Volvo 245 — Another car inherited from my grandpa. Pretty solid car, station wagon could haul a lot of beer to those high school parties. This one had gone in service for Volvo BM, and had extra load capacity with special springs. 5 people + 8 cases of beer. Not aproblem. Apperance - it's a Volvo 240 station wagon! Does it really need more description?

Pros: Load capacity

Cons: It's a stations wagon!

A Brick That Roars At 55 But Roars For More Than 200k Miles. — These cars perform well in every area but speed. We've had ours for 26 years and then some, and it still runs great. About five years ago, we towed about a ton of jagged metal junk up from Wake Forest to Boone at a steady speed without any wrinkles. It has a lot of torque for a car that old, just not the pickup of a Lamborghini. Engine - B23 (inline 4): Torquey, but not speedy. Suspension: Nice balance between living room ride and road racer performance. Transmission: 3 speed automatic, thrashes a bit up hills. Comfort: Very comfy unless you need lower back support. Carrying capacity: Limitless (greater than the old Chevy Caprice over two times as big, if that's any indication!) Looks: The best-styled 240 series. 70's had an ugly wedged nose, while later models seemed to get even more brick-ish.

Pros: Torque, durability, safety

Cons: No speed, expensive to maintain

Great Daily Transportation That Can Be Fun. By Matthew

Built like a tank to survive an accident, performance was not really high on the list. Yet because of this the car has 4 piston calipers in front and 2 piston calipers in back. That makes braking gr... Read More

Perfect Car! By Haldan

The Volvo 245 is a fine specimen. You can throw as much junk in her trunk as you'd like, and she won't complain. She is fun to drive, but only because she has a stick shift. Max speed of about 100mph,... Read More
