Open all the windows and roof, and turn the radio UP!

"I LOVE my car! It is a great vehicle, and it is well maintained. Her name is John. Clean interior, Camel color leather seats, clean and front seats are covered with Sheep-skins. The back seat is like new. I hate to part with her, as she has been a dream car, however, I am giving driving up as a safety precaution. Neither of us are old, but I think its time for me to turn my keys in. She has been a Joy to drive, comfortable and really well made. I love my Volvo, and will be sad to sell her. However, I think it is time. Best to be one step ahead, rather than have my family have to say "OK Mom, it is time!" This is my call."

"I love my car and am disappointed to see the value of it is so low. This is such a safe and reliable vehicle. It's roomy and comfortable without feeling like a couch on wheels. The trunk has room for bikes, boxes and my groceries."

"Bought this car new - have almost 260,000 miles on it. It's been rear-ended twice, has protected my daughters as they began to learn to drive, and will forever have a place in my driveway! It's now almost 18 years old, drives wonderfully, have not had to have anything major done to it. The AC blower just went out, so I'm headed to my mechanic Monday to get it fixed. The only problem I've ever had with it is the breaking of the visors. I've been through 3 sets, and they're extremely expensive! Need another one now for the driver's side but can't find one. :-( Husband keeps telling me I need a new car - I keep telling him no I don't - UNLESS I can find a new '94 940!"

Cons: "gas mileage is not the best"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I have driven everything from a Honda Civic to GMC Sierra and I feel compelled to say that the 1994 Volvo 940 sedan is the best car I've ever driven. The only downside of this vehicle is the gas mileage is not spectacular (between 20-23 miles per gallon) so its not very efficient in that sense, however this tank of a car is the safest, sturdiest, most reliable car in the world! A plus side is that the gas tank is 19.2 gallons so from where I live in southern California, I can drive to San Francisco without refueling. The turning radius is impeccable!!! I know no such thing of this "3-point turn" due to the fact that my Volvo will pull a U-turn without any hesitation and without needing to reverse and so forth. Parallel parking is no problem whatsoever. This car is reliable to no end, some going well beyond 200,000.....300,000 even up to 500,000 miles and still going strong!!! If you are considering buying an older, used car, consider a Swedish made Volvo (pre-Ford)."
