1992 Volvo 480 Turbo 1.7 turbo intercooler from Netherlands
Stylish GTI alternative
Complete clutch renewed, I thought this was only the clutch cable as I saw it was open and damaged when purchasing the car. Very expensive.
Electrical system failed in two weeks. No high beam and no indicators. Also expensive.
Leak in boot (common).
Changed inner rear bumper,was very rusty.
Several minor problems.
On full acceleration the steering wheel sometimes locks up until 3th gear. I have never heard of this problem on another 480 so maybe someone can help me?
The rest of the car still feels like a new one! This was different on my BX.
It's comfortable on smooth roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
