Pretty low miles, looks pretty clean aside from the crease on the roof

June, we found your car!

That will buff out.

engine and trans are good.. no visible damage but "selling as is."

something isn't quite right but not obvious as to what the deal is. But yes,... 1700 for an S80 with 120K?

That does seem cheaper than usual

No Volvos in our area so have been checking out Auctions. I actually created an account with SCA yesterday but discovered you can go direct with IAA as SCA is an agent / middleman. Sold for $1,300.

It's repaired already and at a decent price. If they had fixed the dent in the door I would have gone and taken a test drive.

I think SCA has a $250 fee, or 15%. I just signed up, then stopped the process when I saw the fee and the $1,000 minimum deposit :lol:

I like Copart.

Can someone recommend a shop to look this over? I am considering purchasing this.

This is good to know about but it looks like these shops are probably self-listed, which leaves you with the usual problem of sifting the grain from the chaff. For my zip code it returns six shops: the three that are known to be good in this area and three I've never heard of and wouldn't take a Volvo to without more information. I'd maybe use one of those three if there were customer reviews there too, but even online reviews you need to be careful about trusting.

You're probably best off going with personal recommendation as in your original post. Maybe this site is a good starting point for that.
'95 854 T5-R, Motronic 4.4, 185k
'96 855 NA, 145k
'98 S70 NA, 220k (living out west)
'98 V70, T5 tune-injectors-turbo, LPT engine, 293k
'06 S60 R, 167k
'07 XC70, 170k
'99 Camry V6 :shock: 130k
gone: '96 NA 850 210k, '98 NA V70 182k
