1988 Volvo 340 GL 1.7 from UK and Ireland
Superb bargain at 400ukp for a very robust and reliable car, but poor high speed dynamics
The boot shock absorbers have broken so the boot needs to be propped open with a stick.
Heated seats broke.
A LOT of vibrating at speeds over 65 mph. Top speed of under 100 mph.
Very very quick acceleration 0-60 for such an old car.
Engine hums sweetly.
Seats are very comfortable.
You feel extremely safe inside.
Rear end is prone to tail-sliding especially on damp roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
