Why buy a used Volvo 240 with Exchange and Mart?

This is the car the motoring journalists loved to hate, but the truth is these are safe, solid and long-lasting machines. Volvo would be the first to admit that the old 240 was never designed for driving enthusiasts. Rather, it is a thoroughly sensible car for people whose priorities are crash-worthiness, towing-ability and roominess. Handling, fuel economy and performance are down the list somewhat, so for its buyers, the 240 was just the ticket. This series of cars was in production for a very long time and there was no direct replacement. The 760 GLE was supposed to succeed it in 1982 but the old car kept on selling. It was still available when the 850 arrived in 1992 but finally disappeared a year later. Traditional Volvo buyers still seek out the 240 as the cars seem to have been built to last just about forever.

About the Volvo 240

If you wished the 240 was still made, chances are you haven't driven a late 1990s Volvo. New Volvos have all the 240's strengths but the Swedish company now realises that they can make cars handle really well without losing the other attributes people used to buy Volvos for. These older-style cars are practical, reliable, safe and strong but not especially economical. If that doesn't matter too much, take your pick; there's still a lot of good 240s out there.

Representative finance example
