"...'cause when the sun dies and the earth is a burned-out husk, my '85 Volvo will still be drivable. It's ugly. It's slow. Kelley Blue Book doesn't even evaluate cars this old. But after two serious accidents and a quarter of a million miles, it's got a straight frame, gets 25 miles a gallon on the original engine and transmission, turns on a dime (well, okay, on some kind of large archaic Swedish coin), and has never, never, ever let me down. The Time Machine ain't a Delorean, it's an old blue Volvo sedan. It's a big ugly dog that slobbers, but it will love you forever...and in a pinch it will save your life. In other words, she ain't heavy, she's my Volvo."

"My wagon has almost 300k miles on it and still running as good as ever. Great MPG with the 5-speed manual, I get 30 mpg on the highway. I do basic maintenance myself to save $$ and over the past 8 years Ive put a total of less than $2000 into this car. Thats a good value!! I wouldn't hesitate to drive this car across the country (and I have many times), reliability is one of its greatest strengths. For combined reliability, safety and longevity there is simply no better vehicle."

"I have owened my 93, 240 for 12 years and now have 172.000 miles on it. I have had no major problems with it. This is my third 240 and is the best yet. It has decent performance and is really comfortable. It is really a pleasure to drive. Even with the miles it has it rides and drives better than most any other car I have been in. It is extremely solid and you can tell it was well thought out and is a quality machine. I wish they still made 240's but I still get away with telling people it's newer than it is cuz it is in excellent shape. In fact when I tell them how old it actually is they are surprised. I highly recommend the 240."
