Love It. — 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 25mpg. Very fun to drive and has a very good turning radius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Made from Sweeden and is built like a rock.

Cons: None

The Best Car I Ever Had...rest In Peace--eventually I'll Get Another. — It may not be aeshetically pleasing, but this baby will ensure your safety on the road, get decent mpg, and fit like, 20 people in it.

Pros: Invincible...this thing is a tank; Amazing turning radius for a wagon.

Cons: Drives like a boat, hard to get parts for.

Reliable Blue Tank Of A Car — Heated seats are fun, still needs a better stereo but a great car to haul and let the teens drive

Cons: Bit of a gas guzzler

Everything It Should Be, And Nothing More — I love this car. Simple to work on, unoffensive styling and does everything I ask it to. Exactly what a car needs to be, sufficient power, above average reliability, robust build quality, manual transmission/rear drive setup.

Pros: Durability, rear wheel drive, comfort

Cons: Expensive to repair

Volvo 240 — 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 seriously impressive. The front of the car is a beauty as it looks like a Rolls Royce. The cost of ownership is quite a lot as it's consumption is quite heavy and the parts are also quite expensive. The car is indeed fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a very reliable car

Cons: The gasoline consumption

Wouldn't Sell It For The World. By Sam
