1992 Volvo 245Review
Great Daily Transportation That Can Be Fun. — 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 great. Add some springs, shocks, sway bars, wheels and tires and it handles like a sports car. Really, it makes drifting a snap and more fun to drive than many other cars. A diamond in the rough. Upgrade to one of the turbo engines and you will be suprising many ricers and laugh all the way
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Sleeper, Different
Cons: 5 speed trannys are rare and expensive to fix or convert to a T5

Volvos Never Die!
This car is solid! It is a great first car and it gets the job done. It runs great and it's older than I am. It's a road trip car. Great on gas, but it's really dorky looking. It only cost $600, so it... Read More
