1988 Volvo 740 GL 2.0 from UK and Ireland
An ultra reliable workhorse
Front sidelight blew plus the fuse.
Not the fastest of cars, but is still very responsive for such a heavy vehicle.
It's fourteen years old now and there's not a spot of rust on it. The interior is also very well maintained, almost as new.
A very comfortable car to drive.
I'm only getting about 23 miles per gallon out of it at the moment, but I think that's partly due to the need for a service.
When parked next to my Fathers brand new V70 it puts the new models to shame. You can tell the REAL Volvo!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
