Keeping a '92 Volvo 240 Wagon on the Road & Other Automotive & DIY Musings

Jalopnik Hearts Bricks


In their Question of the Day “What Car Makes you Feel Safe?” Jalopnik shows the love for the 240:

For an almost 25-year-old wagon it’s quite nimble and we feel maneuverability is just as important as anything else because you’re best advantage in a possible crash is avoiding it.


Safe for 1974

A 1974 244 runs into a wall at 45 MPH and all the impact is absorbed by the front end, with the passenger compartment barely affected. Nice.
