18mpg)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
