What? — Its the most amacing car Ive ever had and built. Ranked as one out of the 10 coolest volvos In sweden!! Its pure joy ti drive it and let It stretch out on the racetrack. This winter there will be some changes so I can keep fighting on top in all carshows.

Pros

Cheap spare parts, Easy to repair, RWD, Good handling, Very warm winter car, starts in -25 deg c.

Cons

B20F needs more power, 3-speed BW35 and 4,1 final drive means 3500rpm@100km/h, which is noisy and consumes too much fuel. Modifications described above will fix this, though.

244dl 1975, Usa-model, B20f/bw35 — Robust, solid, quality build. Never welded when i got it 2002, and had to weld only a few spots. Engine and tranny never rebuilt and still works very well after 30 years... very little oil leakage and consumption.

The Paradox That Is The Volvo 240. By Chris

A Volvo 240 Wagon is one of those cars that defies logic. A slow, boxy, minimalist station wagon, which changed very little over its 18 year production run should not inspire great enthusiasm. Odd... Read More

A Fabulous Automobile, The Best Of The Best I've Owned By charlesnd

My dark grey 1992 Volvo 240 Wagon was superior in every respect. I bought it new and kept it 18+ years (my daughter drove it for a while, then I took it back). Had hardly a minute's trouble with it. O... Read More

Wonderful Car But Got A Bit Old By nemandza

Beautiful 2.3 petrol Volvo 240. Loved it so much. Bought it in 2004 and had it for five years. had no real issues with reliability, only had maintenance. It was a guzzler by European standards but bui... Read More

A Good Family Car, Student Car, Or General Commuter By al_ngl

I purchased my '91 240 as a commuter and winter car. For what you pay, it drives better than many newer vehicles and has some features (like seat warmers, rear floor air vents, air conditioning, lumba... Read More

Wouldn't Sell It For The World. By Sam

The secret is what's under the bonnet... It's what you would call a "sleeper". This 240 is definitely a keeper, it's resale value is crap but it's sentimental value is through the roof. A dream car wh... Read More

I've been looking for one for years and I've finally found one! Couldn't be more please with my purchase. I've never driven a stick before and I probably shouldn't be learning on a car like this but w... Read More

Did not get the pleasure of driving for to long due to the fact I was not car savvy. I had my brother-in-law drive it and he thinks that it is a very comfortable, solid and well built car. Very low ma... Read More

Volvo 240 By Predeswaran

I am indeed satisfied with it's performance. It can do burnouts and can still defeat many other cars in the market. Furthermore, it can also drift perfectly. The build quality of this car is serious... Read More

Love It. By Sean

Ok acceleration. Good braking. Handling is Amazing. Squeaks a bit. Has needed about $2600 worth of repair. Outside looks like your classic four-door Sedan. Very sharp. Inside is plain. Gets about 25mp... Read More
