Old Volvos are fa­mously re­li­able. Even on high-mileage ex­am­ples, the big­gest is­sues you’re likely to come across will be elec­tri­cal grem­lins plus gen­eral wear and tear. A blown head gas­ket is a pos­si­bil­ity if the coolant sys­tem seems to be still pres­surised af­ter the ex­pan­sion tank cap has been re­moved. How­ever, do keep an eye on the rear sub­frame bushes, which can per­ish with age and cause vi­bra­tion, ran­dom clonks and poor han­dling.
