1990 Volvo 740 GLT 16V 2.3 petrol from UK and Ireland
A lot of quality car for not a lot of money
ABS warning light illuminates sporadically, service history indicates problems with sensors.
Previous owner from new had a new clutch and flywheel at 75,000 miles.
New steering rack.
This is the first Volvo I have owned, I have only had it for a short time but I am very impressed by the ride and the vehicle's performance. The vehicle has a feeling of safety about it.
The previous owner had it serviced every 6000 miles by a main Volvo dealer, some of the work carried out and the cost seemed excessive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also own a 740 GLT 16v, but two years older version (-88)
It was bought by my parents back in the nineteen nineties and I got it when they bought a new car. There had been only one previous owner so the car hadn't changed hands too many times.
Runs like a clock, but I wish it would be more powerful. Planning to trim it.
Very nice car overall and I would recommend it to everybody. Big, long, big trunk, reliable. Nicer with the 940 front, though, but -88-90 front is OK. Rather it be the -90-92.
