My wife has a new vehicle and we would like to sell her '93 Volvo 940.
Basic info is:
Located in Central KY, USA
1993 940 turbo ~120,000 miles (Estimate I haven't looked at the odometer in
White ext in good condition, Grey interior leather in OK to good cond. The
driver's seat shows wear but no rips / tears etc.
4 CYL Turbo (very quick to drive)
It's been a great car but the transmission is starting to fail. (Slipping in
Local transmission shop to rebuild was ridicules prices but I've priced used
transmissions about $350-375 plus freight from several Volvo parting yards
(Atlanta). I'm sure there are many other yards scattered across the US just
not a lot in Kentucky!
Instead of fixing and driving my wife wanted a new car so that's what she
got. (and I got the car payment)
I've had the following work done on it recently
New front brakes / rotors about 4K miles ago.
Tune-up 2 months ago
New Timing belt and fresh head gasket /
valve job and adjustment 6 months
All new belts and gaskets when I had the valve job done.
I did the valve job (and head milled) because the original plastic radiator
neck broke and engine overheated.
Car ran fine but started to have a slight leak around the head so preventive
measures were taken.
New OEM radiator about 1 year ago.
Replaced an AC hose thanks to the repair shop not tightening the alternator
bolt and recharged the AC.
And lastly a used rim because my wife has a tendency to hit curbs. (What can
This is a solid good used Volvo and would be a good dependable car once the
transmission is changed. We're the second owner and have had it 11 years.
This would make someone a great car especially a teen. I don't have the
extra time to swap out the transmission and would rather see this car go to
a Volvo enthusiast who will continue using the vehicle. I'll try and snap
some photos to post over the next few days at the website IDed for the email
address below but for now if you are interested please email me at:
