Volvo Findings! (What have you found on Craigslist?)

Post by beigg » Fri Nov 18, 2016 11:02 am

Whether you’re in the market for a Volvo, trying to gauge where the resale value of your Volvo sits, make the community aware of a Volvo that is a great or poor deal, keeping someone from falling victim to a potential phishing situation, or an unfortunate lemon experience; this is the thread to post your recent internet Volvo findings in!

This thread is intended to help the Volvo community find a vehicle in the aforementioned ways. It is NOT to promote the sale of your vehicle. Do not post irrelevant item’s nor post findings to pile of parts or obvious junk that you wouldn’t consider purchasing for yourself.

As with most “for sale” links/ads, they may be gone by the time you view the listed item. Unfortunate as it may be, don’t hold the poster to its availability. After all, they’re just trying to help or educate you.

There are many sites that sell “stuff” [craigslist, ebay, auto trader, ??? ] . If you come across that diamond in the rough, post it!

Posting the findings in respect to the forum’s default descending formatting, it may allow for the most active listings to be viewed.

I'm not sure what's wrong with that car but I doubt it is a bad turbo, regardless of what the mechanic said. If I still lived on Long Island I would probably be on my way over there with five Ben Franklins to have a look ...

Exactly what I was thinking. I am fairly close, but I can't have another Volvo in the driveway right now, if you know what I mean.

This car was posted tonight. I don't know the person or the car, but at approx. $3600 US and under 100,000 miles looks amazing. If it were a wagon then I'd not even posted it!!

anyone have any thoughts on this http://charlotte.craigslist.org/cto/5896980418.html
I have looked at it last week. I saw a little grease coming from what looks like the axles. TB done at 119,000 and sounds like he had PCV done not long ago.
My Misses has her 06 with 133,000 on it and seems to be doing great. Any feedback on this year model and AWD would be helpful.
