Nice find! I've wanted an XC for a while, but I just don't have any more space for another car.

...that said, if all goes well today and the '01 is sold, I'll probably have another Volvo by Monday lol.

I finally found what's been causing my front brake to stick shut. The car has been sitting for a year because I haven't had time to work on this problem. With this tackled, I can go figure out why the rear calipers are stuck open, then finish overhauling the entire braking system. Then I'll finally get my car through state inspection, a year and a half late.
