Volvo Repair Database Bought a 2004 V70 R w/ 89k miles

Post by matthew1 » Sat May 29, 2010 4:04 pm

I don't have time to write just now, but here's the specs: dark grey/tan, 3rd row, factory navi, factory xenons, Amsoil in the engine and trans since 50k. Needs soon: tires, a good detailing. Aftermarket DVD in second and third rows. Serviced at local Volvo dealers up to 50k. Carfax and Autocheck looked great.

Some small white/lighter marks in the paint from tree sap? Light swirl marks seen only when 100% clean, in the sun. Not noticeable on dark grey. Very noticeable on my 850's black paint.

$13.2k from a private seller. I'll have questions for you guys this week.

I just joined the P2 world. It's a very different one, an underhood peek at the V70 makes the 850 look like a horse n buggy.

I'm keeping my 850, the V70 is for my wife :evil:.

Congratualtions Matthew !!!

Make sure to change the fluid in the bevel gear and the rear diff. Amsoil's Severe gear 75W-90 works great. Keep an eye on the trans to bevel gear coupling and enjoy.

Matthew,

Yes the P2 volvos are a different beast compared to the 850/70 P1volvos.

Congrats, enjoy.

Welcome to the P2 R family. I have had my 2004 Volvo S60R for about 7 months now and it really is the best car out there right now. Like JDS60R mentioned, just keep an eye on the bevel gear coupling and you should not have an issue.

Is it a 6 speed or auto?

Thanks for the tips, everyone. I'm going to change all the fluids, plugs, air filter in the next couple weeks and run some Seafoam through her.

The Auto (GT) is great on these cars, specially for the Mrs. She will love being able to cruise around in the VR. Congrats again and good luck with her.

That 5-speed auto is amazingly smooth compared to my S70's transmission. You can't even feel the thing shift!

Not to mention the suspension on Raleigh's crummy roads handled bumps about 2438792789x better than my 170,000 mile old shocks :mrgreen:
