I have a '91 240 wagon. Odometer stopped working 146k and have since then been cross country so probably around 150k miles. New brakes rear. The car starts every time I get in. I can haul up to 7 bales of straw. It’s safe. But the wiring is funky. Stereo turns off and on randomly. Occasionally stalls for no apparent reason.
Some people swear this is the best car ever and at 150k a baby by Volvo standards. Sometimes I ponder moving into the modern era with a Honda crv or ford escape. I do live in the city and though i go to the country or periodically haul stuff sometimes i feel like I’m driving a boat. Should I pursue a new car or just live with my vintage lady?
