2002 V70 220 K miles $1200 OBO...sold back to owner #smile  Topic is solved

Post by ljsommar1 » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:47 am

2002 V70 220K miles.
Completely up to date with all maintenance. Recent PA inspection (due 9/2020), passed with no issues at all.
-2nd owner, all records since new, all manuals, original window sticker, etc
-car was dealer maintained exclusively until we purchased it (78K). Maintained by an anal fanatic (me) since then
-Bosch ETB
-trans flushed 5 times with 3309 ATF, shifts are butter smooth
-all fluids recently flushed (ATF, PS, brake, coolant, syn oil), only syn oil since 78K and changed every 5K
-new alternator & accessory belt & tensioner
-recent PCV service
-recent timing belt (212K)
-new cam and crankshaft seals (212K)
-reconditioned original axles with new OEM boots
-recently alligned after new lower control arm bushings and end links
-have put 25K miles on 80k mile Bridgestone tires
-reconditioned rims (look new)
-extra set of Volvo winter wheels and wheel covers with 5/32 tread

Cons
-power driver's seat only adjusts before key is put in pos 2
-driver's seat heater doesn't heat on bottom
-AC takes a little longer than it used to to get cold
-key somestimes sticks in position 1 (have to wiggle key and/or steering wheel)
-some scrapes and dents but paint is in good shape, and of course, no rust

$1200 OBO

I forgot to note car still gets 34 mph on highway, 26-27 mpg overall. It has no oil leaks. in fact no fluid leaks at all. When I last changed the oil (220K with 0W 40) the engine shield was completely clean. I am confident this car will reach 300K + with continued proper care. Car is blue.

I don't know how to delete this post but car is no longer for sale. I decided to sell my truck (1998 Ranger w 274K miles) instead.I had mixed feelings about selling either one, so I put up both and the truck sold. End of story.

I enjoy this site too much to ever leave. I especially get a kick out of your off kilter humor.

My wife really likes the new V60. It is really plush-- way too plush for the likes of me.

You just doubled my fan club...you and my Mom.

The power seat got a smilie because that's actually a design feature to stop you fussing with the seat while driving

You'll get another 80 k from that 2002!!
