Delightful daily driver.

Very reliable daily driver, never had any major issues. I would highly recommend finding a 940 wagon, the extra space and 3rd row come in handy and the turbo makes these a little less sluggish (plus Hydras look really good).

This car is a tank

It is a solid car that turns on every time you turn the key. The frame is also rock solid, and is overall reliable as hell. Gets good MPG, and although parts are a bit pricey, you rarely need to replace anything. I could drive across the country in this car tomorrow and it wouldn't give me any issues. The leather interior is nice as well, but is obviously dated. Ice cold AC, burning hot heat still as well. My only gripe is the performance, the car doesn't have the instant torque of modern cars, which is fine.

a true tank

This 1992 volvo 940 is the only car I would buy a million times over. At 230,000 miles I'm still getting up to 30 mpg's highway 22 city. Just took this car on a 4 in a half hour road trip with no worries.All original equipment including waterpump, AC system,powersteering pump and ect. Will be driving this for the rest of my life. Just like my liscence plate says !Volvo4Life!

Excellent all-purpose car

The Volvo 900 is the last rear wheel drive from Volvo. In its home country it is a family car, corporate car, and a vacation car. A common form of vacation is to use a travel trailer, with 3300 lbs being the typical weight. Therefore the car is built as standard to pull a 3300 lbs trailer at 50 mph (although any trailer over 1650 lbs must have brakes). It has the cooling to handle that as standard, something that many SUVs today do not. I am using it as a daily commute, and for towing my 2000 lbs boat. It is no problem to launch the boat, the car has ample bottom torque to pull it up without even revving up. As a general purpose car not much can beat this, why I intend to keep it for many years to come. It is a much better investment than to buy a new car IMHO.

BEST FOUR BUILT

I PURCHASED MY 1992 940 TURBO VOLVO NEW. I STILL OWN THIS CAR; I HAVE PUT MORE THAN 258000 MILES ON IT AND THE MOTOR HAS NEVER HAD ANY WORK EXCEPT ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ON IT. THE ENGINE IS STILL STRONG AND IT IS EXTREMELY DEPENDABLE. THE CAR STILL HAS MOST OF THE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT ON IT... ENGINE, TRANSMISSION, CAT CONVERTER, TURBO CHARGER, AND WHATEVER. THE CRUISE CONTROL IS STILL PERFECT...HOLDS THE SPEED IT IS SET AT FOREVER. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WOULD KEEP ANY VEHICLE FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS AND STILL LOVE IT. I DON'T WANT ANYTHING ELSE. THIS IS TRULY A GREAT CAR!

Vety Reliable Car

I have had this car for almost 10 solid years.Its still great and so lucky to have it.Great machine,good engine,good mpg,the only negative is expensive parts,but when you consider that you dont chhange parts so often its worth every penny.

4.1

Solid and reliable. Not fancy

I bought this one used and got four fairly trouble free years out of it. It's high mileage and I would still hop in and drive it on a trip with no worries. Seats are the most comfortable of any car I have ever owned. Repairs a bit expensive, but itdoesn't need them very often.
