Driving my old Volvo 240 for the first time was terrifying

So sketchy.

1y ago

About 3-4 months ago I bought a 1990 Volvo 240. It's such a cool platform for modding, but it's also an amazing and legendary daily driver. Everyone has a story about the 240 from their childhood whether it's their family owning one or a friend getting shuttled to and from school. This is part of the reason why I bought mine. I wanted a bit of that nostalgia.

I'm still not sure what I want to do with my 240, but I do know that I want to drive it in all it's stages so I can get a sense of what it is before I figure out what it becomes. So today I took it on its first drive and hooooo boy was it sketchy.

  • I’ve always wanted to get into a 240- I just love the boxy look and the engines are as solid as granite

  • Sweet brick!! I’ve owned a few over the years, mostly 700 series, but I have always love the 200’s as well. Best advice I can give is to ditch the old truck suspension ASAP and swap in ipd coils and bilsteins. That’ll sort that ridiculous lean in the corners out quick.

  • My friends dad had a black 240 Turbo, and the police department where I grew up used them.

  • You need to investigate why you feel it’s sketchy.

    Is it mechanically sound?
