Question about wagons

I'm looking to buy a new used car and I'm giving the Volvo wagon some
serious thought.

I was hoping someone could give me a list of all the model id's for the
wagons.

BTW--I'm looking for a model no older than ten years and plan to spend
between 8k to 10k Canadian.

Thanks,
Paul R.

No more than 10 years old would limit you to the 850 wagon (855), the
960 wagon (965), the V70, the V90, V50 and XC70.

Earlier models would include the 240 wagon, the 740 wagon and 760 wagon.

Wasn't the 940 wagon (945) sold in Canada?

Up till around 1994, the 940 and 960 looked the same. After that the
960 looked more sleek. The V90 is a rebadged 965.

And to provide more info, the 940 has the bulletproof 4 cylinder inline
engine, the 960 has the substantially more powerful and also quite reliable
inline 6 cylinder, it's much less forgiving to poor maintenance but it's
still a very good motor.

Re: Question about wagons

Thanks everyone for the info. I forgot to mention in my OP that I also
preferred an auto over a manual transmission. Do the wagons come
exclusively one, or the other?

Thanks,
Paul R.

All models were available with automatic and most of the ones you'll
see will have one. 5-speeds were available on most (all?) of the models
listed but will not be common.

1993 960. With little city driving, but a lot of up and down (we live
in the mountains) and mostly at 50-60mph, it gets about 20. Haven't
had it on the highway for long stretches to know, but it has gotten
22-23 at 70+ with the air on. That's on Claifornia gas, which is only
gasoline by name...

Most anything in your age range will be auto, which personally is
dissapointing since those of us who demand a manual gearbox have a much
harder time finding one.

The 740/940 with the diesel engine (a VW rabbit diesel engine with two
cilinders added) have 6 cilinders, while the 760/960 with Turbo (but not
the Turbodiesel) had 4 cilinders.

PS manual gearboxes are much more common here in Europe as compared to
the US or Canada.
