2004 XC70 for repair or parts in Clinton, NJ $800

Post by FireFox31 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:30 pm

Hello, I'm helping my sister sell her 2007 XC70 for repair or parts. Since she has a newer XC70, this sat unused for months and developed a misfire, causing it to sit unused even more. It served her well for 10 years, which shows as wear on the exterior, interior, and mechanical systems. The pictures show the car in its current state (since I'm not local, I had no time to clean it).

Perhaps you'd fix the car and resume using it for work like it's accustomed to. Or strip it for parts, dragging the frame to the scrap yard for $200. The car must be towed from its location in Clinton, NJ due to an engine misfire. It is registered in VT because my sister's primary residence is there.

Asking $800 because I know that behind the mileage and wear, there's a functional car. Or just a bunch of usable parts.

The facts:
2004 XC70, crystal green exterior, tan leather interior
279k miles
Second owner, bought off lease around 2007
Always dealer serviced with all records
XeMODeX instrument cluster glitch repaired last year - $400
Used rear bumper included - $100

The problems:
Hasn't driven in 10 months. I ran it a few times in the past 5 months.
Misfires on two cylinders due to sitting.
AWD not working due to failed angle drive. Still drives fine.
Power steering rack leaks slowly. Gallons of power steering fluid included!
Timing belt replacement was due at 235k mi in 2015.
Crankcase ventilation system restricted, according to dealer. Drove fine for me.
Windshield cracked on passenger's side.
Rear bumper needs replacement, used one included. Front bumper a little loose.
Needs a serious internal cleaning because it transported dogs.
Water got in front drivers floor when instrument cluster was out for repair.
Body has a few medium sized dents and scratches.
Persistent "Tailgate open" warning message.
Front driver's seat heater snapped, burning small hole in leather.
