Too much money! Broken ac vents, drooping sunshade, bad leather on seat and steering wheel, and at 129K you can bet it needs a lot if work. Like timing belt service, axles, control arms minimal.

It just has that look to me of a car used and then the owner was told a large bill was needed such as a timing belt and 120K service which led it straight to be traded in then to auction then to the buy here die here lot... I would keep looking unless the price is knocked down 25% and you inspect it carefully. June

I'm with June regarding the mechanical and the price. And looks rather beat up for an 05. My 06 is up to 165k and cosmetic condition is much better - this one looks neglected and/or beat on, not a good sign.

Use the Abscate Method™ and look in high-income zip codes for a dealer-maintained, dealer service records car.

Swap done by the seller's dad, a Volvo master tech with 30+ years of experience. I bet the mechanicals are well maintained. Look at the rear window is that a dent on the C pillar? Seller said " no major dents anywhere" . What quantifies major?
Yeah, I noticed that... I don't know how that doesn't qualify for a "major dent"!

Not a great (ask) price for the miles...
Honestly that's not too bad for a V70R, but the prices on those are absolutely outrageous. With the issues, I'd pay $3k for that car tops. FourC isn't cheap! Must be auto at that price, too.
Also those don't look like R headlights... someone likely fixed collision damage and cheaped out.

Awesome color. I had a mystic silver '98 S90, sold it cheap last summer/fall. I would have loved to fix it up and drive it, but it needed a lot and I couldn't put anything into it at the time.
Even with totally blown out suspension and everything, the car still rode like a dream. Definitely one of the most comfortable cars I've driven.

Unfortunately this set of rims and tires only fits the C30 and son wants to keep the OE 18" Rims.

2011-2018 Volvo S60 Parts - $300 (Durham)

https://raleigh.craigslist.org/pts/d/du ... 90752.html

Here is web for the specs on that rim. See if it fits your car.

The more important question here... who the hell is paying $80 for a USED shock? Especially one that isn't Nivomat or 4C?

We all know original Volvo parts are safer. Even used parts?
