1990 Volvo 240 DLThis car runs really well, smooth, and dependably. I am the second owner, since October 1994 and bought it from Volvo of Lisle. The interior is in fantastic condition for the age - been a non-smoker's car its entire life. The title is clean. The exterior is not bad, but certainly far from mint.
Is it a perfect car? Certainly not - and if the exterior were in great condition and all the quirks of the engine addressed, then it would be listed at a whole lot more. But, it is a good car, very reliable, and has been cared for the past 24 years.
I am happy to share additional photos.

NOTE: Will not include radio, which is not working
a. Fuel gauge broken, easily worked around by filling every 200 miles
b. Air conditioning needs to be updated to new system and charged. Typical for a Volvo 240 at this age.
c. Rack & pinion system needs to be replaced, or simply replace power steering fluid periodically (this has been the method for ten years)
d. Will need new tires eventually
e. Was in a T-bone crash hitting passenger side, rear quarter panel, Feb 11, 2011. Bumper, right rear tail light assembly and dent pulled/sealed by Wreck & Roll. No leaks at all since then
f. Some clearcoat peeling on front driver's quarterpanel and in other areas of car
g. Some rust on lower quarter panels and in other areas â€“ not terribly major
g. Odometer stopped at 157,572. Driven less than 200 miles since then. Easily solved with replacing a gear inside odometer - I can share directions and provide the part.
