1989 Volvo 780Review
Sebastian writes:

Queenie — This car is a pure beast of a machine. Very strong and durable down to the bolt. Very quick off the start due to it's turbo and light body. Needed minor repairs here and there, but overall it has held together through 2 years and 20k miles of abuse. Whether it was on the road, or off, this car was built tough and will take an asteroid to demolish it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Light, Powerful, Strong

Cons: Requires a minimum octane grade of 91, otherwise she will stall.

This is one of those vehicles I regret selling. I inherited it from my uncle whom was the first and only owner.

1989 Volvo 780 Turbo winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1989 Saab 900 SPG Turbo better.
"The only aspect that is better in a Saab 900 than the Volvo 780 is the truck space or cargo space. There was quite a bit more in the Saab. But in the Saab you could also use the rear seats for cargo because, in my opinion the way the rear window/roof is sloped it really intrudes on any passenger in the rear seats except kids probably. "
Family Car Ranked 1989 Saab 900 SPG Turbo worse.
"You could very well fit 4 full sized adults and 5 in a pinch but 4 adults would be very comfortable especially since Volvo is well known to have the best car seats in the business and I can attest to that. They are very supportive and comfortable. Never was in pain after driving from home to Panama City Beach each year which is a 6 1/2 hour drive for me. "
