He Had Just Bought It… Then No Oil Pressure
This is a sad tale of a buyer missing signs of a terrible engine condition when buying a used Volvo. It all started just this last Friday when new MVS Forums member aero1310 bought a blue 2005 S60 with 160,000 miles from a used car dealer:
On Friday I took a 1.5 hour drive down to Milwaukee to look at the car and take it for a test drive. All around the car looked great, there was paint chips and a few minor dents, interior was in perfect shape with all the buttons and lights working great, no rips or tears in the leather, smelt great, and engine bay and underbody looked super clean. I then take the car for a test drive which was about a 5-10 mile trip through city and on the freeway. The car had great handling, accelerated real quick, and no bad noises. Then at the very end of the trip pops up “low oil pressure, pull over immediately.” My dumbass let it slip by because I came across this message in my S80.
