Advice on Volvo buying??[ALL/1998] posted by Steve Weighell on
Thursday, 1 May 1997, at 3:19 p.m.

I have two Volvo 240 series (1979 & 1980), and used to own another. I am planinng to buy an estate/wagon soon (probably 1988-90). I'm not sure whether to go for another 240, or to look for a 740/60. Does any one out there have any advice on the choice between the 700 and 200 series. Also, what are the particular problems to look out for in Volvos of that particular era?

My apologies if this is covered by a FAQ somewhere.

Best wishes, Steve
