1994 Volvo 940 2.3 from North America
Best value for money spent
This model does not have a limited slip differential as my previous models had. Limited slip is almost a necessity in the northern part of the continent for winter travel.
This car is extremely solid, has excellent control and its comfort is a bonus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'd be surprised if your '94 940 doesn't have the limited-slip differential. My '95 940 and '93 940 turbo both do. I'm sure yours does as well. And yes, it is a great feature, as long as your wheel isn't spinning so fast that when the limited-slip differential engages it causes both rear wheels to spin. I had a very scary situation happen because of that. I was attempting to quickly turn left while taking off from a stop. The left wheel spun really hard and it caused the the limited slip differential to engage, which caused both rear wheels to spin (This was in the '93 940 turbo). It made the car's rear-end swing out wildly 90 degrees in the middle of the intersection and almost caused me to hit another car. It sure made me aware of the limited-slip feature, I'll tell ya that!

The 940 cars did not have limited slip differentials, they had Eaton lockers in them. That is why it suddenly engaged on you. Just a little bit of friendly info :)
