1995 Volvo 940 2.4 turbo diesel from Belgium
320.000 km and never let me down
One damper replaced under dealer warranty.
Clutch replaced at 312.000 km.
My previous car, a Volkswagen Golf, started falling to pieces from kilometer 1000.
Maintain it carefully, and it is indestructible. A spacious, safe and very comfortable long-distance hauler. Seats are superb. (I have a 14-year history of back problems, but my 940's finely shaped and heated seats bring me to Italy or Southern France in top condition!) Only thing I miss: air conditioning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a volvo 940 estate, 2.4 diesel. When I bought car it drove like a dog, very underpowered. Thirsty, I took car to specialist garage, they timed the engine properly. Now I am very happy. It goes like a rocket, very smooth. 38mpg @ 70mph. I am having problems with the speedometer. It only works when it wants to! Sometimes the sunroof opens then won't close. Hey ho, I love this car.
If the sunroof is electric, the usual problem is the switch on the dashboard. Remove and dismantle the switch. The contacts are usually dirty. Clean the contacts and check the white roller has no flat spots. Reassemble the switch and the roof should work again. Recommend lubricating the accessable running mechanism of the sunroof as well.
