Re: FS: 1998 S70 T5 - SE Topic is solved

SOLD. It went to a young kid who’s an auto apprentice just getting into Volvo’s. Didn’t get what I thought it was worth but people don’t seem interested in old cars, or want Honda’s and Toyota’s even though they turn into rust buckets.

I will continue to enjoy the 850!

Checking on shipping right now from Toronto to me. Not sure where in Ontario you live.
Yes, that is where the car is.

Good info thanks.

You can get pretty much any make in a 92 rating, for the record.
Even the OEM one? I think even though it looked fine, my theory is the spring relaxed so that it opens too soon. Much worst for gas mileage.

No its not sold, the shipping for the buyer was too expensive. I've taken it off the local classified, too many non car people just looking for a cheap car. The last person that looked at it wanted me to put new tires and her mechanic noted it had an aftermarket Boost Gauge, and she interpreted it a...

Re: 1998 Volvo S70 AC compressor not turning on.

Re: New S60 Tomorrow /// EDIT TODAY

I still prefer actual buttons like many other OEMs still have. When the touch screen goes belly up after 10yrs you won't even be able to control the heat or the radio station. I think this is a cost saving fail on Volvo's part. For me, this is a huge sticking point. Otherwise it is a beautiful car, ...
