I purchased a used Volvo 240DL from a dealer in Venice, Ca. This car was to provide transportation for my new family. The model is unaffectionately referred to as a refrigerator on wheels, alluding to it's rectangular shape. This particular model was beige, had a working stereo and 140,000 miles. The transmission was a four speed. The car drove very well. The car was very safe. Even given its age, our 4 cylinder model still got around 20MPG average (city and highway). The comfort and accessories were nothing to write home about, but the seat belts worked, and despite a couple of cracks the dash still held together well.
Story
At one point, I was driving my son to daycare during a rainstorm and a car skidded into my rear bumper. While the entire front end of his vehicle was crushed, my bumper barely had a scuff mark on it. My son and I still laugh in amazement over how safe our Volvo was.
Pros
Volvo has built a solid reputation on safety. This lower cost 240DL model was no exception. This car was solid and held up well in rainy weather fender benders, which were it not for the reinforced bumpers, could have ended very differently than they had -- not so much as a small dent and no injuries to the passengers. The clutch cable broke at one point and I was still able to pop into first from a dead start using the starter only and I kept the car drive-able, avoiding an expensive towing service.
Cons
The stereo sound really wasn't very great and the cloth seats were not the most comfortable. The design of the car leaves much to be desired. The sunroof was manual and was showing signs of rust and leaked around the weather stripping in wet weather.

This is the best, most functional car on the market. The standard Volvo 240 has ample space for five passengers. Some models have the available jump seats in the rear, behind the rear seat. The best part about this car is that the rear seat folds flat. Now this is not like the fold flat offered in cars where the seat is near flat, but it is flat. Real flat. This car is a truck from the Swedes. The seats are comfortable and plush for long distances. The controls are well laid out and easy to use. Downside is the aged drive train which uses more fuel than the average new car. Average fuel economy is about 17 miles per gallon.
Story
Excellent for running around town, though the four speed needs some help working up a hill from a dead stop. Plenty of time I had to change my route.
Pros
True fold flat seats. Great visibility. Excellent safety record.
Cons
Low fuel economy. Cost of repairs.

I love my Volvo. It is extremely reliable. The car is almost 30 years old and still runs nearly perfectly. There is little to no sun damage of the paint. The leather interior has held up very nicely. There are no tears and there is no discoloration at all. All of the electronics still work including the stock audio system wiring and electric windows. There's a ton of space in the station wagon model that I own. I recently moved and was able to fit all of my possessions in the car. The car has a very nice ride for such an older vehicle as well. My Volvo gets about 25 miles to the gallon which I think is respectable for such an old car.
Story
I used my Volvo to go camping in the San Bernardino mountains. It was great because I didn't need to bring a tent as the back seats fold down and I was able to sleep in the car. I love camping, but I hate setting up and taking down tents, so this was perfect.
Pros
The biggest pro is the reliability. You can buy a Volvo 240 for a thousand dollars running and registered and know it will get you where you need to go. The car also has excellent build quality. Everything is put together very well and holds up to the test of time. The storage is excellent in the station wagon model. You can easily fit snowboarding or other sports equipment. The interior is pretty luxurious for such an inexpensive automobile as well. There are leather seats and electric windows. My model even came with heated seats. The driving position is comfortable as well. It also gets... (more)
Cons
I really wish the car had more power. It has a 4 cylinder motor that makes somewhere around 100 hp. It can be a little difficult to get up a hill on the highway at any reasonable speed. This can also affect your gas mileage as you have to press down on the gas pedal hard. Some people also think the design isn't very pretty. They don't like the old boxy look. The transmissions also have a tendency to shift harder as they get older. I don't think there are any cars that don't suffer from that issue though. Some parts can be difficult to find as the only places that will have them are junk ya... (more)
