Reliability well above average within class & year

Owned base and turbo 940 for many years -base lacks power, turbo a bit fuel thirsty. Handling is just average. Load carrying well above average -sedan and wagon. Turbo, transmission and rust worries are negligible. Common 940 problem areas are cooling system!, brakes, fuel pump/relay, oil leaks, front suspension/steering and tailgate struts plus heated leather seat and heated mirror options, as well as door upholstery and radio in 1995. Needs regular basic maintenance. Expect some kind of minor aggravation every 20k miles after 100k miles. You'll $ave if you can avoid the dealer. Good euro-import indies and used parts can be found in many areas. You can find good parts suppliers and maintenance tips on the web. Many 940s get 300k-500k miles without an engine overhaul. If you like the practicality & safety of Volvo rear wheel drive cars then do consider a nice 1994-1995 940. If you need to carry loads get a wagon. If you need to tow then get a turbo. Want power with more class then look at the less common 960s/V70s.

great reliable car

We bought the '95 940 from someone returning a 2 year lease. It has only left us stranded twice - once was a fuel pump and the other some kind of sensor. We've always done the scheduled maintenance (timing belt is crucial and a little pricey). We now have 220,000 miles. I swear if we kept fixing what ails it, it will outlive us both...My daughter's 98 Sunfire was given "last rights" and we're considering a new exhaust and rear bumper for the Volvo and giving it to her. We live in the rust belt and this car has no rust we can see. - I'm not sure my husband could part with his Volvo though... a CLASSIC GREAT VALUE
