1980 Volvo 240 Review

Review Title? — I only like 242's 4 doors is way too many, 2 is just right. This car needs alot of work to stick with any new car on the road. The only nice thing is that 250hp is easily obtainable through later model OEM Volvo parts or various parts from other european manufacturers that were sharing concepts in the 80's.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a 30 year old Volvo that's stripped down with a manual trans and it get's 28+ mpg on the freeway.

Cons: It's 30 years old and sounds like a tin can!

1980 Volvo 240 Review

Simply Unique — A fun and unique car - Not a day goes by where I don't regret selling this car :(

Pros: Smooth ride, safety, comfortable on long trips, great style with the turbo wheels, easy to modify, no power steering or brakes - a challenge to drive fast, invisable to speed traps (brown volvo sedan!?)

Cons: Lack of power means a low top speed of 85mph, slow off the line, gas mileage, performance in the snow

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

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

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

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
