WHy i love my volvo 240
Mick had little interest in Volvos until he bought his 1992 240 SE two years ago. Now he owns three. He says: ‘It was in a sorry state, needing two new wheelarches and rear springs. But it only took a month to get it looking as it does now.
‘It’s very reliable, economical and practical – you can get almost anything in it. We use it for shows and towing a caravan, and it carries a gazebo as well. They’re so comfortable and easy to drive, and everything is where you want it to be, not like on modern cars.
‘ They’re simple to work on, too. Not that you ever really need to do much; this one has now gone through two MoTs with next to nothing needing to be done. It’s now up to about 130,000 miles yet still feels very good. I’d recommend a
240 to anyone.’
