Sadly I must sell my Volvo 242. Two months ago, my wife of 20 years decided she didn't need me around anymore. I escaped with my Volvo and my clothes and drove to my brother's house here in Eastern Oregon. I now need a newer car for work purposes, so the Volvo is up for your consideration.
This Volvo was delivered new in Montana and has an engine block heater. I have lots of service records from the prior owners.
The Volvo is properly lowered on ipd springs, has GT strut plates, Koni adjustable shocks front and rear, stainless steel brakelines, ipd VX cam, H4 headlamps, ipd aluminum belly pan, Enki alloy wheels, Abarth-style exhaust system, and Hella driving lights (not hooked up but all parts are there.) Also, she has behind-the-grille roadlamps that are not hooked up either.
The sunroof works and does not leak, but occasionally needs a little push when closing. A new timing belt and accessory belts were installed in May of this year. Also, new front and rear seat covers were custom-made, with extra material in the trunk.
This car has no major rust issues. She does not get hot or burn or leak oil. She just made a 300+ mile trip with no issues. Recently the Volvo was repainted Irish Green. The original color was rust brown (ugh!).
 The Volvo comes with an Alpine CDA-9856 CD player with MP3/Ipod connector. The overdrive works properly, the clutch is good. This is a daily driver that should provide many trouble-free miles. The only known issues are some poor quality repair on the driver's door, and the rear brake light connections work but need to be replaced. The speedometer is accurate, but the odometer seems to run slowly, so the mileage can't be relied on. Car comes with extra lenses, Haynes manual and miscellaneous pieces.
I hate seeing this car leave, but I have no choice. This would be a great graduation gift or a good drivable project car. It gets a thumbs-up where ever I take her. This car is 35 years old and will always need some TLC. The headliner is good with a small tear by the sunroof and there is some small tearing by the window crank on the driver's door panel. I will gladly answer any questions and will be happy to store the car until you can arrange transportation as long as its paid for in full. Clean, clear Oregon title with plates good until Sept. 2014. This is a very desirable car. Don't let it slip away. Thank you for looking.

Volvo debuts new Drive-E four-cylinder engines

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 17:30:00 EST


Volvo is introducing a new engine family based on its new Drive-E philosophy, which encompasses "all innovations made to reduce the impact on the environment," the automaker says. Less cylinders allows for less environmental impact, so the new engines are all four-pots. They also were designed to pair easily with Volvo's upcoming hybrid drive system, which "will reach power figures in the V8 territory" and play a "dominant part of the top end of [Volvo's] range," says Derek Crabb, Vice President Powertrain Engineering. Volvo also says we can expect "power curves that give exciting drivability compared with engines with more cylinders."
Volvo says some versions of the engine were designed targeting best-in-class fuel economy. There are both gasoline and diesel options, but the latter of which isn't scheduled for US consumption. Instead, the US will be offered two states of tune of the gasoline Drive-E engine for front-wheel-drive vehicles. Some of Volvo's current all-wheel-drive powertrains will remain available in the US until the company has transitioned solely to the new, fuel-efficient inline-fours.

Volvo will replace C70... eventually

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 09:28:00 EST

Volvo has already announced the end of production for its C70 hardtop convertible, a handsome but seriously dated offering that was last refreshed in 2010. Volvo won't be abandoning the two-door coupe-convertible market for long, though, as news out of Australia claims that a replacement, based on the striking Concept Coupe, will join the Chinese-owned, Swedish brand's ranks, although it's unclear precisely when we'll see it on the road.
"Eventually yes... as soon as possible," Hakan Samuelsson, Volvo's CEO, told the Drive, before adding, "when we are ready."
"The Coupe Concept car, we can put that into production and it will have an exposure on the brand. But at the end it's the cream on the cake and at the end you need the cake first before you put the cream on it," said Volvo's Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management, Lex Kerssemakers.

Volvo details upcoming XC90's new scalable platform

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:56:00 EST

In two weeks' time, we'll be boarding a flight for Stockholm for the live reveal of the new Volvo XC90. But before we do, Volvo has revealed another round of salient details regarding not only its new crossover, but a whole range of new vehicles to share its architecture.
That platform is called Scalable Product Architecture, and it follows the latest industry trend towards modular platforms. The product of four years' development, the new platform uses high-strength boron steel to optimize weight and rigidity. The scalable architecture, set to underpin the next-generation S60, V60, XC60, S80 and anything larger, offers designers more flexibility in terms of proportions. It can be adapted to a wide range of vehicles of different shapes and sizes, designed from the get-go to incorporate a range of powertrains (including the XC90's new twin-charged hybrid system) and all the latest safety technologies you'd expect from a Volvo.
The XC90, Volvo has revealed, will also offer increased interior flexibility, with movable second and third rows to optimize cargo space and legroom as needed. That third row is designed to accommodate children (or small adults) up to five-foot-seven. Meanwhile the image inset above gives us our first glimpse at the new XC90's styling, with T-shaped running lights inspired by Thor's hammer.
