1991 Volvo 460 Review
Great handling, comfortable, quick for class
poor electrics, thirsty, stereotyped car (grandad!)
Most Surprising Car I Have Owned... — This car was a Volvo 460 Turbo, with a 1.7 litre petrol engine. 0-60 in around 7 seconds and top end of (in excess of) 135MPH. Very solid with handling and taught me alot about aggresive driving. It also bailed me out of sticky situations on several occaisions. Alot of young lads used to see the car and often got a surprise with its performance. Its main downside was its thirst. Fuel range was poor (especially when using the turbine alot) and could often make the car costly to run, but it was a very comfortable car which helped you enjoy the ride, therefor not being tempted to floor the pedal everywhere!!
1991 Volvo 460 Review
Light. Took even one track day on it and could destroy it.
Well, it's a Volvo?
French Volvo. — Cheap, crappy car. Not a Volvo in it's means but was reliable the time I had to drive it. Worked fine and ran fine. Quite good fuel economy for such a old car with 1.7l engine. On the inside everything was cheap plastic and not Volvo-like.
Primary Use: Commuting to work

Good First Car.. Nothing More Than That
This car is a good vehicle and it's a kind of a pretty Volvo. Not a high performance car but a solid one. It's a 1.8 liter single injection with 109 hp and about 170 nm. So, that's a little bit about ... Read More

Good Car But Don't Expect It To Be A Sportscar.
Performance is virtually non existing. It is kind of slow, the braking is acceptable and the handling is horrible (I have to mount a rear roll bar.) I made quite a lot of repairs on the car, intake ga... Read More
- Performance: Nothing surprising in it's performance; about 8-9s 0-100km/h, nothing wrong with brakes.. Handling is precise, even too precise when driving 60km/h or faster. - Build Quality: Only so... Read More
Car For A Lifetime... Can't Sell It.
Good looking, confortable car, relatively good driving. Slow acceleration response, low mileage (no more than 6 Km/liter), rather squeaky for my taste. Worst part: forward train b/c the terminals have... Read More
Most Bang For Buck If You Want A Car From Price Between 500-1000€.
Lovely feeling of acceleration when the turbocharger charges from low (1750->) revs. Acceleration from 80kmh to 120kmh is excellent for its displacement. in other words the car has good low rpm torque... Read More
Good, Cheap To Buy And Compared To It's Price It Has Good Performance.
I like its performance, high mileage, driveability, looks, equipment, seats, low revs on highway. etc. What I dislike in it is that the quality is not comparable to other Volvos. I don't like its chas... Read More
An Underestimated One
I should have gone for the turbocharged version, if budget had only permitted. But the 460 GLE I owned was real fun to drive around, and easy to handle. Read More
