1990 Volvo 240For sale is my daily driver, a white 1990 Volvo 240 sedan. This car was purchased new by my grandfather and was passed to me in 2015. It is well maintained, clean, and ready to drive anywhere. The suspension is tight and comfortable, the brakes grab well, and the engine is smooth. I have enjoyed driving my 240 as far as Montreal, but mostly use it for trips around town.
I have performed extensive maintenance in the past year (~5000 miles):
Engine air filterFlame trap (replaced last week)Intake vacuum hoses4 spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotorAll 4 drive beltsTiming belt and tensionerCoolant hosesWater pumpThermostat2 Front stabilizer bar linksRear shock absorbersFront brake pads and rotorsEngine ECUAAA brand batteryVolvo Radio replaced with modern Kenwood head unit w/ USB and HD Radio
The tires are General Altimax RT43 (very highly rated) purchased new from Tire Rack ~2500 miles ago. Also included are a full set of General Altimax Arctic winter tires with ~5000 miles on them, purchased new in winter 2014. The winter tires are mounted and balanced on a separate set of rims
The 240 has some dents and scratches on the body. The largest dent is on the front left corner (pictured). There are a few small patches of surface rust in the wheel wells, but otherwise the car is rust-free. My grandfather made sure to undercoat the car every year.
The A/C works but does not get very cold, and the "light out" warning light comes on when you turn on the headlights. All of the lights work, however, and the bulbs have been recently replaced. There are no other problems with the car, and it will make a great daily driver for years to come. Just 158k miles on it!
