Keith Jones reviewed on a Volvo 740 sedan - 2.3i 8v (84 Kw/114 bhp year: august 1984 - october 1988) and a Ace Award Morningstar of (laden) 1409 kg.

towed ok on the motorway until going downhill in 4 lane traffic as i was overtaking slow lorries the tail wagging began ..i had to knock off the autobox O/D..slight push from the back as just as the caravan brakes came on i booted it for a few seconds ..pulled out of the snake to continue ..bit hairy but i am an experienced caravanner but it was at 100% ratio

Volvo 740 Estate - 2.3i 8v and Buccaneer

Reg Stainton reviewed on a Volvo 740 Estate - 2.3i 8v (85 Kw/116 bhp year: may 1986 - october 1989) and a Buccaneer Elan 15 of (laden) 1485 kg.

I have a Volvo 740 Estate. Automatic. Had it for a number of years. It has 160,000 miles on the clock and pulls like a good un. Fuel injection and modern ignition. Touch wood no serious problems up to now and passes its MOT with few problems. When towing if I approach a longish hill I manually drop it down a notch just to keep the revs up. I pull a Buccaneer Elan 14 L 1986. My phillsophy when I bought both was I would keep them both until we were ready to pack caravanning in. But----we are still "at it" and we are getting a bit long in the tooth!!!

Volvo 740 Estate - 2.3i 8v and Coachman

Chris reviewed on a Volvo 740 Estate - 2.3i 8v (85 Kw/116 bhp year: may 1986 - october 1989) and a Coachman VIP 460/2 of (laden) 1430 kg.

My Volvo is the 1988 Turbo version. It tows very well in all conditions. very stable and easy to control at all speeds. Excelleration is good. Hills are not a problem with the turbo assisted engine. Although the report classes the outfit at 96% I have never experienced any problems. The only downside is the MPG is quite low when towing. But hey caravan holidays are cheep, compared to flying to a hotel abroad?
