Reliable Car — Good choice for a cheap, reliable family car. It's like driving a mini-tank and its longer than you realize when you look for parking. Parts can be hard to find. Overall an excellent value if you want something cheap and reliable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Strong, Reliable

Cons: Not too pretty. Hard to find parts.

Fun Car — Bought the 940 for 500 bucks. Blacked out lights, put on exhaust (can) and got new tires. Car isn't quiet but isn't that loud either. But can't really complain because for 225k the car is reliable. Not an engine light on, or anything to complain about. All around fun little sedan. Just wish it was a 5 speed.

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

Pros: Comfortable, some power, turbo, loaded, sounds nice, heated seats.

Cons: No low end power.

Volvo Or Abrams Tank? — The 940 is a great representation of Volvo's quality and safety. My brother has owned two, and this particular one is his second. He's not a performance person, so this car is great for him but bores me to death. However, I've always liked the boxy Volvos since my family's first a 1993 850 GLT we got when I was four years old, so it's kind of hard- wired! This one is kind of a clunker, but his first 940 was a tank! According to its new owner, it has almost 300,000 miles on it at this point and still runs like a champ! It survived his brutal driving style and accident-prone nature, so it has my respect!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliability, Classic Styling, Economics

Cons: Performance

Durable — getting the maintenance up to speed has been troublesome 200,000 miles. previous owner did not pay attention to detail, many little issues, latest , the stupid shift/ brake lockout, shifter will not go into park, last was brakes, next will be oil leakage ( probably the cam seal), then will follow the timing belt.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: durability, comfort

Cons: wind noise

17 Years Old And Still Looks Great...runs Even Better! — The 240's and 740's get the cult status, but this car just keeps going and going. The 940 shares most of the mechanical heritage with those models, but adds a slightly rounder body and plusher interior. With this car you get all the legendary Volvo simplicity and strong mechanicals without the high prices. Mine was very well cared for and looks much newer than 17! This car is an outstanding daily driver!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Simple styling, solid as a rock structurally and mechanically

Cons: Only one - slow acceleration

My First Car, What A Piece Of Crap. — Well, I didn't really treat it like a car, lots of off-roading, neutral drops, e-braking. Besides beating the hell out of it, it got me from point A to point B.

Pros: I was able to take it off-roading

Cons: Just an ugly, slow, beat-up car
